Doug Brown Bio
Written by Melissa Bussey

Chances are you've seen Doug Brown on the Fuel Channel, at the Gravity Games, AST Dew Tour, or even on a stick of X-Air Deodorant, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Doug is a songwriter, published author of his autobiography Doug Brown - Beyond the Board, full time professional skateboarder, and founder of Skate Straight. Hidden behind his contagious smile and charisma is a wide range of talents and a strong sense of determination. Doug's love for the world of  skateboarding began in 1986 around age 12, after seeing Back to the Future for the first time. He and his buddies spent every available moment on their boards throughout junior high and high school. While the skateboarding trend has waxed and waned in popularity, Doug's commitment to the sport remained constant.  Even when his time was stretched between his music career and traditional business ventures, he maintained a regular schedule of practicing and honing his skills. As Doug matured, so did his talent and confidence.  His skate life began by chance in 2002 when he worked his way into the Gravity Games and caught the eye of his first two sponsors.  After that, he began skating demos and winning several competitions throughout the states. After twenty years of boarding he is still faithful to his original style of skating while integrating new moves into his repertoire.   Currently, Doug can be seen skating anywhere from four to six skateparks a week, as well as making personal appearances at various events. He has had a busy schedule this year, participating in over thirty events.  Some of the highlights of this crazy schedule are participating in the AST Dew Tour, Gravity Games, the Summer Invasion Skateboard Series and numerous television spots on Much Music Television, 54321, Fuel Network, ABC Sports, ESPN, Fox Sports, Planet X, Xcorps TV, and the Sports Talk Network. Sponsorships include Ninja Bearings, Negative 1 Griptape, Sneaux Shoes, Dunkees, and Triple 8 helmets.Notable causes include involvement with Athletes For Hope and his own Skate Straight Program.
