Chris Christenson, owner of Christenson Surfboards, has been shaping boards for over 20 years. In the surf industry, there are few that are as highly regarded among everyday riders and professionals alike for the amount of care, precision and spirit he puts into each board that leaves his shaping bay. But Chris is also a born-again snowboarder. Having rediscovered the surf-inspired shapes of Gentemstick's Taro Tamai, Christenson spends part of his winter ripping pow by day and shaping by night at his cabin outside of Mammoth Lakes, California and thinks craftsmanship is making a triumphant return in snowboarding.
