After the Skateboarding Big Air contest at X Games Minneapolis 2017, Bob Burnquist announced his retirement from X Games on live tv to a very stunned crowd and action sports community,

Leading into the X Games, there was no indication that Burnquist had even considered this ending of his X Games chapter.

Tyler Tate of T Squared Action Sports sat down with Burnquist to inquire about the timing of the announcement and learn about what his next chapter would be.

In one of the final things that Burnquist would ever do at the X Games, it was all about the fans as he spent over two hours signing autographs.
