Chris Senn  

Professional Skateboarder

Originally from Costa Mesa, California, where he was born on December 11, 1972, Chris moved up to Grass Valley in Northern California at 11, where he started skating in the sixth grade when a friend brought a Powell video to school. Sessions on mini-ramps, jump ramps and garbage-style ramps brewed-up soon after. After skating for numerous board companies over the years (Powell, Toy Machine, Think, Adrenaline), Chris is now happy at home on Element.

He now lives in Hawaii, with never a thought of moving to the skateboarding industry hub of Southern California to pursue dreams of skate stardom. He's happier where he's at, living the simple life: hanging at home with wife, Michelle, and raising his kids, Anakin and Julian. His kids have carried out the Senn name and ride for Blood Wizard Skateboards out of San Francisco.

In addition to skating, Chris is very creative and talented in all areas of his life. Take his painting, for example. He can paint anything and make it look like a photograph, or go in the exact opposite direction with a full-on mind-bending abstract.

When he's not traveling the world for demos, contests or filming missions, Senn can usually be found skating with his son, Anakin, and friends. His off-board hours are usually spent painting, surfing and gardening. As for the future, Chris hopes to stay happy raising his family, skating and making a living off his artwork.

His notable accomplishments include three X-Games gold medals, being ranked 2nd in the World in 2002 behind Rodil de Araujo, Jr, being voted Thrasher Skateboard Magazine Skater Of the Year in 1995 and being a two-time world champion.
