Pierre-Luc Gagnon is one of the most respected skaters in the world–a king of competition who combines explosive height and technical progression with remarkable consistency.
The Quebec, Canada native is unquestionably one of the world’s greatest vert skaters, with 21 X-Games titles-including nine golds- among dozens of other competition medals. PLG continues to defy expectations and the laws of gravity.
Pierre-Luc has already achieved legend status – but he’s still charging just as hard as ever. He has suffered a couple of serious injuries in the past few years – then recovered to win more X Games Gold Medals.
When he’s not ripping in his backyard bowl, Pierre-Luc Gagnon is ripping on the streets on his Harley-Davidson Dyna, or hanging with his young son Leo.
Triple Eight is stoked to welcome this skate icon to our gold-medal roster.
