About Italo

Italo is a 25-year-old Brazilian and a bona fide FOBB (Friend of Bob Burnquist). In 2015 he moved to the U.S. and stayed at Burnquist's long enough to bag plenty of mega ramp footage for a part that he plans to release prior to X Games Austin 2016. In February and March 2016, he traveled from California to Florida, hitting 25 skateparks in 25 days. The project will air this August in Brazil. The 2010 X Games Vert Ams winner, he's made four official XG appearances. He has medal potential in Big Air and he hopes to land a 540 body jar on the quarterpipe, which he has done at Burnquist's place.

  • 2015) in Big Air.
