Italo is a 26-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 MegaRamp footage. In February and March 2016, he traveled from California to Florida, hitting 25 skateparks in 25 days. 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. Penarrubia's favorite trick on the MegaRamp is the Ollie 360 over the gap. "It's so sick to do that because the wind helps."
