My name is Bobby "Casper" Boyden. I've been skating for over 30 years. 'Casper' is a nickname that was given to me by my fellow skaters. During my professional career, I was very fortunate to have been able to skate with and against the guys who are now considered to be 'the old school skate legends'.
In the 70's, I traveled the world, skating in exhibitions and competitions. I won my first world championship at age 13, in 1976, at the NBC light-weight/heavy-weight world championships. I skated at events that were nationally and internationally televised.
We were the 'Originators' of the sport! I was best known for my trick innovations; the 'Casper Disaster', the Kickflip, rail tricks, and many of their variations. I was also the first skater to pull off a Kickflip on vertical.
Casper Industries is my skate gear company. My motivation is directed towards developing and distributing skateboard product lines that will be endorsed by some of the 'old school skate legends' who we all know and love, along with featuring product lines endorsed by some of today's top stars. We are devoted to ripping it up, sponsoring events, and keeping out sport alive and well!!!
