Christopher "Chippa" Wilson all but showed up out of thin air. One day no one had heard of him, and the next everyone was talking about his video parts and he was gracing the pages of every surf publication out there. No stranger to hard work driven by passion, Chippa was a carpenter before becoming a pro surfer, and the creativity of his former life comes through in his current one. On dry land Chippa is a calm and humble guy, but when he's in the water he's anything but. He's got a style that's explosive, powerful and experimental making him one of our favorites to watch. Chippa brings his unique approach in life to surfing as well as product feedback, he continually has his finger on the pulse of what’s happening and is a continuous influence on the Nixon brand.
