John Cardiel: Streets Of Chrome
STREETS OF CHROME - ALL HAIL CARDIEL
John Cardiel is Legend. He absolutely flipped the skating world on its ear with his hard-charging, uncompromising style. He helped forge the image of the 90s skate punk along with his compadres at Anti-Hero boards. In 2003 he got run over by a truck, injuring his spine and relegating him to a wheelchair. When the doctors told him he’d never walk again he said, “Fuck That”. A little over a year after the accident he had gone from wheelchair bound to walking with a cane to crushing concrete on a fixed gear. You might think a dude with that much intensity would be tough to talk to, but Cardiel is also known for his laid back attitude, his passion for pretty much anything on wheels and being stoked on whatever it is that he’s doing.
Cards has been a part of the Chrome Familia for years and we’ve worked together to design some kick ass bags that will stand up to the rigors of a guy who lives life as hard as Cards does.
