Chris Cole Interview

Chris Cole 1

Chris Cole talks to us about skating, Fallen footwear, Hotwax, and music in this Active exclusive interview.

[zp]chriscole[/zp]Active: Why are you back in California right now?

Chris Cole: To film for the Fallen Video and hang with friends from here.

Why don’t you move over to California?

I am. The family and I are looking to move next year.

The Angry Skateboarder here in the office wants to know how “Hotwax” is doing?

“Hotwax” is ruling. Our second video “Shred the Gnar” is going to be done soon.

What can we expect to see from you in the coming months?

Hotwax video, hopefully some tours, contests, and then the Fallen Video.

When was the last time you were scared while skateboarding?

Always get a little butterfly in the stomach but that is normal, work through it.

Do you have any new shoes coming out?

I am actually skating the Trooper again. I skated the Ripper for about a year or so and I am back to the Troopers. But, I switch back a forth a lot. No new ones, the Rippers are still kinda new and they are good.

Why should kids buy your shoes and not someone else’s?

Cause they look cool (in my opinion) and skate great, and Fallen is a core company for skate rats. That’s how I feel at least. If you don’t wanna buy mine that is fine, but buy a pair of Fallen’s cause I love this company.

Who do you usually skateboard with while you’re home?

Hotwax….that’s it really

What music have you been listening to lately?

Bodom, Smashing Pumpkins, ZZTop, Kate Bush, Norther, Elton John, a bunch I don’t wanna list.

Have you ever been arrested?

Not really, well yeah, but the story is stale and takes a while.

What is better, winning a Gold Medal or being in a video game?

The video game is priceless, but a metal means I got to skate that day and that is great.

When you play the video game you’re in do you play as yourself?

I will probably play as everyone sometime or another.

What is your favorite TV show and why?

Friends- so damn funny.Lost- addictive.Scrubs- so damn funny.

What do you think about while you’re skateboarding?

Music, that’s it really. Music rules all our lives.

Do you have any advice for the people reading this article who hope to become a professional skateboarder one day?

Skate or die.
