The Nike SB Barcelona AM returns to Skate Agora BDN plaza skatepark in
Barcelona for the 3rd successive year, and kicks off a summer of Nike SB European skate events for 2017. Barcelona has long been the European proving ground for skaters and this year is no exception as Nike SB invites amateurs from across the globe to compete for a total prize purse of €10,000, and the overall winner invited to take part in the Berlin Open where they will skate against some of the best Pros at Nike SB’s, The Shelter.
As per previous years, the Barcelona AM is held side by side with SLS Nike SB Pro Open that features the world’s elite street skateboarders, including Shane O’Neill, Nyjah Huston and Luan Oliveira. In total up to 61 global Pros will compete for the coveted Golden Ticket straight to the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship, and for Pros currently not in SLS, the honour of securing the final two SLS Pro spots on the SLS Nike SB World Tour. The Barcelona AM and SLS Pro Open will be supported by numerous exhibitions and events held in the streets of Barcelona, celebrating the special relationship that skateboarding has with this incredible city.
