Long known for his work with Transworld Surf as print editor and as host of “Cotés Cube,” Chris Coté is a major player in American surf media. His resume reads like a grab bag of industry titles. Reach in and pull out any job description and chances are he’s been there and has done that: marketing, editing, event announcing and even competing as a pro. While in years past Coté’s fan base has largely ended along US boarders, recent exploration into digital podcasts has found him a global audience through his popular Monday M.A.S.S. series.

ASBMAG chatted with Mr. Coté who is in the thick of building the eponymous Coté media brand across several new platforms and action sports. We asked Chris a few business questions and several not-so-business-like questions. We discovered what he'd use a time machine for, what he's most proud of and what it’s like to surf Kelly’s Wave.
