It’s about to get heavy. We’ seen the same faces for the most part over the last couple of years STREET LEAGUE has been in existence but never before have we seen new faces get mixed in to stir up a little trouble. You old guys: Cole, P-Rod, HUSTON, be warned. These faces getting down on the street over the past couple of years are about to throw down with you in Street League. Let’s get in on!
The Selection consists of two separate qualifiers during April 2012, one domestic and one European. Five of the six STREET LEAGUE openings will be awarded through the U.S. qualifier, which will feature a video contest consisting of never-before-seen footage from ten of the most respected American pros released on THE BERRICS April 2, 2012. Votes from the fans, Street League judges, and the current Street League pros will decide who joins Street League 2012. The contenders in The Selection represent some of the most respected names in skateboarding including: Ishod Wair, Austyn Gillette, Ryan Decenzo, Tom Asta, Matt Miller, Jack Curtin, Vincent Alvarez, Chima Ferguson, Jordan Hoffart and Jimmy Carlin.
This is the first time in Street League history that new skaters have been invited to join the most elite roster in professional skateboarding. Once selected, the six additional skaters will join the top eighteen returning Street League pros for the 2012 season – a list that includes heavyweights like Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Ryan Sheckler, Torey Pudwill, Paul Rodriguez and 2011’s Street League Champion, Sean Malto.
