It came down to the final tries this Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, as Nyjah Huston stomped a trick, and narrowly beat out Ishod Wair who had a very large lead most of the finals. The SLS Pro Open brought back the usual Street League skaters but also invited 20 new skaters to compete for a spot in the SLS Nike SB World Tour.
Matt Berger lead the pack going into the finals but Ishod quickly took over the lead with a large gap and a big smile and he cruised around the course, dancing and high-fiving everyone over in his corner. The course was his, until one slip up at the very end – and street league being the contest it is, it’s never over until it’s over. Countering Ishod’s miss with a 9.6, Nyjah secured yet another Street League victory and a golden ticket to the Street League finals in New York.
