I love watching the skateboard competitions. Even stuff like motocross, which I'm not very into, is very fun to watch during the X Games.

I was interested in the X-Games when I was a teenager. Now I just go skate; I don't even watch skate videos anymore I like how they cleaned up the street skate course though. It used to be sh*t back in the day. In 97, it was like a 15 stair set for the best trick contest. Wtf is someone gonna do on that? Jamie Thomas won with a backside 50 haha.

Do they get paid to skate in the X Games?

Cause if they do...they're not Soul Skaters


That Brink.... I remember that movie. My friend and I make fun of rollerbladers by calling them "brink" because of that.

No they dont get paid to be in the X games. I think the winners get some cash.
I hope Shaun White Lands a 1080 because he will deffenitly pwn skateboarding forever.

Dude that was sick! His shoes flew off his feet with enough velocity to decapitate someone! I was sure he wasn't going to be walking after that but he sure proved me and thousands of others wrong.

Anyone else love how the coverage is set up this year? I don't know how it is for everyone else with similar services but on Dish Network channel 100 is the official X Games "portal" and it simultaneously shows coverage from all the events in case you missed something. It has a channel for the live feed then it shows re-runs of the stuff that already happened. It's really handy. I remember last year I missed so much shit just because they like to channel skip.

I don't know how he landed that his spine and head didn't absorb the majority of the impact because he hit so fucking hard. But he's quite lucky that he didn't die, regardless of how it happened.
