Q: What’s Street League all about?
Street League is a contest circuit founded by Rob Dyrdek in 2010. It’s grown into a large scale contest similar to X-games and draws excited fans and harsh critics alike. The format of the judging makes it easy for a non-skateboarder to gain a small amount of understanding when it comes to trick names and who the skaters in the contest are. The structured feel of the contests may seem pretty lame to your typical cool guy but at the core of it all, the tricks that go down are still pretty sick. Check it out with an open mind and form your own opinion.
Q: Can I watch it live from my computer or TV?
Yes. The live webcast will be up on StreetLeague.com starting at 1pm EST on Sunday or watch on Fox Sports 1 (including the Fox Sports GO app).
