1st Place SLS Ranking – Shane O’Neill:
Currently holding the number one spot heading into the 2017 Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, elite skateboarder Shane O’Neill is really making his mark on the league right now. Sitting at 374.00 Championship Points in the Nike SB SLS, Shane O’Neill has a comfortable lead over his closest challenger, Nyjah Huston.
While O’Neill’s lead is significant right now at almost ten points, that could all change fairly quickly when we start getting into the main portion of the 2017 Street League Skateboarding contest schedule. At least for the moment though, Shane is enjoying his spot at the top of the rankings in the world class Nike SB league. Shane O’Neill is a 26 year old Australian skateboarder, and right now his biggest sponsorships include Nike SB, Primitive Skateboards, Thunder, Spitfire, Diamond, Grizzly Griptape, Monster Energy, Glassy Sunhaters, and more.
2nd Place SLS Ranking – Nyjah Huston:
One of the most elite and well known professional skateboarders in the world today is definitely Nyjah Huston, who is currently standing in the second place ranking within the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour. At the present time, Nyjah Huston is sitting pretty at a total of 365.00 Championship Points, giving him a profound lead over the rest of the top ranked skateboarders in this world class league.
Considering that the third place ranked skateboarder in this league is standing at 327.00 points, it is going to be difficult for anyone to unseat Nyjah Huston in the 2017 season. Nyjah Huston is only 22 years old right now, indicating that this American professional skateboarder’s career likely has plenty more longevity left in it. As it stands now, Nyjah Huston’s sponsorship profile is partially composed of Element Skateboards, Ricta Wheels, Nike SB, and several others.
3rd Place SLS Ranking – Luan Oliveira:
Another well known personality within the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour is Luan Oliveira, and at this time Luan is holding onto the third place ranking within this prestigious skateboarding league. Right now Luan is standing at 327.00 Championship Points in the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, and unlike someone like Nyjah Huston, Luan is definitely going to have to work very hard to protect his third place ranking.
This is because Luan Oliveira’s closest challenger is fourth place ranked Paul Rodriguez, who is only two points behind Luan with 325.00 Championship Points. At 26 years of age, Luan still has a lot of skateboarding left ahead of him, but is certainly not among the youngest competitors in the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour. Oliveira’s sponsorship profile breaks down into Nike SB, Flip Skateboards, Beats by Dre, Independent Trucks, Spitfire Wheels, and a handful of other smaller sponsors.
4th Place SLS Ranking – Paul Rodriguez:
Among the most famous and popular professional skateboarders currently competing in the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, Paul Rodriguez is holding onto a high ranking in this league at the moment. His fourth place ranking in the Nike SB SLS is currently backed by a total of 325.00 Championship Points, giving P. Rod a comfortable points cushion over his closest challenger, which is fifth place ranked Cody McEntire.
Cody has a points total right now of 302.00 Championship Points, allowing P. Rod to sit 23.00 points ahead in fourth place. California native Paul Rodriguez is definitely one of the older and more veteran skateboarders still competing in the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, and at 32 years of age it is difficult to say how many more seasons P. Rod has left in his career. Paul’s biggest sponsorships include Nike SB, Plan B Skateboards, Nixon, Mountain Dew, and a handful of other prominent sponsors.
5th Place SLS Ranking – Cody McEntire:
Another big name currently competing in Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour is Cody McEntire, and his ranking within the Nike SB league is sitting at fifth place heading into the 2017 contest schedule. Standing at 302.00 Championship Points right now, Cody McEntire has a very promising position within this world class professional skateboarding league.
This American born skateboarding professional is 29 years old at this time, making him among the older and more veteran athletes still competing in the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour. Cody has a really impressive street skating style, and clearly many others have noticed this considering Cody’s colossal sponsorship profile. Some of Cody’s big name sponsors include Blind Skateboards, RDS, Silver, FKD, Filmbot, OC Ramps, Wreck Wheels, and a handful of other sponsors as well.
6th Place SLS Ranking – Tom Asta:
Tom Asta is another big name favorite currently competing within the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, and right now Asta is sitting in sixth place with 296.00 Championship Points in total. Skating out of his home state of Pennsylvania in the United States, Tom Asta is a skateboarder who fundamentally comes from a more east-coast style of street skateboarding.
Asta is a regular stance skateboarder, and at 27 years old he is close to the median league age, but is also more or less a veteran of the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour. Tom Asta has a really nice array of skateboarding sponsorships, and some of these sponsors include Santa Cruz, LRG, eS, Ricta, MOB, Thunder, Electric, FKD, Reign, and more.
7th Place SLS Ranking – Ryan Decenzo:
Ryan Decenzo is yet another prominent skateboarding athlete currently competing within the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour. He is a highly skilled athlete within this league, and at the seventh place ranking Ryan Decenzo is a force to be reckoned with right now. He definitely could be a major threat to some of the higher ranked pros as the 2017 contest schedule starts to heat up. Decenzo is sitting at a total of 290.00 Championship Points at the moment, giving him a sizeable margin of almost ten points between him and the eighth ranked skateboarder, Chris Joslin.
Decenzo has definitely developed his own signature style over the years, and a great example of that style is when he landed a nollie back noseblunt that won him a Best Trick title at a major Dew Tour competition. Considering that Decenzo is another skateboarder over the age of thirty, he is definitely another seasoned veteran, and we can only hope he’s got many more seasons left in his career. Among Ryan’s biggest sponsorships, there are several major ones including Globe Shoes, Darkstar, Bones Wheels, Independent Trucks, Red Bull, and some smaller ones as well.
8th Place SLS Ranking – Chris Joslin:
Holding the eighth place ranking within the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour, professional skateboarder Chris Joslin is definitely a powerhouse in this league. As we get ever closer to the 2017 contest schedule, Chris Joslin is currently standing at 281.00 Championship Points in all. Another California native, Chris Joslin is a regular stance skateboarder who is a major player for the Plan B Skateboarding company.
Joslin is only 20 years old right now, and so the fact that he is so young and already ranked in the top ten within the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour is pretty amazing. Chris Joslin is another professional skateboarder who has accrued an impressive sponsorship profile through his admittedly short career. That sponsorship profile breaks down into Plan B Skateboards, Etnies, Venture, Grizzly, Bones Wheels, Active, Bones Swiss, Arnette, and a handful of other big name sponsors.
