CHIPPA WILSON on tatts, tricks and being rad

Chippa is an unapolagetic rippa. We bunged up his latest clip a couple of weeks back, but neglected to put up the interview he did for us with it. Idiots! Here she blows, with another chance to check the man’s vid from Baja.

So Chippa, why Chippa? Where does the nickname come from?

Chippa, just was a name that stuck since i was a lil kid. Just a childhood thing.

Tell us about your tatts. Do you get more action from womans with ink? Is Ink more popular than t-shirts in Australia?

I have my right arm/ chest and knee covered. My fav would probably be the T-rex on my knee….. and i guess some girls like them but some girl don’t. They are becoming more and more common. Tshirts are still more common……….

Fave/worst things about Australia…

Fave thing it i have lived here my whole life and all my friends and family live here! Worst is the price of things lately.

Fave/worst things about Europe…

Fave would have to be the waves and women! Both are amazing! Worst is that i am not that good at your languages, so everything is hard!

Do you do yoga? Or would trampolining be better? Do you dance?

None of the above, i just skate as much as i can and surf all the time…… those two together is perfect for. A lot of fitness helps too.

Top 3 beers and why?

VB, Asahi and Kirin with some japanese is unbeatable.

3 places you never been to but would like to and why?

Moscow, Russia, Amsterdam Netherlands and London, UK. I think it would be a whole lot of fun.

Places that you probably wouldn’t hurry back…?

i haven’t had that bad of a time anywhere really, i mean there’s a few clubs and food places that i will not being going back to but country wise i have loved anywhere.

What can we expect from the future of surfing and the future of Chippa?

Im going to be trying new tricks and stay happy surfing. As for me, still haven’t gone and seen the lady with the crystal ball! Only she knows!
