TRIP/ Xavier De Le Rue...on his way back from Antarctica paradise!

Riders in this news :  Xavier DE LE RUE

Xavier just coming back from Antarctica, he tell us more on his trip: " The boat is rolling through the Drake Passage.... We just left yesterday and all I can say about that trip is that this place is like something never seen before. We've had it amazingly good, we've had at least a little bit of sun everyday and most of all discovered this surprisingly powerful place.
The variety of the terrain, the snow quality and the challenges we've been going for have made this trip really special. It's been once again a pleasure to have Jeremy as a partner as we really enjoyed sharing our skills in these intense moments.
I won't say more for the moment but these pics will give you a rough idea of our trip.
Cheers,  XV    "

Thanks so much to playmakercommunication.com for the pictures... Matt, you're the MAN

TRIP Antartica / Drake passage... check!!

Riders in this news :  Xavier DE LE RUE

"It's been two days since we've left Ushuaia. We still haven't reach the peninsula and I've spent most of my time lying in bed to avoid the sea sickness. I've puked a bunch of times.... but the sea seems to be getting better as we are approaching South Georgia Island. It’s quite unreal the atmosphere there is, crossing the famous Drake passage, (worse crossing in the world) surrounded by these massive waves. We've seen a few whales already, the crew is really excited despite the long journey... Can't wait to see what's on the other side...!"

TRIP/ Xavier is back to Antarctica

Riders in this news :  Xavier DE LE RUE

As you might remember we tried last year to reach and hopefully ride the wonderful untouched steeps of the Antarctica Peninsula... Unfortunately, we got on the boat in Ushuaia but stayed three days ashore for mechanical reasons until we got told that the boat could not be repaired....
We are back, and not for the least!
Jeremy Jones and myself along with the relentless film crew are ready for new up coming adventures! Two movies, mainly Lives of the Artists 2, but some of the action will end up in DEEPER as well, Jeremy’s project. We are about to board the clipper adventure for a 40 hours boat ride across the scary "Drake Passage", supposed to be the worst crossing on the planet.... After that we'll have 7 days of actual riding...
We got split boards, all the hard gear we could ever need, we are fired up... All we can hope for are friendly weather and snow conditions. Let's see if mother Antarctica is willing to let us glide on the last continent...
Fingers crossed!

Elias Elhardt is the new comer of this season for sure.
After his great ride in Zurich for the freestyle.ch, Elias came at freestyle.Berlin with a huge motivation. The Saturday evening, he won the crossover session with a massive bs 1080 double cork.
Congrats Elias for this nice result.
