Christian Hosoi - there and back again.

Christian Hosoi- Marina

Ripping it with style… Christian Hosoi. I think that the first time I ever saw a photograph of him was in Action Now magazine. I recall it being an ollie in the brown bowl at Marina. He just continued to get better and better. Nobody was as exciting to watch on a skateboard as Christian. He was bigger than life. The world fell at his feet. He embraced fame. He gained everything, lost himself, then lost it all. Now… Christian is a great example of how one person can fall by the wayside but overcome it all and return to a wonderfully healthy place. He serves as an inspiration. Style. Perseverance. Legend. Thanks to Grant Brittain for the rocket image. Skate - Ozzie
