Luke Mitrani burst onto the national scene at age 12. A microwave of energy, Mitrani lives to snowboard, skateboard and everything else that involves movement. In his first full year of senior level competition, he made the finals in nearly every event he entered and hasn't slowed since.
Mitrani had a huge season in 2009 as he marked the Burton U.S. Open with the largest airs of the competition. The ripper, who's notorious for throwing switch frontside double backflips in 2007, laid down a cab 720 mute grab, into a frontside 900 tailgrab, Michalchuk nosegrab, a frontside 720 and a switch double backflip to take third at the annual event.
Mitrani stomped his mark on the scene as a mini shredder and caught a lot of attention for his skills. So much so, in fact, that he was signed with and riding for Burton by the time he was just 9 years old.
I like to surf but I'm not very good at it and I also like skateboarding, cooking, snowboarding and jammin' out on my guitar. Brother, Jack, and sister, Liza, also compete on the pipe.
