Interview with Leonardo Vinicius

Tracking him between school and skate

Leonardo Vinicius may only be eleven, but he possesses a self-taught skate style way beyond his years. Read his interview.

by DANNY BURROW – photos by Bobby Schauch & Victor de Luis & TSG

Leonardo Vinicius may only be eleven and knee high to a grasshopper, but he possesses a self-taught skate style way beyond his years and has a head on him that will take him far in skate and beyond. Want proof? Not every kid is trusted by Tony Hawk to ollie over him in the pipe!

Click to watch the double

Stoked to be his new protection sponsors TSG tracked him between school and skate, at home in Spain, to ask him a few choice question on life, skate and living the dream.

First off, it is not that often that you get to interview an 11-year-old that has ‘PRO’ in his title. How stoked are you to be skating pro at such a young age?

I went from watching Moto Shibata every day on video to standing next to him, doing tricks that I learned watching his videos.

I earned the PRO title through hard work, no one gave it to me, I just feel that way. It’s for my dedication and discipline. Normally in Skate you aren’t a PRO until a board brand makes a model with your name on it.

young skateboarder Leonardo Vinicius

I read a message someone posted on one of your Insta reels that they thought you were the next Danny Way – That is one hell of a statement to live up to don’t you think?

An excited fan can say things that are way over exaggerated. Danny Way is one of a kind. In a couple of months, if all goes well, I’ll meet him and be able to talk about skate.

Who were the skaters that you watched to get as good as you are?

All the skaters I’ve seen up until now, but each one of them has given me something. I must tell you that I’ve learned without having a pro tutor by my side, and as such other skaters have been luckier than me. Hosoi, Ueda, Sloan, I can name a bunch of them, but above all the great flyers have been my inspiration

Leonardo skates everyday in Burgos vert ramp

Are you going to be the skater your younger brothers and sisters look up to as a mentor of transition?

My brothers don’t like to skate with me to skate as my sessions are hard. They only come skating with me when we are going to have fun.
I am one of the oldest kids in the family and I must set an example in many things. But doing what I do with so much discipline is not something that the little ones are necessarily in to.

And how was it skating with some of the guys at the X Games? A dream come true?

Every day I watch the video of my best round in X Games to believe that I was there. Just think, I was selected for X Games, and I had never been to America, I’d never met a pro and it had only been 5 years since I got on a skateboard for the first time – I don’t think there’s another case like mine.

I went from watching Moto Shibata every day on video to standing next to him, doing tricks that I learned watching his videos. Eliot Sloan was super good to me, and Gui Khury treated like he was an older brother the two times I was next to him. Also think about this, when I had my fourth and last go, Tony Hawk was there telling me, “Leo, relax, it’s your time.” Can you understand what this is like? It’s like you can’t believe it. But I lived it and I feel lucky.

skateboarder Leonardo Vinicius at NL Contest in Strasbourg 2023

What was the next best thing that happened to you in 2023? I am guessing it was getting to hang out with Tony Hawk, doing doubles?

The best thing about 2023 was that my entire family was healthy, and we have been closer than ever despite being away from home for many weeks. The one moment that really sticks with me is getting the invitation to X Games. It was the greatest possible prize for the greatest effort ever made by my family. It was like the steamroller that squashed all the skepticism in me.

There are still people who ask me about where I came, without taking into consideration that there, there were only extraordinary skaters, none of whom are the number one, but they are all super skaters capable of winning when it is there day.

I am Spanish, it was the second competition of my life, the first was the World Cup in Argentina, I went when I was 11 years old, becoming, if I am not mistaken, the third youngest in the history of Vert X Games. It is difficult to think of something bigger than this. Other things will come up, but this is hard to beat.

Lastly, anyone can double over Tony if he is up for it, but what I did, Ollie on the second attempt, with the responsibility and him passing underneath me at full speed, that is without doubt a moment that is burned into my retina forever.

skateboarder Leonardo Vinicius at X Games 2023
skateboarder Leonardo Vinicius at X Games 2023

Alright, what does a regular day in your life look like? I am guessing there is always a bit of riding the half-pipe in Santecilla, Burgos?

Every day I get up early for the first session, 7-8 in the morning depending on the day, then I go to school. When a championship is coming up, I add another session at 7-8 at night. Two years ago, my family moved to live next to Half Pipe and it was a success. Having the ramp so close to home, about 7 km, makes it easier to combine skateboarding with life.

You must be stoked to have TSG gear to keep you in one piece in the pipe? What is your favourite piece of kit?

Well, you could say that things have been exemplary with TSG. From the first moment they have not messed around and given me all the material I could ever need, in fact double.

I believe in what they’re doing, in the people behind it, and love the quality of the gear. It is for sure letting me ride at the highest level being super protected. And the fact that they have both interior and exterior protection has massively improved my safety.

Leonardo Vinicius vert skateboarder 11 years X Games

Have you got any words of advice for any kids your age and younger who dream of skating X Games?

Of course, I’ve got some advice; I’ve got thousands. One of them is that they be free, which is what skateboarding is, right? That they feel free on the board, do it their way, on the ramp, on the street, wherever they want, how they want. Arriving at the X Games is another thing, and it is an adventure that’s not within everyone’s reach; you must be realistic. Dream for sure but keep it real. Nobody gets to the X Games without serious professional dedication.

And finally, what are your dreams for 2024 and beyond?

For 2024 my dream is for my family to stay together for another year, with health and happiness and of course be in an X Games final again. And we’ve got the world championships of vert in the WRG of Italy, which will be something special and it is for national squads, and I’ll be representing my country.

New Team Rider

Welcome Jake Atkinson

The UK slope ripper joins TSG

TSG’s mountain bike team just got a fresh pair of wheels with the addition of 20-year-old UK freestyle ace Jake Atkinson. Welcome to the team Jake.

Jake is one of those glitches in the matrix of professional mountain bike, dropping out of nowhere to rattle the rankings with a bag of tricks and truck loads of natural style. Earning his ticket to ride in nationals Jake rode out of the shadows of his hometown Kendal to land second place at the 2023 Red Bull Roof Ride. He’s got the guts to drop new tricks like 360 triple truck drivers in competitions.

“I’ve always dreamt of getting into the biggest events, but I never thought it would happen as fast as it did,” Jake admits.

Jake Atkinson mountain bike rider Slopestyle

Jake grew up smashing the rocks and trails of Kendal, in England’s green and pleasant Lake District and on his journey to pro status he’s ridden it all, from trials at seven, BMX at eleven and now MTB slopestyle. His intuitive style and a hunger for a seat at the top table of biking has seen him pop up from unknown rider to Red Bull Rookie of the Year 2023 in the turn of a cog.

But drive aside he’s also biking for all the right reason: “I’m just trying to have a good time and keep whatever I’m doing as fun as possible!”

Jake Atkinson mountain bike rider Slopestyle

Barcelona times

Jake and TSG are set to have a ton of fun as partners and the safer he feels in our kit the more confident he’ll be dropping hammers.

Welcome to the team Jake – Go hard!

“I’m super stoked on the partnership with TSG. It feels great to be a part of a team of riders you have always looked up to and I’m looking forward to the future to see what comes!”

An interview with Nikita Ducarroz

The BMX mistress of tricks and all-round Ms amazing

BMX mistress of tricks Nikita Ducarroz is our freshest addition to the TSG Global Team and as advocate for mental health, a killer bee on a bike and an all-round good egg, there is no better person to chat with to stoke the need to get padded up and send it than Nikita.


Hey Nikita, you had an amazing international upbringing, with a Swiss dad, American mum, and childhood split between California and Switzerland. How was that?

I feel so lucky to have grown up in that dual culture between the US and Europe. We spoke French with our dad and English with our mom and got to spend a lot of time in Switzerland with our family there. Sometimes it felt a bit strange as a kid as I never really felt like I fitted in 100% with either side, but I wouldn’t change anything if I could.

Nikita Ducarroz bmx

What was your roadmap from football to BMX? It’s a pretty extreme change of discipline…

Ha! It just sort of happened naturally. Or, ‘unnaturally” I guess you could say. Football was everything for me. But when anxiety and panic attacks started to take over my life around 14, it became more and more difficult to keep up with the requirements of a team sport and I eventually quit, with the stipulation from mom that I had to find something else active to replace it. I started by just riding my bike around the local walking trails we had, until one day I discovered BMX through YouTube videos. That was it. I was hooked. I saved up for a proper BMX bike and started riding in my driveway until I had the guts to go to the local skatepark. I never looked back.

How would you compare a team sport like football (sorry can’t call it soccer as am English) and BMX? I mean the mindset of it not the mechanics on the field of play.

I guess at the base of all sports the mindset is the same. Pushing yourself to be better, train harder, achieve more etc. But the mindset for BMX once you get past those similarities is so far beyond any team sport. The risk is so much higher in every little thing we are doing, so the mental aspect is big. I think on top of making all the typical sports stuff like repetition, consistency, pushing through etc, you have that fear factor that you have to push through at all times. You have to be ok with crashing, getting hurt, and that it’s just a normal part of the sport. It really is such a huge mental battle.

Nikita Ducarroz bmx

What was it about BMX and the community that surrounds it that “saved your life”?

I felt so free entering the BMX community because I could just be there, no one was counting on me but myself, and there were no rules etc. That took the pressure off me that I felt with team sports. The community was so immediately welcoming, they were all ages, backgrounds, yet we all just shared this passion that brought us together and none of that mattered. I found a place that I could slowly work on myself to have less anxiety about leaving my house, without any of the constraints of a team sport that just brought on constant panic attacks. Riding also taught me how to keep pushing for something, because of the process of trying and learning new tricks. And I think I really was able to take that mindset I learned from that into life and into working through my anxiety.

I am so in awe of you setting up MindTricks: Can you tell us how that project came about please?

I really tried to make a point of sharing Instagram posts here and there that were raw and vulnerable, to show the not so pretty side of things. The un-manicured, not perfect side of Instagram. To be real and show my journey as an athlete, especially one dealing with mental health problems. We set up MindTricks after thinking maybe it would be cool to have a central location that I could continue sharing my posts of that nature, while also talking to more athletes and sharing their stories, to encourage others who might be going through similar things and feeling like they are alone.

Is it the mission of MindTricks to save the lives of others by giving them a safe space in which to talk about their anxiety?

The goal was really just to have a space where we could share people’s stories of being athletes and dealing with mental health and mental illness and encouraging people to open up and not be afraid to talk about it and ask for help. Just really normalize the conversation around it, so that if someone is ever suffering in silence, maybe they read one of the posts and realize that it can affect anyone, even these “perfect” professional athletes, and that it’s ok, and not a weakness to ask for help.

Nikita Ducarroz bmx

For so many, the arena of competitive sports is a terrifying prospect, but you come into your own when the pressures on. Can you tell us a little about what gets you hyped about competing?

I won’t lie, I get incredibly nervous at competitions and usually all I want to do when I’m standing up on the deck before it’s go-time is go home. But I just love that feeling of having 60 seconds to show what you have come up with, 60 seconds to try your line, and the adrenaline that comes with it. I also just love the travel that comes with it, getting to compete in so many different countries, experiencing new cultures… it’s amazing.

How did the DDASC training facility in North Carolina get you prepared in body and mind for going all in?

Moving to the DDASC in 2020 was the best decision I ever made. It was right before the world shut down from Covid and I was able to continue training with a small group of the world’s best with no distractions. Having that routine, riding every day, and those guys around to push me really helped me focus in on my weak areas both mentally and physically, and put the work in to be a better rider. It was such an adventure leading up to Tokyo 2020 and memories I’ll never forget.

You have a bulging trophy cabinet, which includes silver at 21’ and 22’ Worlds and the European Champs and Bronze at the Olympics: Is there a win or even a loss that stands out in your professional career as a moment that moved your world?

I mean the Olympic medal for sure was that one that just didn’t (and still doesn’t) feel real. Never in my entire life did I think BMX would take me to the Olympics, and so to be standing there with the opportunity to not only compete at them but come home with a medal was unreal. I feel like when I started riding BMX, it was just something I did for myself, it made me happy. There weren’t really any competitions for women, and I didn’t even really know that was out there. I was just riding because. So, to stand on that podium and know that I was able to take that feeling and show the sport to the entire world, to a whole side that maybe didn’t know about BMX before, that was really cool.

Nikita Ducarroz bmx

What have you got penned in the calendar for you and your bike, including Paris 2024?

For now, I’m just getting ready for the Games! I’m going to spend some time in Costa Rica training; there will be some qualifying events before Paris, and I’ll just be working on my tricks and preparing mentally. After that we still have more events like any other year so it’s going to be a big travel year for competitions. I would say that’s definitely the focus of 2024, competitions. Japan, France, China x2, Hungary, and the UAE.

You must be stoked to be taking on the future with TSG protection?

So stoked! The half shell helmet from TSG has always been hands down my favourite one, so making that switch only made sense. And, of course just to know there’s such an extensive line of protective gear as well, I have all my needs covered in one shot. I’m excited to work with a brand that’s in Switzerland, and a brand that really works closely with the riders to come out with the best stuff!

What would you like to say to any kids out there that are having a hard time and looking for a new direction in their world?

Have patience with yourself, be kind to yourself. Sometimes things take time. If you just work on one thing each day, pick one task to battle, no matter how small, that stuff adds up in the end. Just take that first step

Nikita Ducarroz portrait

So happy to be riding for TSG! In addition to the helmets, there are so many other models of protective gear which are an absolute necessity in BMX, so there’s really something for everyone!

Bike safety tips for kids

Kids Bike Helmet Guide

What helmet should I buy for my biking kids?



Read on for our tips on finding the right helmet to keep your kids safe while biking.

Find the right helmets for biking kids

In this guide, we’ll provide practical advice on selecting the appropriate helmet for your child’s biking needs. We’ll explore the key factors to consider when choosing a helmet and how to match it with your child’s biking activities to ensure their safety.

A comfortable secure fit is key

TSG Kids Helmets Nipper Mini

Keep them safe while having fun.

What makes a good fitting helmet? 


A kid’s helmet should fit snuggly without wobbling around and should definitely not obscure their vision. A comfortable secure fit will boost them confidence, not distract their minds from riding and keep their mellow in one piece when they do come off.


Good helmets come with adjustability and range from easy micro adjustments with sizing wheel – not to be used to fit an oversized helmet in the hope that they might grow into it – and removable sizing pads. These are a feature of skateboard and slopestyle helmets, and different thicknesses of sizing pads can be used to get the perfect fit. These helmets are lightweight, provide superb coverage and unimpaired lines of sigh and are perfect for kids stepping up their freestyle game.


Children are still growing and their necks are not yet as strong as a full-grown adult. Therefore, a light helmet is an advantage. Our smallest helmets are all built in a lightweight in-mold construction and start at a weight of 210 gr.

What type of helmets is the best for my kid?

Helmets for Mini Kids / Starting out

Kids starting out on a balance bike or riding with stabilizers need a snug fitting helmet, with a deep fit that provides full coverage, including the back and sides of the head. It is also advisable to avoid having a peak, as super groms tend to keep their heads down when they start out.

TSG Kids Helmets Nipper Mini

Helmets should fit low without restricting the vision.

TSG recommends:

Nipper Mini helmet  & Nipper Maxi helmet

Our lightest helmets in the line and the first inmold half shell helmets every made when we launched them back in 2010. Our Snug Fit does not need a dial adjustment system. The Nipper helmets simply fit perfectly and, thanks to their low fit, also cover the child’s temples and the back of the head securely. The Mini Version protects heads from 48-51 cm head circumference. Maxi from 52-54 cm. 

Meta helmet

The Meta is a helmet model for life. We offer it in a total of 4 shell sizes and within the shell sizes there are also size adjustments. So you can start with it as a toddler and as your head grows, you will always find a suitable Meta helmet. Lightweight Inmold construction with integrated size adjustment system.

Helmets for Trail riding kids

Once your kids are out riding trails they’ll need to change up their helmet. Firstly, ensure that the helmet has fine tune-ability with either removable pads or a dial system and once fitted the helmet should not move backwards or forwards, so it doesn’t distract them while riding and stays firm in bails – always good to remind them that the chin strap is not decoration but an essential part of the helmet. Also the harder they ride the hotter they will get, so ventilation is key to keeping them comfortable.

TSG kids Trail Helmets with removable chin bar

You can remove the chin bar on the Seek Youth FR helmet and convert it into a open-face helmet.

TSG recommends:

Seek helmet

The Seek helmet is robust thanks to its hard shell construction and super ventilated with 17 large air vents. For kids we offer it from 52 cm head circumference (size XXS/XS).

 Seek Youth FR helmet (with or without mounted chin bar)

The Seek Youth FR comes with a chin bar that can be optionally removed. This means you have two helmets in one.

As your child begins to push the envelope on progression and starts going bigger, faster and higher, you might want to consider a half-shell skate style lid design for more protective coverage.

Helmets for Park/BMX kids

When your young recruit moves into the park the frequency and severity of slams goes through the roof, so their helmet needs to be even more protective with a deeper fit for more coverage for the back and sides of their skull. A secure fit is imperative in these conditions and it’s also worth noting that they will be spotting landings so a clear field of vision is essential.

Helmet for Urban kids

Urban riding is perhaps the most frequent type of biking that your child will do, so comfort, lightness and perfect fit are paramount. We recommend that you choose a helmet with a deep fit and nice overall head coverage, as concrete and cars have big consequences for bikers. Also, on a more ephemeral note, always consider the aesthetic taste of your child, as they will be keener to wear a helmet if they think it is cool. We offer a great selection of colors and designs.
