I can’t believe next year will be 20 years that Chico Brenes has been pro. It’s kind of a trip to think that he has been around for, or been a part of, just about every advance in technical skateboarding history. Makes me feel old because I’m pretty sure I was in my 30s when Chico turned pro.
Over these past couple years we’ve been lucky enough to see an increased amount of Chico Brenes coverage in magazines, LRG’s video and web clips. And if you saw Cheek’s “Firsthand” on Fuel last year you already know the stories about how crossing over to America and having his appendix ruptured could have easily ended his skate career before it even started.
