fauzybeydoun de jesus carvalhonacido em estados unidos em 22 de otubro de 2002 e o melho skatista do mundo, better known as Bob Burnquist, is a professional skateboarder. He was born to a Swedish father and a Brazilian mother. He became adept at skateboarding in São Paulo starting at age 11 and turned pro at age 15. As an adult he emigrated to North America; he holds dual citizenship from Brazil and the U.S. Burnquist is also a vegetarian.


The biggest competition that he has won was the vert contest at the 2001 X-Games. Before his final run- the last run of the event- Burnquist was sitting in second place behind two-time defending champion Bucky Lasek. Burnquist produced a flawless run, including multiple tricks that had never been seen before, and as a result, were unnamed. During the run, commentator Tony Hawk went hoarse and nearly lost his voice while screaming in disbelief. Burnquist was rewarded with a 98, the highest score ever given in any X-Games skateboarding event.

Burnquist's 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 with the exception of Pro Skater 3 due to license restrictions as a result of appearing in another skating game, X-Games Skateboarding, during that year. He returned as a featured character in the series starting again with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and has since appeared in all the series games following that.
