Known around the globe as the originator of Freestyle BMX, Bob Haro grew up influenced by the skateboard and BMX race scene in southern California.  As a kid he started doing tricks on a BMX bike and wound up spearheading something radically new, and influencing generations with his riding style, artwork, and designs. 

Also a stunt rider in the now infamous BMX chase scene in Steven Spielberg’s production of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, today Bob is known as the legendary athlete, designer, artist, and businessman who introduced a new sport to audiences worldwide as he started the first trick team, built the first freestyle bike, and started the first freestyle bike company, Haro Bikes, which continues as a mainstay in the bicycle industry to this day.
