My friend and I took a road trip to Austin, TX to go watch the X Games!!
My brother grew up as a skateboard fanatic which led me to grow up going to skateparks with him. So going to see a professional skateboarding competition was something that I always wanted to go to one day.
I got to see many skateboarders that my brother grew up talking about when we were younger which was really cool.
We took a picture with the Big Air ramp. Can you believe that the tallest drop is 88 feet high?!? Now imagine going down that with a freaking skateboard!!
Me posing with the X of X Games… guys I had to document this moment haha
I was very very excited!
Alexa and I got to go up this tower.
We were able to see the whole view of the X Games from up top!
I even got to take a selfie with the Big Air while I was up there.
Also we got to watch people practice way up in the air! Which was awesome.
Out of all the competitions that day my favorite by far was the Big Air skateboarding competition.
(In the photo the little black dot in the air is actually Bob Burnquist who won the Gold Medal in the Big Air competition)
Bob Burnquist is one of three athletes that have competed in every X Games summer competition. He has won the most medals in X Games History (27 medals)!!
Congrats to him and all the athletes that competed!!
I had such a great time, I would love to go again next year!
with so much love,
