Welcome Home Vol. II is the second chapter of the Rip Curl riders’ adventures within their Search mission. The team went from Argentina (Matti Radaelli), Germany and Austria (Elias Elhardt), the German speaking corner of Switzerland (Martin Seiller) and finally Sweden with the legendary area of Riksgransen.
Last Thursday, Lausanne welcomed the first date of the European tour. “It was so great to see all those smiles” said Darius Heristchian after the first screening in front of 200 people. This year, Quality, Comfort and Fun are the main values Rip Curl try to share on the Welcome Home Tour. All the premieres will happen in cinemas, every guest will be served free drinks and the pro team will be in the attendance to answer your requirements concerning the making of.
This is how Olivier Pictet introduced the screening on Thursday night: “Tonight, we are doing something that no longer exists. Broadcasting a 35mm film has not been attempted for 10 years. But here it is… and I am sure it is going to blow you all away”.
Furthermore, they will set up a photo exhibition to entertain the crowd and feed the Welcome Home Concept. Main photographers Eric Bergeri, Jérome Tanon, Matthieu Georges and Rémi Petit selected their favorite action and lifestyle shots. This exhibition perfectly represents the amazing time we spent in the mountains, the laughs we shared and the awesome pow we hit!
