Maurio (pronounced Mah-Dee-Oh) was born and raised in Reading Pennsylvania on November 18th 1995. He began skateboarding at the very young age of just four years old after his older brother Dante gave him his first skateboard. He was immediately obsessed with progression in learning new tricks and began pushing himself to build a skill set far beyond his years.
In addition to being known as an incredibly humble and nice guy on and off the board, Maurio is probably best known for his massive floating kickflips and attacking street terrain of every kind. His technical abilities combined with his smooth style have already cemented Maurio as a force to be reckoned within contests and out in the streets.
At the end of 2016, Maurio moved to Los Angeles, CA, to be closer to the heart of skateboarding. He has been busy filming video parts for sponsors while at the same time training for this year`s upcoming contest season. Maurio explains, “I am excited to see how this contest season unfolds... I don’t see it as me vs. other skaters, however more of meeting my expectations of what I want to present to the rest of the world”.
Maurio will no doubt be one to watch as we get closer to the Olympics.
