Raised on New Hampshire’s seacoast and surfing by age six, Tucker Perkins didn’t take long to discover his calling. On weekends he trekked to the family condo at Attitash, where his cousins schooled him in backyard hucking off homemade jumps. He soon moved from racing to moguls to freeskiing, and at age fourteen his smooth style earned him recognition in Sports Illustrated’s “Next Snow Search.” He competed in his first X Games at seventeen, became national halfpipe champ at nineteen, and was named to the inaugural U.S. Freeskiing Team. One of the hardest-working athletes on the tour, Tucker has enlisted Olympic aerial skier Britt Swartley and an NFL strength coach to help in his pursuit of excellence. When he’s not training in Park City or competing globally, Tucker’s inner New Hampshire comes out—he surfs, plays the drums and saxophone, works on motorcycles and cars, hunts, fishes, and dreams of meeting Bear Grylls.

Tucker’s mittens have a cool pattern that reminds him of his ski moves, and his surf moves, and whatever rad moves he happens to be doing at the moment.
