Remember the name Kyle Mack. At just 15 years old, this kid is ripping apart the snowboarding world. Once a member of the respected Burton Smalls team at 13, Mack has already proved his longevity.
The 2012 season boosted Mack to the finals at all three Dew Tour stops as well as the finals at the Burton Canadian Open, where he sealed an eighth-place finish among an ultra-talented crew of riders. Keep on the lookout for his huge backside double 1080 and smooth cab double 900, which landed him in first in the halfpipe and second in slopestyle at the Burton Junior European Open.
Mack turns 16 years old in July and he competes with riders who are all a solid four to ten years his senior. This past season Mack won the big air at the Paul Mitchell Progression Session and took second in big air and halfpipe at the O’neill Evolution in Switzerland. He was also the first athlete to land a triple cork in competition. Not too shabby.
