Kevin grew up in New Jersey and began skiing recreationally in Pennsylvania’s Poconos at age 11. By 1994, he was a serious snowboarder and occasional skier living in the Lake Tahoe area when he became paralyzed in a snowboarding accident. With a heralded career of wins in adaptive skiing, Bramble has made a reputation for himself not only as a racer but also as a freeskier. One of the first people to take a monoski into terrain parks, half pipes, and extreme terrain, Bramble and teammate Monte Meier are featured in Warren Miller’s 2006 ski movie “Off the Grid”. After several years skiing in a monoski he had purchased, Bramble decided to design and build his own. He began hand-building monoskis for friends and teammates, and Kevin Bramble Goodz (KBG) was born. After operating the business out of his garage in Truckee for several years, Bramble relocated back to his hometown of Cape May Court House, New Jersey, in 2006 so his family could help him run the business.
