Chris Cole

Two-time Thrasher Magazine “Skater of the Year” (2005 & 2009)

WHO THE F*CK IS THIS GUY?

If there’s a trick that seems impossible, chances are Chris Cole has done it. The 360 flip and switch frontside flip. A backside 360 kickflip down the Carlsbad gap. A backside flip, switch frontside flip and backside 360 ollie at Philadelphia’s Love Park fountain. The guy has done it all.

Before skating for Enjoi and Zero Skateboards, Chris rode for G-Spot Skate and Snow. He’s been featured on Tony Hawk’s RIDE Channel, the Battle at the Berrics 6, and more. Cole now co-owns Reign Skate Shop in Philadelphia, and did we mention he’s also a Killer BMX rider and co-owner of a BMX company, Cult?

 

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE.

Chris Cole has become a sort of ambassador for the sport of skating, connecting the old and new generations and helping it stay focused on what matters most— a bunch of kids who just love to skate doing it for the sake of doing it. That’s a cause that we can all get behind.
