In its 83rd Issue (February 2011), The Skateboard Mag put the first annual Street League under a fine-toothed comb, analyzing its origins, present, and future place in skateboarding. Without going into detail, below is the spread and images from all three stops. One thing that is for sure, the courses by California Skateparks and California RampWorks raise the bar for skatepark courses in the contest arena. Have high expectations for the 2nd annual, 2011 Street League Pro Tour.
The 3rd and final stop of the first annual Street League Skateboarding Pro Tour wrapped up in Las Vages on September 25th. California Skateparks and California RampWorks built yet another flawless, indoor concrete plaza. The contest kept skaters and spectators on edge, as the win boiled down to the last trick between Chris Cole and Shane O’neill. When Chris Cole fell on his last attempt, Shane O’neill was able to eek ahead and take home the 150 gs, not to mention 10 extra grand for 2 best tricks in the contest. Not bad for a 20 year-old’s earnings. The real-time scoring at Street League events allows for fans to follow every trick, and keep track as skaters move up and down the ranks. Street League Vegas was a great event and a great way to wrap up its season. See you next year!
If you missed SL Vegas Live, then catch it on ESPN 2. It airs Sept. 29th. 5pmPT, 8PM ET.

The second stop of Street League Skateboarding Pro Tour is this weekend (September 11, 2010) at Citizen Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA. California RampWorks are busy helping California Skateparks build the course. Practice starts on Friday.
The design, is a collaboration of efforts between Skateparks’ Colby Carter and Joe Ciaglia, and Street League’s Rob Dyrdek. Here is a look at the design for 2nd stop.
There are four sections 1) Creative 2) Tech 3) Line 4) Big Stair Set
Here is what lead designer of California Skateparks, Colby Carter, says:
The design team gathered inspiration for their vision from indoor malls and entry plazas to create the setting for CB Arena in Ontario, California. Implementing a “blocky” theme, the design incorporates terracing and staggered stairs sets that wrap the elevated areas. The chunky, block features with the stacked, cantilevered detailing and the color block paving pattern gives this course design a style and flavor true to southern California.
