Chris Russell is one of the most talked about up-and-coming skaters on the scene. Russell lit the Park scene on fire in 2016, winning the first event of the
Vans Pro Park Series in Melbourne, Australia (ahead of 5-time X Games Skateboard Park gold medalist Pedro Barros, his good friend) and finishing in the top 5 at big events like the Vans Combi Pool Party, Malmo Vert Attack, Oi Bowl Jam, Bowlzilla, Red Bull Skate Generation Pro, and Van Doren Invitational. Then Russell showed up to X Games and claimed his first X Games medal (bronze) in Skateboard Park. Lately Russell has been splitting time between the skateparks and surf spots near his home in Hermosa Beach, CA and Barros' backyard bowl and local beach breaks in Brazil, while filming a part for the new Creature video.
