Queen Creek's Trey Wood started watching X-Games skateboard competitions when he was very young.

He got hooked immediately.

Trey quickly became an ace, and competed in the X-Games when he was just 11! Come July in Minneapolis, Wood will compete in his sixth straight X-Games, still looking for his first win.

The adrenaline rush drives him, and he won't let two broken wrists and a fractured heel suffered in the last two years get in his way.

Wood has an automatic bid for the Big Air competition and has to qualify for the Street Event for the first time this weekend in Boise, Idaho.

He's hoping to win gold, in what could be a prelude to a medal-earning performance at the 2020 Olympics.

The kid from Queen Creek is living on the edge and loving every second of it!
