2012 X Games: Ishod Wair (2:11)

Ishod Wair discusses X Games, the new Nike video, skating Philly. (2:11)

Ishod Wair, the Hamilton, N.J., native and the Garden State's hottest pro skateboarder, is on a tear through the streets and contests of today. With a breakout part in Real Skateboards' "Since Day One" video, a style reminiscent of Julian Stranger and a dash of lanky-tech, Wair will be at the top of the heap for years to come. ESPN.com put Wair in front of a camera and got his thoughts on the X Games, Nike and skating with his homes in the streets of Philadelphia.

Watch the X Games Street contest Sunday, July 1 from 3:00 P.M. -- 5:00 P.M. (ET) on ESPN2
