Riding under the lights of his local North Carolina ski resort must have given Luke Winkelman superhero powers.
Before he was even of age, he got the MVP nod from heavies like Mark McMorris at the first Red Bull Recharge event. Climbing the competition ranks without a coach telling him what tricks to do, Luke developed his own explosively unique take on riding. With original style and gratitude beyond his years, Luke is launching into the spotlight of international slopestyle sessions and podiums.
