On Saturday, Exposition Park hosted the first day of Air + Style, a music and art festival-slash-snowboarding competition organized and hosted by snowboarder/ skateboarder Shaun White. This year, Air + Style featured a 16-story tall snowboard jump, which was used a vehicle for 24 snowboarders from around the world to soar through the sky.

There were also two stages at the Coliseum for musical entertainment, including rappers A$AP Ferg, J. Cole, and Action Bronson, and L.A. natives Haim.

You've still got time to head down for day two of Air + Style: today's musical lineup includes rappers Migos and Danny Brown, followed by a set from headliners Incubus.

If you'd rather just catch the action from the comfort of your couch, the snowboarding competition is being live-streamed here. Here's a preview of what to expect:
