Must-Watch: Bobby Brown and co. absolutely crush backcountry jumps in new film, “Be Water”
Bobby Brown has always been renowned for his ridiculous talent in the terrain park. After all, three X Games gold medals don’t just fall in one’s lap… Today, though, Brown shows the world that he brings much more to the table than a knack for hitting immaculately sculpted jumps; today, Brown unveils Be Water—a film that showcases 10 minutes of nothing but pure backcountry booter insanity.
That’s right: Taking place entirely in the backcountry, Be Water highlights Brown going HUGE off hand-built booters. From Montana to Wyoming to British Columbia, Brown spent the season chasing skiing success and it’s safe to say he found it. Joined by skiers like Banks Gilberti and his brother, Peter, Brown is 100 percent stoked throughout the whole film—and rightfully scared sh#tless at times, as he frequently pushes his comfort zone—showing that he had a ton of fun while on this search.
Crowning moments of this masterfully crafted short film—the work of Stept Productions—include a massive triple backflip (1:09 and again 1:31); insane double corks throughout; vicious slams; a healthy smattering of mind-boggling GoPro POV shots; and an absolutely massive switch double rodeo 9 Japan on a step-down jump (8:25) that’s sure to put Bobby in contention for various “Shot of the year awards.” All told, it’s non-stop action from start to finish with a few moments of essential humanity and humor scattered in between.
Watch this film over and over in anticipation of another big winter, and show some love for the hard work this dude put in to make Be Water happen.
P.S. We extend an additional congratulations to Brown on bagging our 2017 Resort Guide cover. The magazine is on newsstands now and you can read more about it, here.

US Olympian, Bobby Brown, is know for his success in ski competition, but over the past year we got to watch his dedication to a different aspect of the sport. His film project, "Be Water", features Bobby pushing the limits of backcountry jumping to new levels. We are excited to release the trailer tomorrow, and even more pumped to get out there again with Bob this winter! @bobby_brown1
