You’ve got 2013 Skater of the Year Ishod Wair dropping his usual hammers; the extremely underrated Paul Hart taking on the Rincon bleachers; one of the best street skaters of this generation in Chris Joslin destroying famous spots; underground fan favorite Neen Williams being included; Brazilian beast Tiago Lemos skating just as hard as you’d expect; and a couple others.
While I’m not one who typically lives in the past, Daewon Song’s entry from last year has tainted my view of X Games Real Street skateboarding. I am in no way taking away anything from any of this year’s entries; they’re full of bangers and were a true pleasure to watch.
But let us just take a moment to re-watch Song’s 2016 fan favorite winner and recognize how absurdly bonkers it truly is.
Have you collected all the pieces from your mind being blown all over the room? Song’s skating has continually defied logic (and physics for that matter), and how this didn’t actually win the gold medal last year, I do not know.
Now that we got that out of the way, again, go watch 2017’s Real Street skate edits here. Fan favorite voting is open until May 28 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
