Knut is one half of the talented Christoffersen twins, hailing from the deep countryside of Norway. A rail slaying nice-guy known for his technical skills and his great personality. Easily described as humble and happy, and with a great love for snowboarding. These are the things that make him an awesome guy, and a great shredder. He's like a Fun-gun loaded up with silver bullets ready to kill any rail that crosses his path, and he does it with a smile, and that's really fucking cool in my eyes. It's actually about time that he got some recognition for his effort on his board, cause he's been pretty fucking good for ages... Yeah Knut, happy to hear you got this check out!
