Hi, my name is Paddy Graham. My discipline is freeski big air and slopestyle. My friends call me either Padski or Reggie. I was born on 15 January 1988 in Sheffield, UK. My special talent isgardening but shhh, don’t tell anyone. My philosophy of life is have a good time, keep positive, and if you fall down, get back up and try again. My favourite food is sushi. My favourite music is rock ’n roll.
Paddy ‘Reggie’ Graham first skied after persuading his parents to send him to the USA on a school skiing trip. There he discovered a real love and aptitude for the sport. By age 14 Paddy had had lessons, picked up sponsorship and was spending most of his spare time at the ski village in his home city of Sheffield, in England. By 16, he was able to leave school to concentrate on his skiing career.
Paddy is now the UK’s number one freeskier, and his achievements include winning titles at the Battle of Britain London Freeze (2009, 2010 and 2012), Red Bull Playstreets and Red Bull Tribal Quest.
In order to ski every available minute he can, Paddy is now based in Innsbruck, Austria. His off-mountain interests include rock ’n’ roll music, sushi, New York City and – his secret love – gardening.
Since 2009 he has been one of the masterminds behind the Legs of Steel crew; the freeski film-makers who brought us 2015's multi-award-winning Passenger.
