Street League 2013 Portland Finals – TransWorld SKATEboarding
It was another nailbiting final at Street League in Portland, Oregon yesterday. To everyone’s surprise, Nyjah got eliminated early on in the Flow Section. In the final Impact Section, it was a throwdown between Chris Cole, Ishod Wair, Luan Oliveira, and Paul Rodriguez. Amid the chaos, Shane O’Neill got a 9.9 with an insane switch 360 double flip, but he already had too many bails to be a contender. In the end, Paul’s frontside bigspin heelflip was the trick that put him in first. Cole and Ishod both needed big scores to unseat Paul, and both went for backside 360 ollie kickflips, but both bailed. This is Paul’s second career Street League win, and his first this season. Two more SLS stops left!
