CategoryFreestyle Move of the Year
Date2012
LocationVenezuela
Description

Gollito invented the move in 2011 and performed it first in competition in Fuerte. He named the move PASKO. Like many other moves invented by Gollito, this move will see freestyle move to another level again. I believe we will see many double freestyle moves completely in the air in the future.

CommentBest move I saw this year in freestyle.
