Surfing is back in the X Games (kind of). This year, beginning in Brazil, the X Games audience will get to see the best airs and barrels, hacks and power turns from the likes of Jordy Smith, Gabriel Medina, 11-time world champ Kelly Slater and five other big name surfers, as they contest for an X Games Gold Medal. The twist: the action will be packed into 90-second video clips and part of the inaugural “Real Surf” presented by Oakley contest.
Nearly two-dozen skiers were on hand for the first-ever contest, but really, the Tanner Hall Invitational, held at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort, was just a massive jam session between friends and fellow stylists – and it was just one of three celebrations of skiing going on across the country, which included a Chinese Downhill and the Dumont Cup.
This Saturday, style will be the focus at Sierra-at-Tahoe. Eleven-time X Games medalist Tanner Hall will be on hand with a couple dozen of the most stylish freeskiers in the world for the first-ever Tanner Hall Invitational. With the event less than 48 hours away, we decided it was a good time to catch up with Tanner to talk about his first season back from injury and to get some insights on his signature event.
