Called the \"best street course ever built\" by international skateboarding announcer, Dave Duncan, this year\'s X Games 17 Street course had everyone talking. Made to resemble a city street scene, Lead Designer, Dug Ketterman, focused not only on the flow of the course but also the overall theme. The goal of the designer was to bring out the style that is so innate to street skating: creativity, as well as, transform the course setting into a real scene. The CA RampWorks crew had smoke coming out of a manhole and chimney stack, a strip of store fronts, a center piece construction zone area, loading dock, roof gaps, wall-rides, ledges, rails... you name it. California Skateparks pulled the course together with their specialty concrete work.
