Chris Coté is a multimedia action sports personality. As a youngster, he surfed professionally, albeit at low, low professional level (C-grade at best). Then Chris worked in the surf industry as a team manager, marketing assistant, and blah blah blah. In 1999 he aided in the start of TransWorld Surf magazine and became editor-in-chief in 2005 or so. Along the way, he's worked as a television host, commentator, DJ, roadie, and is now producing, writing, and consulting for various media entities and brands. He's not as fat as you probably think he is. He still surfs and skateboards every day. He's as blind as a bat, making his trademark chunky glasses less of a fashion statement and more of a necessity. He knows surfing. He even writes his own bios. He's awesome.
