About Coco

Chile's Francisco "Coco" Zurita stands out on the vert ramp for a number of reasons: his bike is set up like a modern street rider's machine -- no brakes -- and he blasts some of the highest airs of the entire field while riding the halfpipe like a flowing set of trails. Coco's bike control results in airs that are so stylish, he doesn't even need to do tricks to capture attention. He has moves like double tailwhips and tailwhip flairs on his trick list, and Coco is a favorite for the crowd and his competitors alike. He earned his first X Games medal -- Vert silver -- at Foz do Iguacu 2013.

  • XG Austin 2016 will be his 10th appearance. Best finish: Foz 2013 Vert, silver.
  • 1 of only 2 X Games medalists from Chile (Javier Villegas, MTX)
  • First rider to pull a triple tailwhip in vert competition (July 2007, Cleveland, OH).
  • 1 of 2 Vert riders competing brakeless in Austin (Simon Tabron)
  • Has his own original web series dubbed "GTTNSIDEWAYS."
