We had always heard that Chima was one of the better shit talkers in skateboarding but we weren’t able to confirm it until we brought a breathalyzer to Tampa Pro. Our mission was simple: try to find the drunkest skater who was still competing. Most of the pros were either too shook to do it or just didn’t want people to know how tanked they really were. That was until we got to Chima – he didn’t hesitate to take a rip at it, and even better, he shit talked a bunch of other pros the entire day and night to try it out too.
While that pretty much has nothing to do with the mix below, we needed some words to be written to accompany this mix, and to be honest, we don’t know much about the bloke but we’ve loved him ever since he helped us out in Tampa. Cheers Chima!
More Mixes? Check out: Heath Kirchart, Bill Strobeck, Blondey McCoy, Louie Lopez, Nora Vasconcellos, Alltimers, Rodrigo TX, Stefan Janoski, Franky Villani, Pass~Port, The 69 Mix, Beagle, LurkNYC, Bam Margera, Mike Arnold, Jason Sallilas, or Kevin Rodrigues.
