Originally from Santiago, Chile, Francisco Zurita, aka Coco, moved to the United States in 2003 to progress his pro career. Since then Coco has become one of the top Vert/Mega ramp riders in the world. He is the first rider in the world to land a triple tail-whip and has competed in more than seven X Games.
With his fresh style and carefree attitude, Coco has shaken up the scene. Along the way, he’s also picked up some impressive accolades, including a third-place podium finish at the BMX Worlds in 2009 and a Rider of the Year award at the Dew Tour in 2010, a competition he regularly rides throughout the US summer months. And in 2013, Coco won his first X Games medal – a silver – in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, and he continues to rock the X Games in true Coco style.
Coco resides in California and is a permanent resident at Woodward Camp West skatepark, where he can be found practising on the Mega Ramp. When he’s not in the saddle or delivering sky-high airs, Coco might be found pursuing his other passions – big cars, and photography.Read more
