Rob Dyrdek is bringing you the 2011 Street League Skateboarding Series presented by DC Shoes fueled by Monster Energy.
Founded by Rob Dyrdek, Street League features 24 of the worlds top street skateboarders competing exclusively for a groundbreaking $1.6 million prize purse watch in person or on ESPN.
Last year, fans witnessed historical endings at each event with Nyjah Huston, Sean Malto, and Shane O'Neill all having to land their final trick to clinch the first place honors and $150,000 in prize money. When the dust settled, sixteen year-old Nyjah Huston was crowned the overall Street League Series champion.
The stakes are being raised for the 2011 SLS skateboarding with the addition of a winner-takes-all Championship on August 28th. Only the top ten Street League Pros and their skateboards will qualify to compete for $200,000 and the Street League Championship watch and ring - the largest first place prize in skateboarding history. Winners of the first three stops will have a golden ticket directly to the Championship event with the seven other contenders being determined by overall ranking.
