Charlie Blair has overcome more obstacles in 27 years than most people will see in a lifetime. This regular-footed Fullerton, California native found solace and escape from a dysfunctional life in skateboarding, and the local skatepark and its community became Charlie’s second home. He recently took home first place at the 8th Annual Sheckler Foundation’s Skate For A Cause event, and is quickly earning his place, both as a professional skater, and a crowd favorite.
Pro status has done nothing to slow him down—if anything, he’s even hungrier to skate hard and attack any obstacle in his path. Charlie skates for Powell-Peralta, Weedmaps, Independent Trucks, Bones Bearings, The Hundreds, Active, and the EtCetera Project.
