Real Women. Real Talent.


8 athletes. 4 sports. 1 winner. (Did I mention they are all Women?)

The X-Games REAL Series started in 2010 with Real Street as a way to bring the worlds of professional skateboarding contests and video together. Expanding each year, there are now a total of 6 disciplines in the series. One, added this year and going on right now, is Real Women, an all female video contest combining 4 different sports, Surfing, Skiing, Snowboarding and Skateboarding, with some of the most talented female athletes in the world. Each athlete submitted a 75-second video edit showing off their skills and showcasing their personalities.

VOTE NOW for your favorite lady, and you can help decide who wins the Fan Favorite. A panel of X-Games judges will ultimately decide the winners of the coveted medals, announced May 16-19 at the X-Games in Barcelona.
