In its third year running, the X Games Real Street contest was a barn-burner in 2012. Starting with a bracket of 16 skaters with one-minute video parts each, the bar was raised higher than ever. It came down to amazing parts by Aaron "Jaws" Homoki, Manny Santiago, Collin Provost and Nyjah Huston. With fans from around the world voting on the top spot, Provost was the 2012 Fan Favorite in Real Street, with Huston taking the gold from the judges.
