Twelve years ago, X Games introduced the first-ever video competition with Real Street. This year, X Games changes the game again, producing a live Real Street Best Trick competition. In lieu of the historical 60-second video part, this year’s Real Street Best Trick contest will be an all-out, 30-minute jam session taking place at an undisclosed legendary street skate spot in Southern California.
The biggest names in skating will compete, including Nyjah Huston, Yuto Horigome, Dashawn Jordan and Jamie Foy, with the single best trick taking home gold. X Games will capture Real Street Best Trick live and release the competition in its entirety as part of the X Games 2022 broadcast on ABC on July 24.
