S2 / EP20: CHRIS EDWARDS

Chris Edwards lived more by the age of 20 than most people do in a lifetime.  He was a pro athlete at age 14, dropped out of high school a year later and became the face of the fastest growing sport on the planet.  Chris was in the movies, on TV, was the first to go big on ramps, first to grind a rail, and, as far as I know, the first to have 6 biological children and 4 wives.  Chris and I talk the rise and fall on the podcast
