Welcome back to Idle Hands with Chris Christenson. In this 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 up on Mammoth 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."
