Qualify to Skate at X Games Minneapolis 2017
This year X Games will be giving skateboarders everywhere the opportunity to compete in Minneapolis by using the Podium Skate App. Podium Skate is a new app created by CA Productions that allows users to upload their footage and be scored by our pro judges for a chance to be invited to the live contest.
Here's how it works: Users upload one clip that includes their best 30 seconds of footage. All submissions will be scored and ranked by Podium app users. From there, the top submissions will then be judged by our panel of pro judges and the top three entries will be officially qualified and will go directly to the finals in Minneapolis. This will be the only way to compete in this year's X Games Am contest without an invite.

- Video submission open from 6.15.17 - 6.29.17
