My name is Chris Gentry. I was born and raised in Houston, TX. and also reside in Costa Mesa, CA. I've been skateboarding since 1984 and I'm still currently active in performing shows and demos around the world. Aside from a skateboarding and music career, I'm also a proud father of my son Micah Gentry. Learn how it all began.

Ridaz Gotta Ride is a slogan I came up with when I first started the Pro Riders Organization PRO in 2002. I felt like every other sport had an association like the PGA, the NBA, the MLB, etc... protecting and supporting their careers, and if action sport athletes were going follow in their foot steps, then I figured we needed to unite and make it happen. Why? Because if a Players Gotta Play, and a Ballers Gotta Ball... then a Ridaz Gotta Ride!
Party In The Parkin Lot began back at the Skatepark Of Houston, TX. when I was young looking up to Texas Legends Ken Fillion and Troy Chasen. They use to hang out in the parking lot after vert sessions and have a blast. As I got older in life, I realized that it's not always about the skateboarding and how well you do at the event... it's about how much fun you had and enjoying the good times that all the Ridaz bring to the event. When you miss the cut... there's nothing better than to see all your favorite people in life together for one big Party In The Parkin Lot. Life is a ride and we ain't here for a long time... we're here for a good time!
RIDAZ started around the same time as Pro Riders Organization and Ridaz Gotta Ride. As I drove around the country recruiting all my Pro Riders, I needed a calling that would catch a Ridaz ear and being the wordster that I am, it naturally came out through passion and expression like Where are all my RIDAZ at? Inspired by the real Pro Riders that Ride For The Cause. If you ever walk in a room and here someone yell out RIDAZZZZ! You know your in good hands like All State!
I hope you've enjoyed learning about where we've come from and why we do the things we do. You have to do something in life to make a living and Riding is what we love to do. A Ridaz Gotta Eat and a Ridaz Gotta Be PROtected for PROceeds to PROceed.
