A new generation of technical street skateboarders, breakout performances in the Women’s division, and two new riders added to the 2018 Street League Skateboarding World Tour: The 2018 SLS Pro Open London presented by Monster Energy had it all. The crowd at London’s Copper Box Arena witnessed a weekend of world-class skateboarding in the first-ever SLS event in the United Kingdom.
Now in its fifth year, the SLS Pro Open event provides a unique chance for Non-SLS Pros to join the Street League Skateboarding World Tour. With London as the location, the high-stakes competition attracted an international field of top street skaters, including pros from Australia, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Great Britain, Japan, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Portugal, Slovakia, and the United States. This year’s SLS Pro Open also featured an additional qualifying event into the SLS Women’s World Championship in October.
