Chris Joslin 2018 Berrics Populist Winner

January 22, 2019

Chris Joslin is the 2018 winner of the Berrics Populist! Populist is touted as the “direct democracy” where the fans get to vote for the best skateboarder of the year. And Chris Joslin swept the competition with his impressive, jam-packed year. He kicked off 2018 by releasing a jaw-dropping 12-minute part in etnies ALBUM full-length film, which amounted to 18% of the entire video. The Berrics deemed the 22-year old Chris Joslin as “already one of the most prolific skateboarders of all time.” Later in the year, Joslin released yet another video part to accompany the release of his very first pro model shoe, the etnies Joslin Pro. The video part departed from his usual arsenal of enormous stair sets and massive gaps by showing the world how versatile he really is with an entire video comprised mostly of ledge and line clips where he predominantly skated switch and fakie. To cap off an already impressive year, Joslin also made it to the final round of Battle at the Berrics, a flat ground competition in which he championed the previous year. We’re proud to be a part of his journey and can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for this young wolverine!
