For years, Eito has been revered as one of the most progressive vert skaters of all time, but he has now entered a league of his own. Eito started quad skating before the age of three and changed to inline when he was nine. Eito creates unbeatable runs, bringing not only explosive height and brilliant style, but also the most progressive and intimidating line ever seen. His signature tricks include the 1080 California Roll, a double back flip and a yet-to-be-named trick he unveiled in the Spring of 2006 with two back flips and a 720. Eito's strength is his consistency.
