This isn’t the Lone Star State anymore. With Austin X Games in full swing, some of the brightest rising stars in action sports are coming together to stand out as individuals while also setting the tone for a whole new generation of young athletes.

The bunch is arguably led by Tom Schaar, 16, who was the first to land a 1080 (three full rotations) on a skateboard. He has been strutting his stuff in Skateboard Big Air and Skateboard Park, with a gold, silver and three bronze X Games medals to his name, the first of which he won at 14 years young.

Here are a few more must-watch young masters in Austin and on the rest of the summer circuit.

Discipline: Skateboard Street

X File: X Games Austin 2016 Skateboard Amateurs bronze medalist, Eaton already boasts five X Games appearances, where he has competed with the pros in Skateboard Big Air since 2012.

“I can’t believe I’ve been competing at the X Games for 4 years now,” Jagger told GrindTV. “I’ve done Big Air for two years, Street for two years and it never gets old. I enjoy this event every time I come and I’m so thankful that they keep inviting me because I never want to stop coming!”

Details: Beating Nyjah Huston’s record for being the youngest-ever X Games participant, Eaton started everything early, taking lessons at age four from dad Geoff, who is the founder of the skateboarding school Kids That Rip.

Poppy Starr Olsen, 16

Woods says his favorite thing about this year’s X Games Austin is "seeing all the new tricks everyone is bringing and seeing the stuff I ride in a cool location.” Oh, and food. “I’m also always stoked for any of the BBQ spots in Austin — they’re ALL good.”

Details: Grew up in the tiny town of Queen Creek, Arizona. He’s a whole new man: Wood grew four inches and gained 35 pounds last year.
