  1. What is the SLS World Tour?

    First stop - London

    The Street League Skateboarding World Tour is a new multi-round event format that replaces the Pro Open event this year.

    The format gives more skaters from around the world a chance of competing on to the World Tour. The tour starts in London this weekend and moves on to Los Angeles, U.S and for its third stop, the World Championships in Mexico City, Mexico.

    In the men's format skaters compete in the Global Open qualifiers, quarter-finals and semi-finals to reach today's finals. The women's format is slightly different in that skaters reach the semi-finals directly after their Global Open qualifiers.

    American Nyjah Huston and Australia's Shane O'Neill are among the big names competing in London.

  2. Tokyo qualifying starts here

    Whoever it is that wins the SLS World Tour in London this weekend, the event is certain to go down in history as the first-ever Olympic qualifier in the sport of skateboarding.

    The Open qualifying process allows local and other international skaters to compete for a chance to make the quarter-finals and semi-finals and perhaps even the final against some of the best-known skaters on the planet.

    There were 45 different nations on show among the 154 qualifiers trying to become one of the 12 women or 10 men to compete against the elite competitors in the world at the Copper Box – itself an Olympic arena – over the weekend.

  5. Meet Lena - one of Finland’s oldest skateboarders

    When Lena was 61, she invested in a skateboard because she was worried her bike would be stolen. Just four years later, she skates everywhere and has taken up graffiti art and acrobatics. The local celebrity also teaches others at Lena’s Early Skate Bird classes.

    But she hasn’t stopped there. When Lena heard about a project to open a skate park in Uganda, she went out to help, and donated 60 skateboards in the process. Now? She’s involved with building another skate park in northern Uganda.
