Mitchie Brusco

Mitchie started skateboarding at three and debuted at X Games in 2011 as a 14-year-old kid. Since then, he’s won 10 medals overall and at X Games 2019 wrote his name in the record books when he became the first skateboarder to land the 1260. That’s 3 and a half rotations in the air before landing.

 

He has spent over 100 hours in iFLY wind tunnels and credits flying with helping him excel at skateboarding. Flying is what he considers his secret sauce. In his own words: “My spatial awareness has been challenged so much. Spending time in the wind tunnel flying helps me understand how my body moves through the air and this training helps me the second I step back on a skateboard.”

 

Fun fact: Mitchie is an avid gamer and streams on Twitch as m_tricky.
