Chippa Wilson begun to speak about it, and BOOM, that’s it, ESPN, the famous channel which organizes the X-Games launched: “The Real Surf”. That’s it, the surfing is in the X-Games, but it’s not a traditional surfing competition, but a video competition. Eight professional surfers were invited to produce a video of 1 minute in length and were judged by a jury stemming from the surf industry .

So it’s through the video competition “The Real Surf”, that some of the great stars of the surf are going head to head, as their Internet audience decides on the winners!
