Chima Ferguson

It’s probably natural to want to find a way to escape a remote island penal colony in the middle of the ocean, especially if giant spiders and seven out of ten of the world’s deadliest creatures ever to roam land and sea inhabit said colony.

Or so you might think. Not so with Sydney, Australia’s finest, Chima Ferguson. While Real Skateboards’ pro Chima has recently made his way to The States to plunder skate spots with his gnarly brand of bigger than big switch tech gnar on all forms of stairs, gaps, rails, banks and ditches while filming for Vans’ first-ever feature length video, he remains clear in that he has no plans to stay on indefinitely in the land of the seppo. For now, I guess we'll just have to consider ourselves lucky to have him while we can.
