BIO

Christian Andersen, better known as the Polar Bear, grew up close to the beach in a small town called Klitmøller, (Cold Hawaii). Growing up, he always had a love for sports, whether it was Football or Skateboarding.

He fell in love with surfing at the age of 9 and quickly got into Stand Up Paddling at the age of 10, and he hasn’t looked back since. Growing up right next to Casper Steinfath allowed Christian to follow in his footsteps. Having Casper as a mentor made him destined to start competing on the international scene at a young age. Christian’s most memorable moments out of many in the sport were competing in the Red Bull Heavy Water as the youngest competitor and winning the ISA Junior World Title in 2019.

Even though the Danish athlete mostly competes at the highest level in SUP Racing, he is a waterman at heart, and he enjoys all forms of water sports. If the waves are good you will find him riding his shortboard or SUP Surf, if it´s windy you can find him out Wing Foiling or on a downwinder.

It might not show on land, but when it’s time to compete, Christian is a super competitive athlete. He is dedicated and works very hard to achieve his goal of becoming the best in the world.
