Chipper Bro

Chipper Bro Chipper Bro II If you've ever had the honor of walking into the Patagonia offices in Ventura, CA and being greeted by the guy pictured above - Chipper - then you should consider yourself a lucky son of a bitch. And chances are good that you'll never forget The Nicest And Most Enthusiastic Man In The World. Read a great interview with Chip "Chipper Bro" Bell, the 11 time (!) World Frisbee Freestyle Champion at Patagonia's great blog/site, The Cleanest Line. When you're done there, rush over and WATCH THIS.
Craig – How did you come to work at Patagonia? Chip – I had just finished a ten-year tour with the Pro Frisbee® Freestyle circuit and was looking for a job. I heard that Patagonia was hiring, so I applied and they hired me. I was super stoked to find out that the company provided benefits because I was newly married with a baby on the way. Craig – You are an 11-time World Frisbee Freestyle Champion. How did you get involved in the sport? Chip – Frisbee Freestyle was considered a cool, alternative sport in the late ‘70s. I started playing with friends in Santa Barbara, which was the mecca for Freestyle enthusiasts. Eventually my passion became a livelihood and I traveled all over the world with my team. We were world champions for over ten years. This is my thirty-third year as a pro.

    Nice find on the video. And you are correct – one of the nicest and most stoked individuals I’ve ever met.
