Hi, my name is Bobby Brown. My discipline is freeskiing big air/slopestyle. My friends call me BB. I was born on 5 July 1991 in Colorado, USA. My special talent isdouble flips. My philosophy of life is keep pushing your boundaries. My favourite food is a Chipotle chicken burrito. My favourite music is Eminem, 50 Cent and Talib Kweli.
Colorado’s Bobby Brown is an international freeskiing sensation and one of the sport’s new pioneers. As an 18-year-old, Bobby became the first skier to win back-to-back gold medals at a single Winter X Games by throwing down an incredible performance in Slopestyle, and two never-before-seen tricks in Big Air (where he also earned the event’s first-ever perfect score).
‘BB’ has stood atop the podium at the Winter Action Sports Tour, the New Zealand Freeski Open, and the Junior Freeski World Championships, the Winter X Games, and the Winter Dew Tour. He has also earned honours such as a nomination for Male Action Sports Athlete of the Year at the ESPYs. At the 2010 Winter Dew tour finals, Bobby made history by becoming the first person to land a Switch Double Misty 1440.
Also possessing mad skills in Halfpipe, this phenomenal triple-threat has been called “the single most dominant park skier in the world” – and his breathtaking manoeuvres and charismatic presence on camera have helped to expand the freestyle fanbase. Needless to say, Bobby is carving a fast-accelerating career that shows no sign of slowing down.
In 2014, Bobby qualified to be part of team USA in the Olympics' first ever slopestyle skiing event in Sochi. Although he came 9th in the final ranking, he was really stoked to see his team-mates Joss Christensen, Gus Kenworthy and Nicholas Goepper take the top spots. Brown returned in 2015 with even more passion and verve. This culminated in second place finishes at the Big Air event at the Winter X Games 19 and the Jon Olssen Invitational, and a first place finish at The 7th Annual Dumont Cup.
