SLS Super Crown Championship Presented by Cariuma Set for Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE – Street League Skateboarding, the world’s preeminent professional skateboarding series for over a decade, will bring the world’s best street skaters to Jacksonville for the SLS Super Crown World Championship presented by Cariuma on Nov. 13 and 14.

The 2021 SLS Championship Tour has featured a roster of more than 50 of the most elite international street skaters – including 23 Olympians. The final stop will take stage on a uniquely designed skate plaza on the banks of the St. John River.

The top four men’s and women’s skaters in the tour standings have already qualified for the Nov. 14 Super Crown Finals, while the remaining athletes will be vying for the last four spots in each final during last-chance qualifiers on Saturday.

Nyjah Huston (Huntington Beach, Calif.) will be seeking his fourth-straight SLS title, qualifying in the top position ahead of Felipe Gustavo (Brasilia, Brazil), Alex Midler (Los Angeles, Calif.) and Gustavo Ribeiro (Lisbon, Portugal).

Among the men’s skaters still looking for a spot in the final are local star Jamie Foy (Deerfield Beach, Fla.), as well as 2020 Olympic silver medalist Kelvin Hoefler (São Paulo, Brazil) and bronze medalist Jagger Eaton (Mesa, Ariz.).

In the women’s event, the top four finishers from the Tokyo Olympics have qualified for the final: Rayssa Leal (Imperatriz, Brazil; silver), Funa Nakayama (Toyama City, Japan; bronze), Roos Zwetsloot (Zeist, Netherlands; fourth) and Momiji Nishiya (Osaka, Japan; gold).

Reigning SLS champion Pamela Rosa (São José dos Campos, Brazil) sits fifth and will be on the hunt for a spot in the final.

Season standing points will impact the start order for both the last-chance qualifier and final, but will not factor into scoring for either round, therefore any skater has the ability to make the finals and win the championship.
