Jacob Pinto is broadcast live on ESPN, winning his first ISKA World Championship title of the night for boys 14-17 open hand forms.
And then he wins his second title of the night in Weapons.
He even had time to teach a seminar or two.
Then he headed to Washington DC to take home to win the Hyper Games tricking battles with his team.
And the very next day was back in Los Angeles to battle for his chance to compete in Korea at Red Bull Kick It.
And after two intense battles, he won!
Bailey has attended more tricking events around the world than we could list. And if you follow Bailey on his instagram account, then you know there’s nothing more he loves than tricking around the world with his friends. Bailey’s specialty move are swing-throughs. In fact, he’s the undisputed champion at swing throughs. And here’s why.
*A swing through is a popular transition to link tricks together where the athlete keeps one foot off the ground between tricks.
At Loopkicks 2014, Bailey easily beat some of the best trickers in the world at the Swing Through Battle.
The following week, Bailey competed in another swing through contest at the JAM gathering, again, crushing it.
The winner of the swing through contest at the JAM gathering got to take home $100 per swing. With 19 corks, that means Bailey earned $1,900 in 15 seconds, which according to our math, is $456,000 an hour! Why grow up to be the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company, when you can cork like Bailey Payne? It’s time for a career move Bill Gates.
It was a special time to be in California if you were a tricker this summer.
