Leticia Bufoni Wins Gold in Street at X Games LA
In April, Bufoni won gold in Women's Skateboard Street in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, and she won the Real Women video contest in Barcelona in May. "This is the best year of my life," Bufoni said.
On Thursday, the win didn't come easy on a Street League course that favored more technical street skaters. Bufoni is better known for her flowing surf style in bowls and transition, and she prefers bigger rails when skating street. But she was the top qualifier in prelims, posting the only score in the 90s of the day, and she made the most of quarterpipe features and an A-frame rail to attack at top speed during finals.
"I don't really skate ledges and manny pads so I had to do some different tricks, but it was fun," Bufoni said. "I think Lacey's killing it. She's one of the best girls out there. I think the difference was because I skated everything and skated the rail."
