Shredding raw with Chris Russell

Catch up with Red Bull TV star, Creature fiend and coping crusher: Chris “The Muscle” Russell.

The word “professional” connotes a certain level of polish, a clean presentation and refined filter that carries through every aspect of life. In the office, think business casual, a floral aroma and an absence of F-bombs from one’s vernacular. In sports, think best behavior on and off the court, media training, PC smiles, handshakes and photo ops. Nothing wrong with this version of professionalism, but skateboarding missed that memo, which is obviously a good thing.

Try skating your ass off for an hour and looking like anything other than a puddle of sweat and grime with ripped pants, missing skin and bruises. Sit and watch a skater attempt the same trick for hours on end and listen to the symphony of expletives that’ll echo through the streets. Skaters kick the shit out of themselves all day every day — they get a pass when it comes to four-letter words of salty nature.

Enter Chris Russell, new addition to the Red Bull skateboarding team. Russell embodies everything that is raw about skating. With full focus on transition, his approach is fast and powerful, his nickname “The Muscle” translating directly into how he handles his board. He likes his music loud and metal, his deck wide, and doesn’t bite his tongue when it comes to expressing his thoughts.
