X Games 2014 Course and Arrival in Austin

On Sunday after adidas Skate Copa ATL, we drove straight from Atlanta to Austin where we arrived at around midnight to get to work on X Games Austin this week. I've got a few photos of the course and our short night out last night in downtown Austin. It's going to be a week of ripping rolling and top quality chill time in this fun city and skateboard shindig that includes a show with Kanye, Mac Miller, The Flaming Lips, and more. I hope you're in Austin, Texas this week.
