Halfpipe specialist Louie Vito is climbing the ranks of the snowboarding scene and is speeding up on the heels of Shawn White for performing the most radical vertical moves. Five years ago, Louie's Backside 1080 at the Australian Open was the first time any snowboarder had landed this move in competition. Now Louie is amongst the top 10 snowboarders in the world.

Gymnastics Gung Ho

Louie was born in Columbus, Ohio and raised in Bellefontaine where he practiced his snowboarding moves on Mad River Mountain. But Louie can probably thank his parents for getting him into gymnastics which developed the main skills that helped him excel in the high flying aerials he is most known for today on the snowboading scene.

Everyone knows that Louie won his first two consecutive championships at the Australia Open because of his Backside  1080 specialty.
