usually describes a person in skateboarding, surfing and sometimes snowboarding, who, through industry connections receives free or hugely discounted gear and clothing.
most bro brah's were either sponsored, pro, or worked in the industry.
the term was originally coined by the "queba's" (east of I-5) who, unlike the bro brah's, pay full retail.
2- pro brah's are active "pro" "athlete's" who are generally, washed up, haggard, tired, over 40. almost totally male, still clinging on to the dream.
3- friends of both bro brah's and pro brah's, who through their connection, receive discounted or free product, are also bro brah, but usually just called bro's. (i.e. the bro deal)
"jesus! Jeff is still skating? that pro brah never quits"
"Ray knows all the bro brah's, they hook him up with bro deals"
snowboarder2: nah bro brah, i was too busy carvin' freshies!
