We Can’t Stop Here, This is KC, This is Malto Country!

Street League Kansas City has always been pretty much the best stop. Just the “Maltomania” vibe in that town is so damn crazy. The enthusiasm and excitement levels are genuine and the energy is real. This stop by all means offered the best skateboarding yet. Dylan Rieder was the stand out by making the finals and added a ton of speed and style by doing so. The end result was the same, Nyjah Houston won. What made this contest stand out from the others was Paul Rodriguez, Chris Cole, Luan Oliveira, and Dylan Rieder having stand out tricks back to back. They killed it! Hail Mary’s were thrown out and it will be a hard day to match. I had the best seat in the house for it all. Here are a few photos from Street League Kansas City. -ERL
