It's been about two months since X Games descended on its new home city of Austin, Texas, and in the time since, summer humidity has ground outdoor activities to a halt in the hot Texas town. That ended last week with the return of the fourth annual Aqua Olympics, which includes BMX lake jumping as well as an assortment of outdoor activities hosted by the creators of the Fun Fun Fun Fest. XGames.com's contributing photographer Sandy Carson was on hand to capture the action. Here, participants prepare to hit the water.
