X Games 17 Real Street Winners

Aug 05, 2011

X Games 17 hosted Real Street for the second year in a row and the competition was so epic, Real Street might just turn into the biggest skateboarding event ever.

Real Street Rules!

Just in case you don’t know yet, Real Street is this crazy skateboarding event where all these pro skateboarders make a cool video of all their styles and tricks on the street. A panel of legendary skateboarders, like Tony Hawk, then judges the videos and the winners get some serious bling bling.

Silas Baxter-Neal won the gold medal in X Games 17 Real Street and he was awarded $50,000 for his awesome video. Silas is a 27-year-old hippy from Eugene, Oregon. He specializes in long rail slides and kick flips.

Second place and $25,000 goes to Ryan Decenzo, a 25 year old skater from Vancouver BC. This Canadian likes to do grinds on depth defying ledges and his best trick is the frontside flip.

Daewon Song won the bronze and $15,000 with his Real Street video. Daewon is one of the older dudes on the scene. He is 35 and from Gardena, California. He is known for his speed and balance. He owns his own skateboard company called Almost Skateboards and you might have had the chance to play his character in Tony Hawk video games.

Brandon Westgate won the fan favorite award and $10,000. Brandon is 22 years old and he likes to keep a low profile in his hometown Wareham, Massachusetts where he is a full time student in college.
