Street League Pro Open: Barcelona
May 17, 2015 Article By TWS
Nyjah Huston won the Barcelona Pro Open today with Paul Rodriguez in second and Evan Smith in third. Nyjah had a couple bails during the finals and it didn’t look like he’d take the top spot, but then he unleashed his 270 kickflip lip and shook the arena. Paul could’ve won with his last chance, he needed a 8.4 and he went for a nollie heelflip crooked grind to nollie heelflip out, but couldn’t put it down. Once again, the teenager with ice water in his veins takes home another SLS trophy, this time from Barcelona, Spain. It’s definitely worth noting Evan Smith’s crowd-favorite performance all day, flying around the course hucking huge kickflip stalefishes, alley-oop 540s, and transfers that got the crowd, and the other pros in the audience, frothing. We’re so stoked he’ll be a part of Street League this year.
Nyjah’s win earned him a Golden Ticket straight into the Super Crown Championship in October. It also put him at the top of the championship points leaderboard, after placing second earlier this year at the Tampa Pro contest. And welcome Evan Smith and Cody McEntire to the League! Tune in on July 11 for the LA stop on the 2015 SLS Nike SB World Tour.

We are almost finished with construction for the Skate Agora BDN Barcelona plaza! The plaza will be a permanent park in Spain and the grand opening weekend kicks off with the Street League Nike SB Pro Open May 16-17. This SLS Certified plaza is designed and built with the same attention and detail as the one-of-a-kind arena courses we’ve built in the SLS Nike SB World Tour.
On May 16th, 30 newcomer pros: Adrien Bulard, Albert Nyberg, Alec Majerus, Blake Carpenter, Boo Johnson, Carlos Ribeiro, Chris Joslin, Chris Pfanner, Cody McEntire, Curren Caples, Dane Burman, Daniel Lebron, Dlamini Dlamini, Evan Smith, Firdaus Rahman, Forrest Edwards, Fran Molina, Jack Curtin, Karsten Kleppan, Louie Lopez, Madars Apse, Maxime Geronzi, Moses Adams, Nassim Guammaz, Nick Tucker, Riso Tury, Ryo Sejiri, Tim Zom, Tommy Fynn, and Youness Amran will battle it out for their chance to skate against the existing SLS Pros in Day Two on May 17th. Only eight newcomers will advance from Day One to Day Two, and two of those eight will earn a spot on the League roster and a chance to compete in the 2015 SLS Nike SB World Tour.
The overall winner of the Day Two Final will be crowned the winner and earn a Golden Ticket to the 2015 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship in Chicago, IL, USA on October 4th.
Once the Pro Open dust has settled the Skate Agora BDN Barcelona will live on as a permanent fixture in the already thriving Barcelona skateboard community.

In 2013 X-Games hosted Street League Skateboarding on their international tour. As the official builders of Street League we were able to create some unique street courses for each country. It was a awesome experience to say the least. From Brazil to Barcelona to Munich and finally back to Los Angeles it definitely worth a look back at.
The 15,500-square-foot concrete skatepark we built at Santa Rosa Park is officially open. The San Luis Obispo Skatepark grand opening was packed with hundreds of people, an awesome live band and a DJ at opposite ends of the skate park booming jams.
