asmith photos: X Games Street League LA Warms Ups

Words and Photos: Aaron Smith

I headed over to the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night expecting to shoot the X Games big air. Turns out my 45 minute, 13 mile commute into LA needed to be doubled because the big air was an additional 45 minutes away. Slightly bummed not to see some insane gravity defying shit, I headed over to the street section to see if anyone was still skating. To my luck a few people were. The course looks pretty sick and seems like these guys have it figured out. Tomorrow’s contest should be a good one! Here’s some photo from the X Games Street League warm ups.
