Chaz Sands is without doubt on of the biggest talents to come out of the Blading industry. The Scottish powerhouse has been a constant presence in the industry since day one. The phrase been there, done that and got the t-shirt doesn’t really cut it when talking about Chaz. From Pro skates with Salomon to numerous world tours and having his own competition series with it’s own TV show, he has a very impressive list of achievements. We caught up with the Iron Brew filled machine in Manchester, UK to talk top 5.
