Artist: Chris Sebo
We worked with Hawaii based artist Chris Sebo to create this truly spectacular board that showcases the vibrant beauty of Hawaii. Displaying a volcano with some lava fading off into the clouds the "Paradise" skis make you think you are in Hawaii while riding the slopes. A detailed mountain with a waterfall trickling down to a swell that a surfer is shredding! At the bottom, a tiki man with the iconic hang loose sign surrounded with white hibiscus flowers. This ski features iconic Hawaiian imagery. The moonrise in Waikiki shows an interesting contrast of the depth of Hawaii and what makes it truly unique. These skis will truly take you back home, regardless of where you are on the snow shredding.
At Gilson, we sustainably source the highest quality raw materials and handcraft all of our snowboards and skis onsite here in the US. This limited edition design is paired with our best selling all mountain performance model that can be found ripping slopes all over the world. With a traditional cambered design, and a medium flex stiffness, this is the perfect pair of skis for someone who wants to take them anywhere and everywhere the mountain calls.

ARTIST BIO: Chris Sebo
In this piece, you will find 'Paradise' though Christopher Michael Sebo's eyes. Using spray paints from the can itself, using both hands at the same time, different textile materials like crumpled up newspaper, saucers, torn poster boards, bottle caps, brushes, plastic wrap and whatever else he could find that gives a more profound effect to the canvas. The tremendous detail he creates can be compared to a traditional painter creating distinguish strokes with a brush on canvas only here the techniques start very different. The process begins with a quick stoke spray paint across the canvas, then another here and there building layers of paint, then using the textile materials to rub, scrape, and blend the paint all of a sudden, like a magician with final act to awe you, a spectacular visual appears before your eyes!
Without any formal art training, Chris is consistently developing new techniques to create the desired effects with the paint that match his imagination. You can visit Chris's imagination easily just by taking a look at the wide range of paintings from realistic, surreal, fantasy-like dreamscapes, landscapes, the ocean and its waves in seascapes, wildlife even the outer space, all with expressions of tender explosiveness they seem to reflect a sense of peace and calm in each of them. Sebo's art has been showcased online, newspapers, magazines, and television shows. Enjoy Mahalo!
