Best of 2008: Chris Oliver

You couldn’t escape Chroliver over 2008. From placing first at both NASS and the UK Champs, to dropping his first full part in years on the mighty ‘Savior Faire’ and constantly churning out mag and web coverage, I doubt many could argue that 2008 certainly looks to have been Chris’ year.

Unwitting skate scene domination aside, we caught up with Chris to find out what he’s been into over the past 12 months, before venturing off to Australia with Kris Vile and Ross McGouran for the foreseeable future. Down with the Ozralites coming soon…
