We are so stoked to have such a talented bunch on our Sk8Kings team in all disciplines of skateboarding - including slalom racing, freestyle and park/vert!
This year - 2022 - marks a milestone for slalom racing with its debut at the World Skate Games in San Juan, Argentina (Oct 27-Nov 1) - our first big step toward the Olympics! The selection criteria for this first-time out includes the top 20 pro men and women from the ISSA World Ranking. Sk8Kings has four riders on that pre-qualified honor roll who all received invites to represent Team USA at this first Games! On top of that, two more of our young pro riders claimed their spots with top results at official qualifying season events.
We are SO HONORED to present those six Sk8Kings Team riders who qualified for Team USA this season! Thank you for representing in such a spectacular way!
