Bob Burnquist

Biography:Bob Burnquist (born October 10, 1976 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is a professional skateboarder. He was born to an Swedish-American father and Brazilian mother. He became adept at skateboarding in Sao Paulo during his teen-age years, and as an adult emigrated to North America; he holds dual citizenship from Brazil and the U.S.

The biggest competition that he has won was the 2001 X-Games. His speciality is switch stance skateboarding. He has always tried to find new ways to make his tricks more creative and more difficult. He has a signature trick called "one-footed smith grind". Burnquist has also been featured in the hit video game, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and appeared in all of its sequels. However, he was not featured in Pro Skater 3 because of license restrictions, as he was featured in another video game, X-Games Skateboarding, during that year. He is again, however, a featured skater in the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series.

Burnquist has also won a gold medal on the 2005 X-Games Best Trick vert contest.

Burnquist is the only skater to go over a loop ramp with a gap in it (credits from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4) Not only was the loop gapped, but Bob also did the gap switch. He is also the first skater to go through a loop while riding switch stance, and the first to go all the way around a full pipe just by pumping up to speed inside it.

As of 2005, he lives with his girlfriend, professional skateboarder Jen O'Brien and their daughter Lotus, in Vista, California.
