KOHL CHRISTENSEN BIO-
Growing up on the East Side of Oahu, Kohl Christensen is not your typical professional surfer. A contractor by trade, but a big-wave surfer by heart, the majority of his days are spent either installing solar panels or working on his organic farm where he grows everything from tangerines to avocados. Oh, and Kohl occasionally breaks up the monotony by paddling into some of the biggest waves on the planet.
