Much like the magnificent Iguazu Falls nearby, the four days of X Games Foz do Iguaçu were not to be missed. Between the world-class action, the passionate crowds, the tropical climate, and the ear-ringing decibel levels, overall, the event was sensation-numbing in the best ways possible.
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.
