Men’s skateboard competition is one of the more followed action sports right now. Mitchie Brusco is the one to watch out for as he grabbed a gold in X Games 2018 Big Air competition. Brusco spoke to OZY ahead of the competition crediting skydiving for his improved skateboarding.
“My spatial awareness and overall awareness has been challenged so much,” he said. “Getting on a mega ramp or spinning a different way on a vert ramp—those things just started to make sense.”
