Louie Vito Gets Up In USA Today

by The Editors on December 11, 2008

Vitox-1The nations newspaper gets the details on how snowboarder Louie Vito added two feet of sprokage to his halfpipe runs.

Louie just needs 2 more feet.” It wasn’t a comment on how much bigger he needed to grow (now 20, he stands 5-5). It was an assessment of how much bigger he needed to go — off the lip of a snowboard halfpipe. . . The Ohio native had all the flips, turns and style to be one of the best at negotiating the slick troughs that serve as snowboarders’ playing fields. He just needed more height on his tricks — amplitude, in snowboarder-speak — to win the judges’ highest marks.

And now it looks like he’s done it. The secret: “a no-holding-back start for optimum speed.” Ah, yes. Speed.
