A little over 10 years ago, Ryan and I started attending X Games events as they started to really get a lot of things right, like the course, the invited skaters, and the format. We've been attending as spectators ever since, watching the evolution of their big event. This year, we're pleased to announce that we're working with X Games and ESPN as the skateboarding organizers for the Men’s and Women’s Street and Park disciplines. For the next three years, we'll be mixing skateboard business and pleasure with our friends at ESPN, as we all continue to help evolve their skateboarding events. This year, X Games is in Austin, Texas starting June 5th.
I dug through my photo archives for some memories from X Games in the mid-2000's. I'm looking forward to how the next decade will shape up with The Boardr and X Games teaming up. From top to bottom, left to right: Andrew Reynolds, Bryan Herman, Lauren Perkins, Nyjah Huston, Tony and Riley Hawk, Dave Duncan and Ryan Sheckler, Elissa Steamer, Jake Brown and Ryan Clements, and Lauren Perkins. It's amazing to think how awesome everyone in these photos has become since then, even though they were already sick at the time. Thanks to ESPN for having us on board. We'll see you in Austin in June.
