VIDEO: Monster Energy Takes You On An Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Look into SLS Nike SB Pro Open

Monster Energy presents an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into the first international Street League Skateboarding Nike SB Pro Open Barcelona featuring highlights straight from Barcelona’s real life skateboard paradise and the freshly built Skate Agora BDN plaza by the Mediterranean seaside where skateboarders from around the world competed for two coveted spots on the SLS Nike SB World Tour – stacked with the largest prize purse in skateboarding history – and one Golden Ticket to advance straight to the 2015 Super Crown Championship in Chicago in October.

Few cities on earth rival Barcelona’s endless supply of perfect street spots and skate history and the best thing about the SLS Nike SB Pro Open is seeing skateboarders like Monster Energy’s Chris Cole, Shane O’Neill, Ishod Wair, Peter Ramondetta, Matt Berger and unbeatable Nyjah Huston competing against the world’s most elite skateboarders.

A huge congratulation goes out to Huston who once again prevailed against the world’s best skateboarders, winning $25,000 for first place and a Golden Ticket entry into the SLS Nike SB Super Crown Championship.

Meanwhile, the legacy of Street League Skateboarding will remain alive and well in Spain, as the California Skateparks-designed Skate Agora BDN plaza remains a permanent, free-to-use facility for the thriving Barcelona skateboarding community. The SLS-certified skate plaza not only adds yet another attraction to the Spanish skateboarding mecca, but also provides a platform for hosting future events and additional league programs.
