Street League Skateboarding Championship
Street League Skateboarding

Rob Dyrdek has been apart of the skateboarding world for more than two decades, turning pro in 1991 at the age of 16. In recent years he has become a household names with his MTV shows ‘Rob & Big‘, ‘Fantasy Factory‘, and most recently ‘Ridiculousness‘. He created a feature film called ‘Street Dreams‘ and has even expanded his career into toys and cartoons with the Wild Grinders.

With all the accolades that he has already accomplished, Dyrdek’s white whale has always been to create an actual professional skateboarding league, similar to those in other sports like the National Basketball Association or Major League Baseball. In 2010 he made that dream a reality by starting up Street League Skateboarding. In it’s third year of competition, the league has become wildly popular and will air its championship stop in New Jersey later this month on ESPN.

Out of a field of 24 riders, the final 8 competing for the title of Street League Champion and a $200,000 first place prize will be (in order of current standings) Nyjah Huston, Paul Rodriguez, Sean Malto, Chris Cole, Chaz Ortiz, Luan Oliveira, Bastien Salabanzi, and Ryan Sheckler.

Tune into ESPN Sunday, August 26th at 2pm PST to watch the action live and see who takes home the title! I got my money on 2011 5th place finisher, Paul Rodriguez. Who do you think will win?!
