Yep. Street League is welcoming eight women into a Women’s Division that will debut at the Super Crown World Championship in Chicago. The level of women’s skateboarding has progressed like crazy over the past few years. These chicks put in the work and deserve to be recognized. Plain and simple.
The winner will take home the biggest first place prize purse in 2015 women’s skateboarding: $30,000 and a one-of-a-kind Nixon Watch. To put that in perspective, the X Games men’s winner only gets $25,000.
SLS is all about elevating the best skateboarders in the world. And in 2015, the Super Crown World Championship will not only determine the best male contest skater in the world, but also the best female contest skater in the world.
Here are the eight women that will skate in the 2015 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship:
· Lacey Baker
· Samaria Brevard
· Leticia Bufoni
· Marisa Dal Santo
· Pamela Rose
· Alexis Sablone
· Alana Smith
· Vanessa Torres
The Women’s contest will be broadcast live via webcast around the world on StreetLeague.com on October 4th starting at 2:45pm ET.
