Jamie Thomas, or 'The Chief' is a legendary skate pro and successful skate industry businessman. His video parts for Toy Machine Skateboards and his own brand Zero Skateboards changed skateboarding in the 90's, from the size of obstacles that were skated to the way they were filmed. Jamie Thomas was the first and only skater ever to attempt the leap of faith gap and he narrowly missed out due to snapping his board but it was still enough to put him in the history books as one of the most daring skaters ever. Jamie owns Black Box distribution, which represents Zero, Slave, Fallen, Mystery, Threat, Destroyer and New Balance shoes skate brands. Its hard to turn a corner in skateboarding where Jamie hasn't had some kind of influence. He is sponsored by Fallen, Zero, Thunder, Insight, Bones Bearings, Mob Grip and Olloclip.
