Think Thank has put together a video commemorating Alaskan snowboarder Chris Larson, with clips pulled from his Think Thank segments over the years. Chris was a beloved friend to many, and an electrifying snowboarder, whose distinctive trick and spot selection made for raw and unforgettable video parts. Relive them in this video.

RIP Chris Luca Larson. 6/6/91 – 4/12/20
From Think Thank:
Chris Luca Larson grew up on video creating some of the most ground breaking snowboarding segments of all time. His tight knit group of friends were there with him, filming, snowboarding, laughing and shoveling together. This video isn’t meant to be the ultimate retrospective of Larson or shed light on why he left us so early. Rather this video is so we can celebrate his accomplishments as a snowboarder as well as just see and hear him again whenever we need to be with our friend.
Please visit www.larsonrides.com to learn more about Chris and about the Larson Grommet Grant Scholarship Fund. “Each year we will grant a snowboard school scholarship, a board, boots and bindings to a young rider who is inspired to ride.”
We didn’t just lose Larson to suicide this year, we (the Think Thank / snowboarding family) also lost Jaeger Bailey. That’s two bright lights snuffed out way too early. Please visit, learn and or donate on behalf of Larson and Jaeger to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention here.
And most importantly above all else please reach out to each other and love each other with the time we have together.
