When Nick Merlino first arrived on the scene, he turned heads and dropped jaws. He was one of the first skaters that people had to stop and wonder “wait—is he goofy, or is he regular?” He brought a switchstance assault to gaps and rails that was previously unthinkable, and in many ways hasn’t been touched since. Switch backside 360s down twelve stairs, switch backside 360 to lipslide down handrails—Merlino landed these tricks, as well as a spot on the Foundation team, and before long, a pro board as well.
