The flight of Chippa


His name his Chris, but people call him Chippa. He's from Cabarita Beach, Australia. It's not far from Tweed Heads and the Gold Coast, but far enough. He runs with a hip crowd. He likes tattoos and big rotations. He doesn't much care for competition or convention. It's better if we let him tell his story. Here it is.
