Chuck Patterson is an  inspiring person. He is 6’2” and weighs 220 pounds. He competes at the pro  level in five different sports: stand up paddling, tow-in surfing, kite  surfing, skiing and snowboarding.

His bronze skin, perfect set of white teeth,  sun-bleached flock of blonde hair, and a body that appears to be made only of  muscle completes the image.

Chuck wows fellow athletes, sports fans and  spectators with a seemingly godlike ability to gracefully play with the natural  world’s violent waves and snowy mountain cliffs.

  1. Hi Chuck,
    I work for the International Shark Attack File at the University of Florida. I came across your white shark footage and would like to investigate your encounter further. I don’t necessarily agree with the standard criterion, but even a bump to a board is considered a “shark attack” if unprovoked. Do you have an email that is best for us to open a line of conversation?
    Look forward to hearing from you,

  2. Chuck, I want to use one of your pictures on my website for my slideshow, is that okay?

  3. Steve, Just learned of your Wave skiing. LOVE IT!!! Fabulous, and I want to do it really badly! Very fun looking and a great switch over for the summer season. Thanks so much for posting your discoveries and test rides hope to meet you skiing the waves soon.
