Chris Coté is an Action Sports Personality, a known entity in the world surf, skate, and snow.  He had a short pro career, realized he was never going to be the best, and worked his way into a long career behind the scenes in the surf industry.  Along the way, he’s toured with Blink 182, traveled the world, partied, broadcast some insane events, and cleaned his life up.  It’s an interesting and entertaining story.
