The X Games are bailing out of L.A. next year ... for the first time in a decade ... and pro skater Nyjah Huston tells TMZ, he really hopes organizers have a change of heart.
Long story short -- X Games couldn't agree on a new deal to keep the contest in L.A. for the 2014 event -- and are now deciding between Chicago, Detroit, Austin and Charlotte, NC.
Huston -- an X Games gold medalist who honed his skills in So Cal -- was at the Newport Film Festival for his flick "The Motivation" when he opened up about next year's big move.
Nyjah says he'll compete in the games no matter where they end up -- but there are 2 cities he thinks would make good replacements.
