He didn't give himself that nickname, the dudes from Warp skatepark did, although he claims it a little too much.  I think his biggest issue is he's a typical midwest kid, a little slow to catch on to the trends that skaters on the coasts tend to be a little quicker to adopt.  That whole yo style with the diamond earrings and backwards hat are a direct influence from his favorite skater, P-Rod, who also runs the backwards hat and diamond earrings.  Supposedly Chaz is moving out to Cali once he turns 18, and I think all the things he does that people hate on him for, will go away and he'll come into his own style both on and off the board.....

Dude, wtf are you talking about? Josh Kalis, Neen, and Josh Harmony are from the Midwest, so are Randy Ploesser and Patrick Melcher. All of them seem pretty different. I don't know what you mean by typical midwest kid.
Anyways, I find it weird that he's on a board company that represents a city that has developed some of the coolest street styles in skateboarding when all he seems to have is skate indoor parks. Sure, he's good (although some of the stuff he did in his State of Mind part had been done by people who don't even have a shop sponsor) and probably super consistent, but his skateboarding is boring to me.

I won't really judge him as a person, because I've never met him. I've heard some things though.

Yeah and none of those dudes were anything until they moved out of the midwest.  Josh wasn't anything until he was associated with Philly, and Neen was barely flow for Nike before he moved out to Cali, and now he's dropped his hometown board sponsor and turned pro for Deathwish and Supra.  My point was and still is, kids in the midwest are sheltered, and if you don't think so then you tell me why the D3 is once again killing it out there.

D3 shoes? I've seen those Osiris moon boots but only on kids riding scooters and bikes... I guess I was a bit overzealous, but I still don't really know what you're talking about. So as soon as they move, they're no longer from the midwest?

do you really think in this day and age that midwest skateboarders are sheltered? with the entire industry resting in the hands of the internet and the midwest having some of the strongest shops in the country do you think it really matters. and then whats the difference of midwest from east coast? its clear that you have to move to california to make a career out of skateboarding and that skateboarders in california are more "privileged" but as far as trends go, where all on the same level. and im assuming the d3 comment was sarcastic. sorry for the rant. i started typing and couldnt stop

i grew up skating with chaz at warp and he was lame even before he was famous. super cocky, always snaking people, wasn't grateful for anything, was rude to a lot of kids, the list goes on and on. now that he's a big name in skating its even worse. if you could all see how he skated you would see why he is such a contest skater. his dad literally had him training and doing runs at warp with a stop watch. thats why his video parts aren't up to par and are full of ABDs. obviously he doesn't suck at skating, but he could do a little better for video parts. a lot of people here in chicago are completely over that kid, including people he grew up with at warp. unfortunately a lot of the younger kids from here don't know the real chaz and think he's god or something.

Id love to get paid thousands of dollars to drink free gatorade.


I wish I could get paid thousands of dollars drinking this instead.

That'd be rad if they started some kind of sponsorship..

They already got Boss drinking it on the daily.





I really don't like being an elitist (OR DO I???)....but make your own damn coffee!  I would rather get free coffee beans rather than starbucks coffee.



A Maxwell House sponsor would be nice.

I watched a clip where he skated some Chicago spots, it was actually pretty good. I understand all of your presumptions on his personality though. He seems like most kids do these days that are cocky with no perception of how their attitude rubs people the wrong way. I know alot of younger kids have style just like him, generic. Yet you can't deny his skills. Just not much originality.


I thought this little edit was ehhhh. Not gonna hate on him, but I can see why people expect more. He just doesn't really push the envelope. Which would be fine if he was personable, but I guess there are stories about him acting arrogant or whatever.

THE ZOO YORK POST: Chaz Ortiz in Chicago

At first I saw him go into uprise and thought "maybe this kid is cool." Then upon closer inspection I realized what happened. He went in to get his board, and as tolerant as those guys were they were like "Here's your board, now go set that shit up outside! I don't want to look at your stupid face in that damn new era cap! And don't just leave the fucking tools on the bench and skate off once you set it up like last time!" And then he did. What a fucking asshole.

haha. i feel gay for saying this, but it bothered me how the filmer tried to use uprise to make him look more core and like hes from the city of chicago. hes just about as far as it from a homie who would hang out at a local shop and i wouldnt be surprised if that was his first time at uprise. all the spots he went to in that video  (excluding one or two) are the kind of spots everyone thats never skated the city go to

Goro would use his other hand to cup his balls probably.  Maybe work his back with some fancy massaging device.  I think it's reasons like that man wasn't supposed to have 4 arms.
