Jake 'Ironman' Brown is an Australian skateboarder who competes in the X Games.


Jake Brown has some of the hardest vert skateboarding tricks dialed in, like 720s and his double kickflip mute. However, in competitions, Jake Brown tends to go for the biggest tricks, which often backfires if he doesn't land them. But skating conservatively is not Jake Brown's style, and his mastery of technical and flip tricks lead him to his first X Games gold finally in 2006. Jake Brown is known for being soft spoken about his incredible skating, and for his sly sense of humor.


Jake says he likes the tailgrab 540 and backside airs, and grinds.
