    X-Games

    Anyone watch this? I used to back in the day - meaning Tony Hawk prime and the sexy Fabiola Da Silva. I haven't seen much over the recent years, but I marvel at what some of them can do. Much more respect to them and their talent than to the more mainstream sports.

    I agree, there are some incredibly talented people. I haven't watched them in a few years, but this makes me reminisce

    Yes! I used to love watching em back in the late 90s, early 00s. That was when extreme sports were in their prime, they are still popular but I think some of the excitement has died out a bit. I used to love skateboarding and went to the Gravity Games in Providence. Idk if you remember them but they were just like the xgames but a little smaller.
    If actions speak louder than words
    I'll be the most deafening noise you've heard.
    I'll be that ringing in your ears
    That will stick around for years.

    I don't remember if it was the very FIRST back flip, but I remember watching one of the X-Games and someone managed to pull off a back flip on a dirt bike and everyone went insane pretty much. It's moved a hell of a lot farther with other people throwing in other tricks with the back flips.

    I did watch this though.

    I remember that, it was my first X-Games I seen, I was really young and I seen him do that flip, I was amazed and excited to see it ever since.

    That jump was really epic, too.

    Not the X-Games, but being from Providence, I watched the Gravity Games back in the day when they were here. Like 10 years ago though.

    I remember when the X-games used to have inline skating, best stuff ever with the Yasutoko brothers
