Remember the name Kyle Mack. At just 15 years old, this kid ripped apart the snowboarding world by landing the first triple cork. Once a member of the respected Burton Smalls team at 13, Mack has already proved his longevity.
The 2012 season saw Mack boost to the finals at all three Dew Tour stops as well as at 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.
In 2013 Mack won the big air at the Paul Mitchell Progression Session and took second in both big air and halfpipe at the O’neill Evolution in Switzerland. He was also the first athlete to land a triple cork in competition, which he used to his advantage in the 2014 season to land on three slopestyle podiums. He also walked away with a second-place finish at The Shred Show in Canada, proving that he’s a well-rounded ripper. Look for bigger things from this young talent in the years to come.
