WHO THE F*CK IS THIS GUY?

When he was just a young guy, Chad Muska moved to San Diego with no money and nothing but a sketchbook and portable cassette player. His one goal? Become a great skateboarder. Years later and he’s now one of the most recognizable, worshipped names in all of skating.

Muska has skated for Toy Machine, Shorty’s, éS, and C1RCA, and Element Skateboards. He founded the skateboard wheel brand Ghetto Child and opened the store Factory413 in Los Angeles—releasing signature sunglasses and shoes for his own brands and major players like Supra.
