About Chaz SandsMy name is Chaz Sands I am 26 years old from Glasgow in Scotland, I got into Rollerblading when I was 13 years old when my mum got me a pair of skates for Xmas, they were really not good skates at all but that didn't matter I was hooked as soon as I had them on. I just skated around the streets really to start off, just learning the basics I suppose not really doing tricks or anything just developing my balance to be honest. Then one day I bumped into a crowd of guys all on skates jumping onto handrails and flying off hand built ramps and I was truly amazed. Every day from then I went to that place and skated with that crowd of people and that’s when aggressive skating truly became a part of my life. Now I’ve been skating for about 13 years I’ve achieved a lot of great things, I have great sponsors that treat me well and I travel the world competing doing demos and hanging out with the most amazing and interesting people ever, none of this would be possible today for me if I didn't strap on a pair of skates once in my life. For anyone out there that’s never given it a go or who has and thinks they are rubbish, you don't just put a pair of skates on and instantly become amazing... it takes time, practice and determination just like anything else.
