Competitive skateboarding has been taken to a whole new level once Rob Dyrdek founded Street League Skateboarding (SLS). A few years back, X-Games was the most popular competition for competitive action sports, but Rob Dyrdek specifically had a vision for competitive skateboarding; that’s when Street League was founded. Later partnered/sold to Nike, you can view and watch the most talented professional skateboarders on the FOX Sports 1 Network.
Thank you Rob Dyrdek for Street League Skateboarding!
Up until Los Angeles Chaz Ortiz was falling a little behind in the standings, finishing 10th at the SLS Monster Energy Pro Open and 9th at Stop One in his hometown of Chicago. But that all changed last weekend at Stop Two in Los Angeles when Chaz qualified 8th in Prelims, earning himself a pass into the Finals.
Chaz used this strong qualifying position to his advantage by remaining consistent, scoring higher than an 8.1 on almost every one of his attempts in the Finals. Chaz continued to flip in and out of multiple tricks while bouncing around the leaderboard with Torey and Nyjah, and in the end Chaz walked away with a Second Place win at Stop Two of the 2014 Street League Skateboarding World Tour in Los Angeles.
This strong finish not only bumped Chaz from 10th to 6th overall, he also bumped 2013 Super Crown Champ Chris Cole out of contention for this years Championship. That means we are guaranteed to see a brand new Champion in 2014.
Find out live Sunday, August 24th, on FOX Sports 1.
