Going into New Jersey Chaz Ortiz was the only one who had qualified for the SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship on points alone. So far, he’s finished 5th at Tampa Pro, 4th in Barcelona, 3rd in Los Angeles, and 5th in New Jersey. He has never won a SLS stop but his great skating all tour long assures he has what it takes.
