Danny Kass

Despite being under five and a half feet tall, Danny is always going big in the half-pipe.

He took the silver medal at the Olympics by pulling off a spectacular "Kasserole spin" - that's two upside down twists while grabbing the board. The trick was taught to Danny by his older brother, Matt, who invented it. When Danny's not riding through a half-pipe, he's drawing graphics on his snowboard or making music. He's the lead singer of a band he and his friends formed called Bent Metal. Danny rode his winning run at the Olympics while listening to AC/DC and Metallica.
