quoting You hate to love it:
Chris Farmer and the buds were joking about him doing a switch ao topsoul on this downrail (not the one on the picture above). Upon further inspection it had a downhill runup, crack, and was rackable. He said he was over it as it was the first spot of the day. I jokingly called him a “Chicken shit” and it was on.
No warmup, only a crayon to wax the rusty piece of shit, and the clip cherry for the new party van “Explorer” had been popped. Yummy breakfast.
Hometown: Plymouth, Minnesota.
Top 3 rollerbladers of all time: Arlo Eisenberg, Dustin Latimer, Aaron Feinberg.

Words to live by: “Live in the present.”

CREATE ORIGINALS™ welcomes its two newest riders Alex Broskow & Chris Farmer to the 2010 Pro Team.
Anything worth doing is worth doing right and we wanted to welcome our new riders to the team with open arms. So when Chris Farmer and Alex Broskow were ready to make the commitment and join the ranks of the Create Originals Pro-team we felt we had to go the extra mile. We could have just had them send in some footage but we felt it was just as important to get hot footage as it was to get everyone together and skate as a team. Airline tickets were booked, the Kelso cruiser was fueled and arrangements were made for our team to have the 50,000 square foot Rye Airfield Skatepark all to ourselves for not 1 or 2 but 3 CO only sessions. Here is some more of what went down… ENJOY!
On another note spring is almost here and we at Create Originals have been working hard to get you a new line of frames to keep you looking fresh into these upcoming warmer months. We now have the ability to manufacture WATER PROOF and tear resistant graphic inserts IN HOUSE. What this means is that we are now unlimited in our options… there is going to be an explosion of new graphics coming. Starting with our new line of signature frames from everyone on our team… Sean and Colin Kelso, Billy O’Neill, John Bolino, Chris Farmer, Alex Broskow, Franco Cammayo, Austin Paz, Mark Wojda and our NEW team member. This new line is set to release at the Bitter Cold Show Down and we will announce the new rider there as well.
Along with the new line of frames there will be a new shirt line, 3 NEW COLORS of G-Blocks(only limited amounts available at BCSD), bandannas, dog tags and PRINTABLE BLANK GRAPHIC INSERTS. The Blanks are awesome! They are pre-cut inserts attached to sheets that allow you to either hand draw or print from your computer on them and then simply pull your graphic right from the page and insert them into your Create Originals frames. NO CUTTING REQUIRED!
Ok, so here’s the official press release to address all of the rumors about the Create Originals pro team.
When the three of us started Create, we had a vision for how we wanted to portray the company, team and image.
Our goal is to provide the best for the skate community in all aspects, not only with our product but with our team image and riders as well. Basically, we wanted to offer more than a new product, we wanted to give the skate community something to be excited about and proud of.
That being said, we at Create Originals are very proud to announce our TWO newest pro riders, Chris Farmer and Alex Broskow. We’re excited to have them on board and you can expect to see a lot of cool things coming from Create Originals in 2010. Welcome to the team fellas! CO.
The 2010 Pro Team: Sean Kelso, Alex Broskow, Chris Farmer, John Bolino, Colin Kelso, Billy O’Neill.
In his issue #14 interview, Chris Farmer opened up to ONE like we were Barbara Walters. He told us about playing in his brother’s band, realizing skating was a job, and why he dicks around at contests. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
