SAMUEL CHRISTENSSON

Years Snowboarding: Since 1997 – 20 years!

 

Snowboard set up:

Santa Cruz DEATHPOOL SKULL wide 159/163 for backcountry

Santa Cruz ROCK HAND 157 for park

Santa Cruz HELLKAT 156 for rails and street

 

Favorite trick: Miller flip

 

Favorite spot to ride: Now I live on the west coast of Norway and I love to explore the mountains here. A really sick spot here is Folgefonna glacier, where you have the perfect combo of slushy park riding in the day and chilling by the ocean in the evening.

 

Favorite rider: The guy on the hill with the biggest smile on his face is my favorite! Joakím Baldó from Spain is the most motivated rider I know, he lives in a tent in Norway all summer just to snowboard.

 

Favorite snowboard movie: I get really stoked by watching edits from The Yawgoons! They really make something good out of nothing.

 

What has snowboarding taught me: Snowboarding is a perfect way to travel the world, to see new places and to meet new people. This has taught me to really appreciate our beautiful nature and to enjoy these moments together with friends.

 

What are the main goals of my snowboarding career: To keep being motivated and have fun on my board together with friends until I’m grey and old!

 

3 things I can’t live without: Good food, love, snow
