We’re psyched to welcome another Bluebird ambassador to the fold!
Chris grew up on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina and still calls the area home. He began surfing and traveling for waves at age 14 and hasn’t looked back. At 23, he’s already an accomplished surfer and waterman. These days he spends his time in search of the next east coast swell and tests gear as a surf ambassador for Patagonia. We’re excited to have Chris join the team as we believe he embodies the spirit of Bluebird -- passionately pursuing his craft of surfing and enjoying the outdoors.
Here’s a quick interview with Chris:
1. Favorite place to be on a sunny day?
My favorite place in the world to be on a sunny day is at home on the beach with all my friends. We have the best beach days here, everyone brings a bunch of boards, coolers of drinks and food. Your friends are your family around here and everyone comes together and just enjoys the beach for what it has to offer that day, be it grilling burgers or surfing fun waves!
2. Favorite surf trip?
I love indonesia. I've been twice, and I can't wait to go back!
3. Tell us about your home break in the Outer Banks.
The Outer Banks is a really unique stretch of sandbars. We stick out the farthest on the east coast so we have a smaller continental shelf and pick up a good amount of swell directions. There aren't a lot of structures to build up consistent sandbars so it's a constant search to find the spot. Hurricane season is what you wait for all year, big barrels right on the beach. You definitely learn how to get tubed growing up here.
4. Next on the travel list?
Most likely going down to Central America sooner than later. It's getting to be south swell season!
