Technically, media aren’t allowed into the X Games until tomorrow, but strings were pulled and I got a whole hour to shoot as many photos as I could. I got to check out Park, Street, and Big Air (the lights were turned off in the room with the vert ramp, but I could imagine what it looks like). The Park course looks flowy with loads of lines and the Street course looks like it was plucked out of an industrial area with actual setups instead of just good rails and ledges (but they have those, as well). During my window of shooting, skate practice was on the Park course, but I managed to get some action on the Street course with the likes of Garrett Reynolds, Van Homan, Brian Kachinsky, Dakota Roche, and Dennis Enarson.
