For the first time in more than a decade, X Games will not grace the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Instead, X Games is heading to Austin, Texas, to start a new chapter. But before that, skate photographer Bryce Kanights thought it would only be appropriate to look back on the many years of skateboarding that X Games brought to Los Angeles.

X Games 10 brought X Games to Los Angeles, with an actual Skateboard Street contest outside of the Staples Center. Here, Paul Rodriguez kickflips over a hedge in July 2004.
