Stance: goofy | Specialties: technicality, incredible balance
Chip finished second at last year’s Stab High—the result of a not-entirely-completed frontside varial in the final. Had he stomped this maneuver as cleanly as he did in the prelims, Chippa would have been the clear champion. As it were, the world’s most technical aerialist has room to improve at the 2019 event, and if he pulls out the “hand-assisted 360 shuv-it” in the final, it might be night night for his competitors.
