“Last week, just prior to X Games BMX Vert, we were scheduled to post a profile video with Chilean vert sensation Coco Zurita. Coco, as many of you might know, is the very stylish vert pro that can blast a vert ramp almost better than anyone in the pro vert class right now. His style, for lack of a better description, is that of a vert version of Ruben Alcantara. And yes, it’s awesome to watch.
Unfortunately, Coco stepped down on his foot the day before X Games 17, fracturing his ankle in the process and eliminating any chance he would have of riding in X Games 17 Vert and Big Air. So there our profile sat, unused, while Coco hobbled around at X Games, unable to ride. But the video is still great, so we’re featuring it this week in a rare version of “things you missed out on at X Games 17.” Video by Shad Hopkins.” – ESPN
Dylan Pfohl dropped this quick edit of Coco Zurita shredding the Woodward half pipe. This dude has so much style. Amazing.
“Good friend of ours Coco Zurita invited Dennis Enarson and I down to Chile to hang at a local contest in Puerto Natales, from there we flew up to Santiago and stayed with Coco’s family for a week. At the end of the trip Coco and I had a demo for Vans Chile in a mall, with special guest Dennis Enarson.
Thanks Justin Kosman for the demo HD clips

“We’d been trying to coordinate this session for a while. Dirt Ron is a North County San Diego native and shreds everything in the most unlikely way imaginable. Riding pools and big bowls is on his list of weekly sessions, so when Simon Tabron and Coco Zurita were fresh off a session at Tony Hawk’s ramp, we called ’em over to the massive Carmel Valley Bowl for a meeting of minds. You can’t make this stuff up. Simon and Coco blast the pants off of the deep and end and Ron falls like a wet blanket on a hot tin roof. What? Exactly.” – Justin Kosman
Cory Nastazio, Luke Parslow, Dakota Roche, Chase Hawk, Gary Young and Coco Zurita will be at the Vans skatepark in Orange, California on April 22nd. Looks like a good time if you can make it.
