Samarria Brevard
USA / Street Skateboard

A skater’s skater, everyone else on the course wants her to do well, and that happened in 2017, when she earned her first X Games medal (silver). The 23-year-old is one of the most humble (and powerful) skaters on the scene, and her moment to shine is near. She tre flipped a 12- stair during the Ryan Sheckler Foundation event (May 2017) and she was one of 3 girls on the King of the Road tour (premiere June 2017). She’s an avid reader and never takes a trip without a book (paper, of course).

Lacey Baker
USA / Street Skateboard

At 14, Lacey became one of the youngest X Games medalists ever when she earned Women’s Skateboard Street bronze. Today, she’s a full-time graphic designer who has kept her skills sharp enough to earn X Games medals. Baker’s assortment of creative lines and flip tricks make her tough to beat, and the video part she dropped in 2013 is heralded as one of the best female parts ever. Baker turned pro in 2014, and was added to the coveted Nike SB team in April of 2017.

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.

Ryan Sheckler
USA / Street Skateboard

In 2003, Ryan Sheckler (13 yrs. 7 mos.) became the youngest gold medalist in X Games history. After a three-year medal drought, Shecks earned his 7th (bronze) at Austin in 2015. He’s been busy filming ever since, including a much-hyped appearance skateboarding alongside Leticia Bufoni in Justin Bieber’s video for “What Do You Mean?,” which has more than 160 million YouTube views since it was released. Sheckler’s stance is regular and his sponsors include Plan B, Indy, Etnies, Grizzly, CCS, Nixon, Oakley and Red Bull.

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.

Mathilde Gremaud
Switzerland / Ski Big Air

An alternate at XG Aspen 2017, Switzerland’s Mathilde Gremaud is on the roster for both Slopestyle and Big Air in Norway. She deserves to be. The only rookie on the roster, Gremaud, 17, has been coming on strong in 2017 and has landed on the podium at four World Cups between slopestyle and Big Air. She won Big Air at the February World Cup in Quebec City with a rightside rodeo 900. She also finished 3rd at the most recent World Cup in Silvaplana, SUI.

Julia Marino
USA/ Snowboard Slopestyle & Big Air

Julia “Jules” Marino is a young member of the U.S. Snowboarding Pro Slopestyle Team who will make her debut at X Games Aspen in 2017. One of two women currently landing a Cab double underflip with regularity, Jules is on the come-up. Originally a skier, this 19-year-old out of Westport, CT, started snowboarding when she broke a ski in the trees and had to ride a board the rest of the vacation. Winner of the Big Air at Fenway event in 2016, Jules is no stranger to the big stage.

Henrik Harlaut
Sweden / Ski Slopestyle & Big Air

This three-time XG Ski Big Air gold medalist (Aspen 2013, 2014 and Oslo 2016) is an innovative jumper with an irrepressible personality. The Swede has the most Ski Big Air gold in history. Known for his nose-butter takeoffs, Henrik throws some of the most creative tricks in skiing. He’s no slouch on the slopestyle course, either. He recently won the Dec. 2016 Dew Tour (Breckenridge, CO) event and owns X Games Slopestyle silver. He also took second at the World Cup South Korea Olympic test event in mid-February 2016. He competes in both Big Air and Slopestyle at XG Aspen 2017.

Mark McMorris
Canada / Snowboard Slopestyle & Big Air

With immense talent and a healthy dose of charisma, Canadian Mark McMorris has been one of snowboarding’s leading men since taking gold in XG Slopestyle and Big Air in 2012. He repeated the feat in 2015, becoming the second snowboarder in history to earn double gold at a single event. At XG Aspen 2014, he slammed his torso into a rail and broke a rib during his final Slopestyle run. He still earned silver. He recovered just enough — and just in time — for the Winter Olympics, where he landed what he called a “dream run” but settled for bronze. But life is good. At 22, McMorris has nine XG medals, snowboards for money, dates pro surfer Coco Ho and lives in a SoCal home that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Max Parrot
Canada / Snowboard Slopestyle & Big Air

With two gold in less than 24 hours at XG Aspen 2014, Max emerged from the shadows of fellow Canadian stars Mark McMorris and Sebastien Toutant. Parrot became only the second man to win both Snowboard Big Air and Slopestyle at the same X Games (McMorris). The 21-year-old Quebecois added Big Air silver in 2015 and Big Air gold at X Games Aspen 2016, bringing his XG medal total to five. Max is dedicated, driven and practices longer and harder than perhaps anyone at X Games. The second person to land a quad, Max stuck a quadruple Cab underflip in April of 2015. He won the Fenway Park Big Air comp on Feb. 11.

Kai Mahler
Switzerland / Ski Slopestyle

Switzerland’s Kai Mahler is a three-time XG Aspen Big Air medalist (2 silver, 1 bronze). Known for his stylie spins, Mahler hasn’t jumped on the triples bandwagon (although he can do them) and prefers to throw creative doubles like the switch double Misty 1440. A 2014 Winter Olympian, Mahler also holds his own on the slopestyle course; he finished 16th in the discipline in Sochi. Finished 5th in snowy conditions in Big Air at XG Aspen 2016.

Marcus Kleveland
Norway / Snowboard Slopestyle & Big Air

Kleveland’s older sister put him on a snowboard at age 3, and he found much of his early trick inspiration from playing video games. After watching videos of fellow Norwegian rider Torstein Horgmo, Marcus attempted and landed his first double corks when he was 11. His first triple cork 1440 came at 13, setting a record as the youngest rider to land a triple cork. On November 5, 2015, after seeing videos of Billy Morgan and Max Parrot land the first quad corks, he became the third (and youngest) rider to land a quad, making a backside quad 1800 seem almost effortless on Stubai Glacier in Austria.

Giulia Tanno
Switzerland / Ski Slopestyle & Big Air
Kelly Sildaru
Estonia / ski Slopestyle & Big Air

Sildaru, just 13 yrs., 11 mos and 88 pounds when she took gold at XG Aspen 2016 in the women’s Ski Slopestyle competition, is a force. In Aspen, she logged the highest score of the comp during her first run (93.00), and it held up as former X Games gold medalists like Tiril Sjastad Christiansen and Emma Dahltstrom, as well as 2014 Olympic gold medalist Dara Howell, made pass after pass. By winning gold she became the youngest gold medalist at a winter event, topping the record set by Chloe Kim in 2015 (and Kim broke a record that had stood for 15 years). She is the second youngest gold medalist in X Games history (behind Ryan Sheckler, who was 13 when he won Skateboard Park gold in 2003). Is also the first Estonian X Games medalist.

James Woods
UK / Ski Slopestyle & Big Air

A “dry slope” kid from Great Britain, Woods grew up skiing on artificial turf out in the “moors,” as he likes to describe them. Great Britain’s most popular freeskier, Woods turned heads when he netted bronze after qualifying No. 1 as an XG Aspen rookie in 2013. A good overall season in 2015 saw “Woodsy” finish 4th in the AFP rankings for slopestyle and take another X Games top-5. He had another good performance at X Games Aspen 2016, finishing 4th in Slopestyle.

Anna Gasser
Austria / Snowboard Slopestyle & Bir Air

Anna Gasser is a 23-year-old Austrian who has been snowboarding for just five years. She went from the Austrian National Gymnastics Team to Austrian Olympic Team in a brand new sport: slopestyle, where she finished 10th, not landing her runs. At her first X Games in 2015, she finished 5th. It’s that flipping background that made her a natural, including landing her first Cab double backflip 180 (Nov. 2013).

Jamie Anderson
Usa / Snowboard Slopestyle & Big Air

The most decorated rider in X Games Slopestyle history, Jamie owns 11 medals, including 4 gold, and she recently added her fifth silver at XG Aspen 2016 despite breaking her collarbone in December. She won gold in slopestyle’s Olympic debut in 2014 and has never missed the podium when competing in XG Slopestyle. Her results prove her unparalleled consistency, and her riding is authoritative and stylish. She was the first female snowboarder in history to land a 1080 (Nine Queens, 2015), but it’s what she does off snow that shows her true spirit. This tree-hugging (literally), ohm-chanting, yoga-loving, moon-cycle-observing, go-green goddess considers snowboarding a soul sport.
