Chris Christenson is overlapping between the surf and snowboard worlds like no one else right now. Mostly known for his surfboards, Chris also has a few boards in the Jones Snowboards line and gets much of his ocean inspiration by playing in the snow in a Sierra based cabin. He’s even shaping up a fishy number for Jordy Smith there right now.

Welcome back to Idle Hands with Chris Christenson. In this second installment, we take a ride up to the Eastern Sierras to see how he spends his time during the winter months. Chris’s passion for shaping surfboards transfers over to the snow. As an avid snowboarder and builder, he often escapes up to the mountains to find inspiration in shaping surfboards, designing snowboards and enjoying time on the mountain.

“A lot of my new (surf and snow) models come from up here. It brought a whole new momentum to my creative process. Instead of being influenced by everyone, it’s good to get up here and be isolated.”
