Born in '92, Broc Waring caught on to snowboarding quickly thanks to some help from his skateboarding skills. Competing by the time he was 10, Waring quickly pushed his way through the ranks to become a threat in both park and pipe when he competes. Toting nothing but the smoothest spins and most unique grabs, Broc wants to take his skills all the way to the Olympics.
2008 was the season where Waring solidified his position as a major threat in the pipe with some outstanding World Cup finishes, the highlight of which was his eighth place in Bardonecchia, Italy. Waring's success didn't stop there as the Junior Worlds team member finished second in a stop at the Revolution Tour and wrapped the season with an eighth at the Burton U.S. Open.
He picked up snowboarding at 7 while hanging at Northstar-at-Tahoe, but didn't pick up the board again until the family moved to Colorado two years later. "Oh, and I had this K2 118 with an octopus on it, and clicker bindings." A couple of big results in '07 and U.S. Snowboarding coaches gave him the green light to join the Rookie Team for '08.
