Chima Ferguson


One would be hard-pressed to name anyone that skates as smooth and stylish, with as deep a bag of tricks as Sydney, Australia’s switch technician, Chima Ferguson. There’s a damn good reason Chima was asked to set the tone with the first part in Propeller; his laid-back approach to the hairiest tricks exemplifies our Off The Wall philosophy. Only Chima has the gift to make a switch backtail down 13 look as causal as slappying a curb. Naturally his chill vibes carry over into his tough as leather Vans Signature Pro collection.
