The Endless Wave // A Surfer’s Journey from Ocean Break to River Wave

By Stio Mountain on

 

Landlocked mountain towns aren’t always known for their water culture. But for San Diego native and Montana transplant Jack Christiansen, the waterways of the Rockies present the perfect opportunity to reimagine the sport he grew up learning to love: surfing. From ocean break to river wave, Jack’s spirit and passion for surfing creates brand new possibilities for play in the mountains.
