Most people saw Chris Haslam for the first time in Deca’s 2nd to None video. Chris rocked a shaved head, baggy shorts, white shoes and did really tech skating, including lots of flips out of boardslides and lipslides. He wore pretty much the standard Canadian skater’s outfit of that era.
Then there was a bit of a change, he grew his hair long and started to don some facial hair in his Digital 9 part. You can see the transition in his footage.
After that the hair and beard kept growing until he resembled Grizzly Adams. The tech skating continued though and Chris definitely is in the running for the techest big beard skater of all time. Perhaps only Richie Jackson comes close.
