ABOUT HOSOI & HOSOI SKATES:

Christian Hosoi, also known as "Christ" is a pro skateboarder born in Venice Beach, California. He started skating around the age of 7-8 alongside legends such as Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva and Jay Adams.

His father, Ivan "Pops" Hosoi, became the manager of the Marina Del Rey skatepark and Christian Hosoi left school to spend his time skating there.

He was successively sponsored by Powell & Peralta, Dogtown and Sims Skateboards at the age of 14.

Hosoi went on to bowl and ramp competitions alongside Steve Caballero, Mike Mc Gill, Lester Kasai, Mark "Gator" Rogowski and became Tony Hawk's main rival.

As talented on the ramp as on the street, Hosoi has an impressive record of victories in American and international competitions. In 2011, he was listed as the 4th most influential skateboarder of all time by Transworld Skateboarding magazine.

Hosoi is still very active today as a skateboarder and has accumulated sponsorship contracts with brands such as Vans, Pro-Tec, Independent Trucks, Rvca and Rocket Wheels.

His skateboard brand, "Hosoi Skates", spanned the decades by building a team of prestigious pro-riders early on such as Eddie "El Gato" Elguera, Allen Losi, Lincoln Ueda.
