In May 2014 he made a name for himself when he qualified in the top spot in the first annual Monster Energy Street League Pro Open in Los Angeles. His performance that day secured him a spot on the tour. From there he had a great rookie season, in which he qualified for the finals at each stop and was in seventh place heading into the Super Crown championship. He finished in 5th place at the Super Crown, ahead of Paul Rodriguez, Luan Oliveira and Shane O'Neill.
He was the 7th best skater on the tour overall with an average trick score of 7 and his highest scoring trick was an 8.7. Now that he's a bit more seasoned and knows what to expect at each stop don't be surprised if he takes it up a few notches in 2015 and inches closer to making an appearance at the winner's podium. Having just turned Pro for Flip, it's safe to say he is on his way.
In 2013 he was electrifying in Street League, placing second in three stops and winning his first stop ever in Munich, Germany, and later the Super Crown championship. 2014 wasn't a good year for Cole in Street League, he placed 9th overall and his 7th place showing at the Monster Energy Pro Open was his best. Despite placing 14th in Chicago and 10th in Los Angeles he had an average trick score of 7.7 and his highest scored trick was an 8.4. He didn't make it to the Super Crown but is specifically the type of person who can bounce back from a down year, because he knows the Street League format well and knows precisely how to skate in order to win the contest.
