Christian turned pro in 1981 and immediately changed what we thought was possible on a skateboard, redefining how even the most basic tricks are supposed to look. He exudes a natural style that has been mimicked many times but never replicated. Hosoi has been an ambassador for skateboarding for over three decades beginning with his early and meteoric rise to the pinnacles of success and stardom to his triumph over the eventual crash and burn which followed. Christian's comeback story makes him revered the world over. And if all that weren't enough, Christian was recently distinguished by TransWorld Skateboarding Magazine as the fourth "most influential skateboarder of all time" in their definitive list of skateboarding's greatest legends.
