Kris is my favorite skater. His 180 down the double set in the Union video is a triumph. His best part in a skate video. He is a beast. He has been killing it for more than two decades...pure win.
Always had a magnificent frontside indy.
i watched Winona Riders so much back in the day. think of how quickly he progressed between that and the 101 video (his peak, as far as i'm concerned).who does dude ride for now?
One of my all time favorites!!! His part in the Prime video "Fight Fire With Fire" gets me hyped every time!!!
such a good style, and quite underrated.
Burly style, always in control. Another one the kids just don't get (try asking one what a Vich Flip is).He rides for Given now I think.
krisithinkthisisanolliechrome.jpg I never knew what trick it was in the Indy ad either.Really dig the kf with the black/gum airwalks.Angle on that fs air Prime ad is amazing.All his sponsor jumping I think tarnished his legacy a bit. Every kid today should know how good and gnarly he was/is.
What's he up to now?Always loved watching his 101 partThat part in the Element video was sooooooo FAST!RAW!!!!Unrealted...... is ABD done?
Chops you did it again! But real talk, Markovich's dumbest move was leaving 101 for.... well I have no idea where he went. All I know is that Color was sick, then the company folded and became Prime.
Finally a skater that can spell his name right! I saw this cat at a local contest back in '88 I think(Big Deal on Beale)and he was impressive then and still rips.I really dig the art direction from his Crimson and Given companies. He also has a budding etsy franchise going.
A-1 MEATS DANICIN IN THE DIRT was when I became a fan.Best part in that video too.This guy should be paid for life from skating but is having the same troubles as ricky oyola trying to run a small skate company and stay afloat.
dude always looks burly, even when the trick isn't that crazy. i like that. it's pretty hardcore.
One of my all-time favorites. He had so much good coverage.I always wondered about that Indie ad, too, though I'm pretty sure it's an ollie. And that Union ad. So sick. I had 47-mm Urine-Thanes.
Kris is still killing it to this day. I wish him and Lucero would get together. Markovich on Black Label would be a match made in heaven!
I think it's awesome how in all of his video parts Markovich is getting tricks at spots that are just getting blown up today. The gap to noseslide he does in the 1994 Color video, for example...it took over ten years for someone else to get a new trick on it (Slash, Fallen's Ride The Sky). The dude was ahead of his time...
Kris is a true legend. I still have his frontside 180 down the double set (Airwalk) poster hanging in my office!
That Color video is a classic.Markovic. King of the gaps.
