Big Boy Foy might not look like it, but he’s got the finesse of a figure skater when he’s on a board.
Starting his path to pro at age 4, Jamie entered a contest in his hometown of Deerfield Breach, Florida. He ended up getting a year’s supply of pizza for being the youngest contestant.
After that first contest, he made a name for himself in Amateur contests before moving to LA in 2016. Not long after that, Foy made his debut on the global stage.
In 2016, Foy debuted in a video for Deathwish, his new sponsor, before taking on Thrasher’s “King of the Road”. Foy pulled off a massive 50-50 for the Muska challenge, and turned pro for Deathwish by the end of the show.
Only a few months later in 2017, Foy won Thrasher’s “Skater of the Year” award. That’s right, in little over a year, Big Boy Foy went from amateur to pro to Skater of the Year.
In 2021 Foy won second place in the 2021 X Games in the Street event. He also won best trick at the same event.
