8. Italo Penarrubia jumps into a giant quarterpipe from the stands
We all know that extreme sports athletes are a little crazy — well, maybe a lot crazy. But what Italo Penarrubia did at the X Games this year just proves it. The X Games is the place to show how high you can jump and how far you can soar. The makers of the courses do an amazing job to create ramps and pipes that are so extreme even the best of the best get nervous. Apparently, none of these were high enough for Big Air skateboarder Italo Penarrubia.
Penarrubia decided to jump out of the stands several stories above the competition floor and land on the quarter pipe below.
This Brazilian is no stranger to danger. He has been to six X Games in his time. When he isn’t giving the fans a show on the big stage he can be seen shredding with the original GOAT of Big Air Bob Burnquist.
Penarrubia didn’t have the showing he was looking for in The Real Cost Skateboard Big Air
Final contest finishing in seventh, but he certainly was able to leave a mark in the minds of fans with this daredevil trick from the upper deck.
