PROFILE

 

Brandon, a 22-year-old pro skateboarder from Salem, Oregon has made a name for himself in skateboarding, primarily as a competitive downhill longboarder, traveling around the world shredding hills and learning new tricks.

"Growing up in a small town in the Pacific Northwest, I was involved in sports and photography from a young age. After five years as a competitive wrestler, I discovered downhill skateboarding when I was about 15 and immediately set out to not just be good at it, but to become one of the best. Working my way through school, I even delivered Jimmy Johns sandwiches by skateboard – challenging myself to be faster than the other guys who used a car. In the seven years since, I’ve gained both skill and a sizable following on social media.  I’m known for an aggressive but refined style.

I’m currently sponsored by five skateboard-related companies and travel the world regularly for competitions and media opportunites. For Moonshine Mfg., a high-end specialty board maker, I help plan marking strategy and manage their social media presence.

I’ve been in college – studying business, sports marketing and photography – for two-and-a-half years and have even managed to make it onto the President’s List for academic excellence. I decided to take time off from my studies however when the unique opportunity arose to use my skateboarding skills to do stunt work in a feature film. Released at the end of January, I served as Vin Diesel’s stunt double for the skateboarding scenes in the film “xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage.”

I’m stoked about what’s to come. I have plans to finish college and, of course, to keep racing and appearing on podiums around the world holding my skateboard up in the air!"
