After three years of suspension of outdoor activities, many skateboard merchants and outdoor activity organizations have started planning to hold a fun skateboarding competition in 2023. Let’s take a look at what activities are available!
We will also hold an event to showcase Veymax Skateboard products online in the second half of 2023. We hope everyone will come to participate!
Skateboarding's Top Series
Skateboarding's premier series returns with four-stop global calendar. SLS has released the first details of its 2023 calendar after resuming the 2022 season. Sponsors will kick off the 2023 Championship Tournament on April 29 at Wintrust Arena in the Windy City. Now, fans will be able to watch the world's top men's and women's skaters - including the Tokyo Olympians - compete in an action-packed SLS elite competition.
The 2023 SLS season will consist of three tour events before concluding with the Super Crown World Championship. Organizers will host the first race in Chicago, with the remaining three events taking place in major international cities on three continents. More location details will be announced in the coming weeks.
- Time: April 29, 2023

In addition, the SLS will create opportunities for skaters throughout the year to join the tour with a series of new events. Skaters will be invited to multiple events throughout the year for the chance to earn a coveted spot for an upcoming event in this year's Tour Eliminator. This expanded qualification pathway creates more opportunities for aspiring skaters to advance to the next level.
