American professional skateboarder Mitchie Brusco made history over the weekend as he landed skateboarding’s first-ever 1260 at the X Games. For a better understanding of the feat, a 1260 is three-and-a-half full revolutions.
While the crowd and commentators went absolutely wild over the trick — and rightfully so — Brusco remained fairly calm following the monumental maneuver. After the event, the 22-year-old skateboarder spoke with reporters regarding his approach to the 1260 saying, “I don’t know, it just kinda worked.”
Unbelievable. Mitchie Brusco (@Mitchiebrusco84) wrote his name in the skateboarding record books forever today when he became the first ever to successfully land a 1260. How does he feel? He’s…still processing. #XGames pic.twitter.com/1dojsOXe5P

This wasn’t Brusco’s first historic day on a skateboard, though. Back in 2011 he became the third skateboarder to nail a 900 in a Big Air contest, and in 2013 he became the second skater ever to land a 1080 on the MegaRamp.
