Michael “Fitschi” Tan hails from the south-west of Germany and grew up skating under the regiment of tech-sensation Alex Mizurov. And it shows – Fitschi is known for highly technical flip maneuvers, preferably down big sets and gaps. When he’s not Bigspin-doubleflipping down the Macba Three, he’s probably at the wrong airport, waiting for you to finally show up. ‘Cause that’s just how he rolls. Chilling hard, calling curtains.
