Don’t be fooled by the slow, overcast beginning to this edit as Arthur Longo and Markus Keller go absolutely BALLISTIC in the second half of this new Vans edit from France.
Can you imagine if you could snowboard this well? Boosting front 3′s off natural hits and absolutely sending back 7s and double corks into the softest powder. It’s a feeling that most of us will never get to experience ourselves but it’s sure as hell won’t do us any harm watching these guys do it instead.
Arthur has spent much of the last season focused on contests and the Olympics and it’s so rad to see him back in the backcountry and going as big as ever. Dude has got so much talent it’s unreal. Markus has diverted more of his focus towards filming in recent years and he’s looking as solid as ever in this one. Nice work fellas!
With a long period of contests, injuries and intense trainings, Arthur doesn’t really reach his goal at the Olympics. After spending so much time riding the pipe, all he really needs was to be “out there” in the back country. Snow was pretty good at his home spot so he invited his good fellow “all montains ripper” Markus Keller for a little journey in the French Alps.That’s what they did in a week. It seems like Arthur’s batteries are definitely reloaded.
