Chris Christenson is coming to Pukas

Christenson Surfboards at Pukas Surf

In 1992, Chris Christenson’s shaping career began with a six-year apprenticeship to shaping legend, Dick Brewer, perfecting the skill of shaping boards under Brewer, and the influence of his then neighbour, Skip Frye. His board designs reflect these influences with a combination of classic lines and progressive creativity. Walk through his factory and you will see an eclectic range of boards under construction..longboard next to a gun, a glider next to mid length..single fins..keel fins and thrusters.

For a short time Chris Christenson will be shaping boards at the Pukas factory in Northern Spain so if you have always lusted over one of surfboards now is the time to get a custom order in..  Here’s just a few of the models available…

The month of June 2016 sees Californian master shaper Chris Christenson’s arrival to the Basque country, Spain, where he will spend the month at the Olatu factory to shape some of his marvellous creations for the likes of you and I.  We at Down the Line Surf Co. are stoked to be the exclusive UK distributor for Christenson surfboards and are taking bookings now for custom orders. These will be shaped by Chris himself whilst he is at the Olatu factory. The boys at Olatu also shape and finsh our Channel Islands, Lost and Pukas surfboards to an exceptional standard.

Chris is well reknowned for shaping serious big wave craft for the likes of Greg Long and Ian Walsh, but his mid lengths and fishes have been a firm favourite of ours at Down the Line for years. (I don’t get much opportunity to ride a gun at Godrevy, and my cajonies are far too small for one anyway.)

If you want to get your hands on any of these strictly limited boards, get in contact now to ask any questions and find out more.

If you want to find out more about what types of boards he shapes, have a look at some of the models available in his website right here  and what we currently stock in our shop.

The board was 8’6″ made for Mark Healey by Chris Christenson..both the board and Healey survived the impact..
