Canadian Sebastien Toutant took the mens slopestyle title on Sunday afternoon, to add to the silver medal he got in the Snowboard Big Air on Friday.

"I had no expectations, I just came here to have fun and be with all of my friends at my first X Games," said the 18-year-old Montreal native. "Just to be invited was crazy. After the Big Air, when I got silver, I was thinking I might be able to do really well in Slopestyle as well. I put it down and made it happen and it is a dream come true."

The man they call, "Seb Toots" executed a Cab 270, a front 270 on the down rail, front board bagel on the rainbow rail, 50/50 backside-rodeo out on the canon box, Cab 12 double on the first jump, front 10 double on the second jump and back 10 double on the last jump to score a 93.00.

"I was pretty excited up there," said McMorris. "I put it down on the last run, I was really nervous, but I knew I had practiced the run a lot and that I had it. As soon as I landed the second jump I felt like I had pretty much done it."

The lone American on the podium was Californian Tyler Flanagan, who despite struggling in practice, scored an 82.66 on his second run to grab the bronze.

"Unfortunately, I did not have the best practice," confessed Flanagan. "I didn't land the last jump, the backside 12, once - I fell on it every time. I was really nervous at the top, but I started my run off well, pulled it together, and I'm super stoked."
