As we head into X Games Foz Do Iguaçu, Brazil, the stars are aligning for one of the greatest skateboarding contests to hit the Southern Hemisphere -- let alone the world.

Luan Oliviera hopes to get on top in Street League Skateboarding, as does Leticia Bufoni in Women's Skateboard Street, leading the way to epic finals. Here are some of Brazil's top skaters and who to look for in X Games Foz.
