Athlete Bio

A 23-year-old from the skate mecca of Brazil, Italo is following in the high-flying footsteps of his fellow countrymen who know how to go big. He won Vert Ams at X Games in 2010 and has since made two X Games appearances. Though his success hasn't been stellar, the potential is definitely there. For Big Air he has 360 Ollies over the gap and is aiming to do a 720. He's also braced with 540's on the quarterpipe. Italo has a great sense of humor and a deep love for skating.

You Don't Say?

  • Italo's first X Games experience came in 2009 where he finished 5th in Vert Ams and again in 2012, when he won the armature event. However, his first official X Games appearance came in 2012, where he placed 11th in Big Air. He also placed 8th in Big Air at X Games Barcelona in 2013.
