World of X Games: Being – Chris Joslin

To avoid the encroaching gang life surrounding Hawaiian Gardens, California, Chris Joslin’s grandmother introduced the young skater to El Dorado, the nearby skatepark in Long Beach. There, even at a young age, Joslin avoided the transitions, preferring to jump over entire pyramids straight to flat.

This tendency sparked something in the young skater, and by his teenage years, Chris Joslin was traveling throughout Southern California in search of huge stair sets and setups to jump down. Eventually, word spread of Joslin’s exploits, and he was invited to join the esteemed Plan B Skateboards team and film for their 2014 video “True.”

His part shocked the world of skateboarding, and from there, things went from zero to one hundred pretty fast for Joslin. More video parts followed, more sponsorships followed, and he turned pro a short time later. But along the way, Chris Joslin had to check himself.
