“If such a thing as a California Action Sports Hall of Fame existed, Chuck Patterson would win unanimous induction on the first ballot.” – California’s Adventure Sports Journal
Unlike some athletes who excel at one sport, Chuck does it all. A master of multiple disciplines – skiing, snowboarding, big wave surfing, stand up paddle, kiteboarding, windsurfing, foil surfing and speed flying– Patterson has been charging mountains and chasing waves as a full time sponsored athlete and stuntman for more than 30 years.
A self-proclaimed addict to anything made of snow or water, Chuck constantly pushes the boundaries on what’s possible – from surfing Hawaii’s 40-60 foot waves at Peahi (aka Jaws) and Mavericks in Northern California on custom snow skis, to paddling alongside great white sharks in their natural element, Chuck feels most at home exploring mother nature's playground.
Beginning his passion for sports at the ripe age of two and a half years old, Chuck is a jack-of-all-trades waterman; a connoisseur of big mountain adventure. He’s also passionate about giving back. He’s actively involved as a volunteer and ambassador for both Miracle for Kids and TheraSurf which allow him to work and inspire kids with illnesses and special needs through sports.
"They don't make many units in this model with all the features and options, so whenever he drives by, if the door opens (and it usually does), jump in quick cuz his foot is only on the gas pedal."
