At first thought, Chaz Ortiz may seem like an odd choice for an Aberrican Me episode. We had previously reserved this feature for guys that aren't necessarily well known for their skating and Chaz doesn't exactly fit that mold. After all, he's an established professional skater with video parts and ads and contest victories. But when you get down to what really matters, he's also just another high school senior that loves skateboarding. The common passion that we all share is something that we should all recognize - no matter how different we assume our lives are. When all those assumptions are gone and we look at what is most important, it turns out we're a lot more alike than not.
