While his snowboarding looks like he's having nothing but fun, this interview with Snowboard Mag delves deeper into Chris's past and some of the not-so-fun experiences that have shaped him into who he his today.
On a personal Pika note, Chris is a sort of business genius. I remember when he was selling DANGs out of a shoebox at HCSC around 2005 or 06. I was like damn, these things have a good profit margin, store/ship easily, are a good value and aren't as seasonal as a lot of other gear being sold at the coaches sale. But most of all, it was and still is the culture of snowboarding that Chris breathes into each and every pair with every video shot he gets, with every rider he hooks up and every kid he stokes out that is pure genius. Chris's street smarts have helped him pave the way, and his natural talent has helped him have fun while doing it.
