2019 was a good year, especially for Jack Olson. He turned pro, not once, not twice but three times! To celebrate we lurked through his instagram and put together a mega mix of the clips that went straight to the gram.

A recap of 2019 and the collaborations with Diamond Supply Co.
Tim Cisilino managed to get a big break. He grew up in sleepy Walnut Creek, an inland Californian town not far from Oakland in the north of the state. Cisilino was skating with Corey Duffel among others when he decided to move to Tucson, Arizona.
Highly regarded Pro skater Aaron Suski had by coincidence also moved to Tucson, and that synchronicity or serendipity or what- have-you led to one of an early breaks in the game: filming for Emerica’s seminal Stay Gold in 2010.
One thing led to another, and now Tim works at Emerica, lives in Long Beach and films some of the gnarliest skateboarding going down at this moment in time.
This is the heaviest Videofolio of them all – check it out above!

Mitchie Brusco takes the #2 spot on the X Games Top Ten list. The 900 was first landed on a skateboard 20 years ago (at X Games, of course). The trick remains so difficult that fewer than 10 people have done it at X Games. Then came the 1080; you can count the people who have landed that trick on one hand. Now we have the 1260.
–Mitchie Brusco landed the world’s first 1260 on the quarterpipe during Run 3 of Skateboard Big Air. He crashed attempting the trick in his first two runs, and that came after crashing on it twice at X Games Shanghai. He made it look easy in his 5th overall attempt at X Games. The 1260 was part of a line that included a switch 180 over the 50-ft. gap. Despite the world’s first 1260, Mitchie took silver.
He now owns 10 X Games medals total. And 1260 bragging rights.
Misugu Okamoto takes #6 on the X Games Top Ten list. Misugu Okamoto absolutely crushed the field at X Games Minneapolis 2019, just as she’s been doing all year: The 13-year-old has won five straight major park contests.And she’s not just dominating, she’s revolutionizing women’s park skateboarding and leading a legion of teens and tweens who have completely changed the discipline.
Her victory in her rookie appearance makes her the second-youngest gold medalist in X Games history. Welcome to the Top Moments of 2019 Misugu!
Nyjah Huston takes #7 on the X Games Top Ten list. Nyjah Huston had already earned consecutive X Games Skateboard Street gold when he prepped for his final run — the final run of the entire contest — at X Games Shanghai. But he wasn’t even on the podium after Run 2 in China. He needed to crush his last pass. And of course he did, because delivering under pressure is exactly what Nyjah does.
He finished with an emphatic claim, too, raising his arms in triumph when he nailed his ender, the nollie flip noseblunt slide. There also was relief, because he nearly hung up on the trick. The Shanghai victory was his 10th X Games Street gold and 11th XG gold overall (2012 Real Street). He went on to add another gold and a silver at X Games Minneapolis, and he now has 18 total XG medals.
