Day two wrapped with huge crowds as America’s Navy Skateboard Big Air took center stage and five of the sports best athletes fought windy conditions to prove who could show the best style, creativity and amplitude on massive ramp. At just 14-years-old, Tom Schaar claimed his first-ever gold with the night’s most impressive run – a memorable 720 over the gap into a 900 on the quarterpipe – earning him a score of 89.00.

As the second youngest gold medalist in X Games history, he beat out Big Air legend Bob Burnquist, who as most decorated X Games athlete in history with 27 total medals, added a silver to his collection with score of 88.00. Edgard Pereira rounded out the podium with a bronze-earning score of 87.00.
