MITCHIE BRUSCO: What's Next? | X Games | X Games

MITCHIE BRUSCO: What’s Next? | X Games | X Games

X Games – Mitchie Brusco made history at X Games Minneapolis 2019, landing the first 1260 on a skateboard. He was nonchalant about it, slowly descending the ramp, sill focused on the trick he had just landed for the first time. But it was clear from his first run that Mitchie only had the 1260 on his mind. His switch 180 over the 50-foot gap was instant evidence that he was focused on giving himself the best opportunity on the quarterpipe. His first two 1260 attempts seemed close, but he ejected near the landing. On Run 3, he locked into his spin. The 1260 almost looked easy; Brusco didn’t even have to ball up his body. He tucked his left arm and landed as casually as if he’d only spun a 360. Brusco was expressionless as his colleagues came out to the flatbottom to celebrate with him. “I didn’t feel anything, but I felt a lot,” Brusco said afterward. What followed was a media frenzy. Mitchie, Mitchie, Mitchie… on Instagram, YouTube, the national news, you name it. But this wasn’t the first time that Mitchie Brusco was in the spotlight. As a Big Air skateboarder at X Games, Mitchie has been known for pushing progression. His career at skateboarding’s forefront has been a series of firsts: landed the first 900 in a Big Air contest (2011, Brazil). Landed the first 1080 in SKB Big Air (X Games Barcelona 2013). And now, the first 1260. Even Tony Hawk was speechless. In the months that followed, Mitchie Brusco was able to reflect on his accomplishment. The Skateboard Big Air ramp is not just another ramp; it needed to be treated with respect, and Mitchie took the necessary time and practice to prepare himself for pushing the progression forward. Instead of jumping in and just going for it years ago, Mitchie backed off, proceeded with caution and seized the moment when the time was right. This is Mitchie Brusco, unlocking the 1260, another first at X Games. SUBSCRIBE ► http://xgam.es/YouTube”>http://xgam.es/YouTube X Games has been spreading the shred in action sports since 1995.

ERIC KOSTON: The State of Skateboarding | X Games | X Games

X Games – Skateboarding legend Eric Koston (@erickoston) has been a sneaker head since first visiting Japan at age 19. As a teenage skateboarder, finding affordable footwear that worked for street skateboarding was not as easy as it is today. Before the dawn of signature skate shoes, Koston and friends would search for new, old stock of Nikes to skate in. In hindsight, Koston now realizes that those teenage searches for Nikes influenced his rise through skateboarding. Beginning with eS Footwear, Koston started designing his own shoes over twenty years ago, and in the time since, has had a hand in the design process for any footwear that features the name Koston. Recently, Clinton Yates (@clintonyates) of ESPN’s Now Or Never sat down with Koston to talk skate progression, the influence of skateboarding in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and some of his favorite Nike shoes in his own personal Mt. Rushmore of Nike shoes. What Nike SB shoes does Koston back in his all-time favorite lineup? Watch the interview and learn.
