Our April Skater of the month is Chris Weissmann. This skateboard wielding, Black Sabbath listening ripper is coming in blazing! Chris and his family have been longtime locals and friends of Skatelab for over a decade. Chris, or sometimes better known as Crusty, grew up the same way all the younger Lab Rats did. Learning new tricks at the Lab, meeting new friends and sharing the love for Skateboarding. Now into his 20’s, Chris is killing the streets and the park. Always with such an enthusiastic and outgoing attitude.
I personally remember when Chris and his brother first visited Skatelab.. It was at least a dozen years ago. He showed up with the smallest most worn down wheels I had ever seen. They must have been worn down to a 35mm. These things were not much bigger than the bearing.. I’ll never forget how worn down those things were.. LOL!! Still to this day, we have those old wheels.around here somewhere.
Chris has been getting a little action from ATM and Acid Wheels for sometime and now in talks with Globe. He’s grabbing a lot of attention lately. Check out his Instagram and see for yourself.
We rep this dude 100% and are stoked that Chris calls Skatelab home. Even more proof that there is truly something special in that Skatelab drinking fountain water!
