As an International Skateboard Federation (ISF) world qualifier contest, 30 Pros will battle for just two new spots on the SLS Nike SB World Tour roster along side SLS Pros. The winner of the SLS Nike SB Pro Open will also walk away with a Golden Ticket straight to the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.
