Ride the Lightning

See Street Skating Hero Chris Cole Shred, Talk Bond Between Skaters and Metalheads

In the third installment of "Ride the Lightning" — our video series dedicated to badass skateboarders — we hang with two-time Skater of the Year and street-skating icon Chris Cole, who explains the type of mental circuitry that's necessary for his sport and to take the kind of beatdowns that comes with the territory. As Cole sees it, heavy metal also has those types of individuals — relentless and resilient — which is why he relates to the metal crowd so much. "There's tons of rad guitarists out there, but I just like the form of metal music more," enthuses the skater. Watch Cole tear it up at The Berrics and get loose in some legit street action.
