After stomping the X-games Big Air, James "Woodsy" Woods takes a tour round the Planks stores and finds time in between Masterclasses to answer a few of our burning questions.

First of all congratulations, and what a win! You absolutely stomped the last run. Well all of them actually.

Thank you, I was pretty pleased to land that. And at X games, which is the biggest and best competition for me. Winning there has always been the dream.


Big Air isn’t usually your main event. The past five years you’ve only competed in Slopestyle at the X games. Why this year?

I do a lot of Big Air competitions too. They’re just a more niche version of slopestyle but at X games, the running order has always made it difficult to do both when my main focus is Slopestyle. This year, they changed it up so I mentioned to the organisers I’d be interested in competing, not expecting to necessarily be included but immediately got an invite.
