    Supra expanded into Mexico in 2014, and Muska opened the brand's store in Mexico City in November/December.
    More Details Hide Details He designed a custom sculpture to reflect city’s history—titled "El Sol, La Luna, Y Más Allá," the sculpture was installed as a permanent fixture in the store.

    Age 35
    Muska partnered with the New Image Arts gallery to open his first-ever solo art exhibition, titled "Transitions," in June 2013.
    More Details Hide Details Muska explained: I set up this space. It was sort of a concept space for me and just a trial thing to bring a lot of people together from skaters to photographers, to artists and designers, directors, architects – I mean all these different people in one space and I wanted to encourage creativity. There was a big 20ft wall with supplies and it was a non-stop changing graffiti wall. So anybody that came I encouraged them to paint, interact with each other, have a good time and then my work was being created there and displayed there as well and people came and saw that and asked me to do the show, and that’s how it happened. The press release for the show explained the title's origins: "The title of Chad’s first show... is a word that not only stems from the curved surfaces skateboarders ride on in pools, parks, and ramps, but it’s also a reference to the skateboard lifestyle which is defined by movement from place to place, and from one state of mind to the next."
    In addition to introducing a new version of the Berrics indoor skateboard facility in early 2013, Muska appeared on numerous occasions as a referee for the sixth installment of the Battle at the Berrics contest series, run by The Berrics website.

    Happiest beyond, craziest times, gnarliest adventures, everything, you know?" As of 2012, Muska resided in Hollywood, California, US.
    More Details Hide Details Muska filmed a "Footnotes" segment for the Berrics website, in which he revealed his love of footwear, including his personal collection of footwear and models that he has designed. During the interview for the segment, Muska clarified, "I'm not, like, that "sneaker collector guy" where, like, I buy one of each just to, like, save 'em and have 'em; when I like sneakers I like to get 'em and use them more, and wear 'em." On July 14, 2011, Muska was arrested for "felony vandalism" on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, California, US. The 1996 Toy Machine video Welcome To Hell features a bonus part from Muska that was edited to a song by Nappy Roots called "Right Now".

    The top five skateboarding influences, as identified by Muska in 2012, are Christian Hosoi, Natas Kaupas, Mark Gonzales, Pat Duffy, and Nyjah Huston—during the same interview, Muska admitted that "there are so many" and also named Kris Markovic and Jeremy Wray.
    More Details Hide Details In response to the matter of who is the all-time, "number one" influential skateboarder in history, Muska named Gonzales, further explaining: Like, I mean, just because, for me, skateboarding was never about just progression; it was about, like, the individual, and the person, and what they brought to, to skateboarding. Not many skaters could have a career as long as he has and still maintain that idea, you know? Like, still, he is skateboarding; that is, everything, is Mark—it's freedom; it's not caring about anything; it's about going on your board and enjoying yourself; pushing yourself physically, mentally, and having as much fun as you can possibly have. That's what skateboarding is and that's what Mark is. Muska has named a variety of influences in regard to his shoe design work, such as Louis Vitton and the Nike "Jordan" range, further explaining that he has attempted to merge the aesthetics of the fashion and sneaker cultures. In an interview to promote the third Skytop model, Muska elaborated on his future direction:
    In addition to the influence that Muska has had on Penny, Muska revealed Penny's influence on his own skateboarding in 2012:
    More Details Hide Details I think what was cool is that he was pushing skateboarding in a direction that I wasn't... and I was pushing towards bigger handrails, bigger "hubbas", and, kind of, unconventional skate spots. And so I think, the two of us, kind of got psyched off each other, you know? next thing I know, he was hitting, grinding bigger handrails; I started frontside flipping over handrails, you know, like?... And just as people, I think, like, he remains-I don't have to see the guy for ten years and we'll still be best friends... You meet people over the years that you connect with and are inspired by, you know? And I think me and Tom were definitely a major part of coming together and helping progress skateboarding at the time Muska has also identified Jamie Thomas as a major influence and described him as an individual who is readily able to identify others who are willing to work at their skateboarding diligently. Muska explained, "I'd just watch what he was doing... he's talking and they're listening to him, you know? So I think Jamie really opened my eyes more that you could do more than just skate and get more involved with these companies, you know?"
    Muska first became interested in skateboarding as a young person following a relocation to Phoenix, Arizona, where his father was residing at the time. Muska explained in a 2012 interview:
    More Details Hide Details I was riding my BMX bike a lot and then there were some neighborhood kids that would, kinda, skate and I would check them out; and I used to come home from school every day and just stare at 'em, you know? And I would walk by and just watch them skate. They told me this story... I guess I'd be, like, "Hey, let me try your board", and I would grab their board and would just try and boardslide the curb and go all crazy on it... Something happened, my bike got stolen, and I got a board off one of the kids, and, from that moment on, it was just, like, full blown While in Arizona, Muska first met and spent time skateboarding with professional skateboarder Erik Ellington prior to both of their careers. Muska eventually moved to Mission Beach in San Diego, California, US with very little money, a sketch book, and a portable cassette player to further pursue skateboarding and art.
    In November 2012, Skin Phillips (Editor-in-chief of Transworld SKATEboarding magazine) described Muska as "one of the most marketable pros skateboarding has ever seen".

    More Details Hide Details In response to the matter of his influence on skateboarding, Muska stated in response: I’d like to think that I’ve brought something to the table.

    More Details Hide Details Muska has designed the signature shoe models, the Skytop, "Skytop II" (2009), and "Skytop III"; a low-cut version was also released. All of the Skytop designs were created in collaboration with footwear designer Josh Brubaker and were initially perceived as outlandish by Muska's peers in the industry.
    After he left C1RCA, Muska subsequently founded the Supra footwear company in 2006 with Angel Cabada from One Distribution (owner of the KR3W apparel brand).
    More Details Hide Details The Supra footwear brand has been endorsed by Muska since the company's inception, and Muska's first Supra signature model—the "Skytop"—was one of the first team rider models that was released.

    More Details Hide Details Following his move to Element, Muska stated "I am very excited about joining the Element family! I look forward to this new chapter in my skateboarding career... And you can bet on it that we are going to make some big things happen."

  • 1998
    Age 20
    When the "éS Muska" signature model was released in 1998, it was a popular product in the footwear market, as Muska was an especially popular figure in skateboarding culture during the late 1990s (the shoe was designed with a hidden "stash pocket" in the tongue of the shoe for particularly valuable items).
    More Details Hide Details
    Following the issues at Toy Machine, Muska joined the then-fledgling Shorty's brand. Muska was chosen to develop the Shorty's skateboard deck division and the company thrived as a result.
