The latest installment of Chops’ (AKA Eric Swisher) skateboarding archivist’s dreamland, The Chrome Ball Incident, is up and as always, it’s a banger.
This time around Chops sits down with Maryland native, one-time Mad Circle and DC pro and most recently Chocolate Skateboards rider, Scott Johnston.
If you follow Chromeball then you’ll know what to expect: scans from mags generally long-gone, questions from one of the deepest geeks in the game and the full story on the after-life of some of the most celebrated skaters of their time.
This one is pretty inspiring with Scott talking about his early life as a sponsored skate for Think and Venture, growing up skating Pulaski with the likes of Pepe Martinez, then taking the plunge and moving to SF to join Mad Circle, Justin Girard’s brand under the Giant umbrella, before ultimately ending up on Chocolate Skateboards for the remainder of his pro career.
