Pamela Rosa
Brazil / Street Skateboard

Pamela Rosa won X Games Oslo 2016 Women’s Street, becoming the youngest champion in the discipline (age 16) and making X Games Austin a repeat. The golds came after earning silver at both Austin 2014 & 2015; she’s one of the most consistent skaters in the women’s game. Rosa is shy, and the attention she’s garnering is a bit intimidating. But competing sure doesn’t intimidate her, and she has a nice bag of flip tricks, including her favorite, a backside double flip.

Leticia Bufoni
Brasil / Street Skateboard

Leticia is a corporate-backed rock star, one of the best-known skateboarders in the world. A skate rat at heart, she blazed a trail for Brazilian women, riding a skateboard when no one thought she should. Until recently Bufoni was considered one of the best contest skaters in the discipline, with 6 straight medals in X Games Women’s SKB Street and a bag of burly, jaw-dropping moves. The three-time gold medalist’s XG podium streak ended in 2014, but she has the skills to start a new one. Bufoni was the first woman to grace the cover of The Skateboard Mag (Oct. 2015) and the first woman on the Nike skate team. She has a huge online presence, with 1.2 million Instagram followers checking an account that’s equal parts skin and skate.

Dashawn Jordan
USA / Street Skateboard

Winning Tampa Am in 2016, the biggest contest in amateur skateboarding, helped propel Dashawn Jordan to the big leagues after spending years as a podium regular on the Damn Am series. He says 2017 was all about proving to himself that he can now hang with his favorite skaters. After being a late edition to X Games Minneapolis in 2017, he made his name known at the X Games by finishing 5th in his X Games debut.

Yuto Horigome
Japan / Street Skateboard

Yuto Horigome’s rapid rise in the last few months makes him one of the most exciting stories in SKB Street entering X Games Minneapolis 2017. A late addition to the field after stellar podium performances in Street League and Dew Tour in 2017, his first major pro level contests, the Japanese skater finished 9th at Minneapolis. Nyjah Huston and O’Neill, his Nike SB teammates, both say he’s the biggest threat and the one to watch.

Kelvin Hoefler
Brazil / Street Skateboard

Kelvin Hoefler might be the person most deserving of a Skateboard Street invitation. The Brazilian skater took 7th in an X Games Foz qualifier event in 2013 but missed the cut, then received an outright invitation in 2016 after taking wins at major contests all around the world, including Street League, Dew Tour, and the Kimberly Diamond Cup, but had to skip it due to a leg injury. Now back to full strength, he says he’s been dreaming of competing at X Games ever since he was 8 years old, skating a box and rail setup in his mother’s kitchen and garage in Sao Paolo and pretending he was Bob Burnquist. All that work seems to have paid off at Minneapolis 2017 where he won gold.

Jagger Eaton
USA / Street Skateboard

With one of the best attitudes on the ramp, 17-year old Jagger Eaton is the youngest athlete to ever compete at X Games (11 in 2012). Jagger showed his true colors on the Big Air ramp, dedicating his run to his brother, Jett who wasn’t able to compete that year. He finished 4th in Big Air twice in 2013. Improving on his Skateboard Street Ams bronze in 2016, Jagger won gold in the same event this past year at Minneapolis.

Felipe Gustavo
Brazil / Street Skateboard

Felipe Gustavo is a ledge assassin, destroying anything that comes his way with speedy, precise and stylish ledge combos. The Brazilian has been a mainstay of skateboard coverage since he won Tampa Am in 2007. He may have only been in the contest because his father sold the family car to get him there, but now he’s here for good, having turned pro in 2013 and establishing himself as one of the best skaters around.

Shane O´Neill
Australia / Street Skateboard

Shane is an Aussie ripper known for video game-like technical combos, a soft-spoken demeanor and gentle personality. He got on Nike at the age of 14 and has been strategic about choosing sponsors ever since. His measured approach to skateboarding has allowed him to keep progressing at a steady clip to the point where his technical and overall skating abilities are virtually unmatched.

Nyjah Huston
USA / Street Skateboard

There’s no way to exaggerate Nyjah Huston’s place in street skateboarding: He’s the most important athlete in the discipline. The 22-year-old wins most contests he enters, including 6 of the past 7 X Games Street comps he’s entered. He’s medaled in his past 11 XG Street starts; no one else approaches that success. A silver medal, just .33 points behind Ryan Decenzo on the rainy course at XG Austin ’16, left him fired up and ready for redemption (it was his first time off the top spot since 2012, with the exception of the XG Munich ’13 event he missed due to injury). Hot to start 2017, with two Street League victories and a win at the Red Bull Hartlines event.

We wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.
