As you may know, Xavier De Le Rue convinced The North Face and Swatch to help send him and his buddie Lucas Debari to ride the mostly untouched peaks of Antarctica. Here’s episode 1 of the trip. Even though there’s zero snowboarding it still manages to be fully nuts.
“It’s probably the steepest line that I’ve ever seen that wasn’t a sheet of ice,” says a clearly humbled Lucas Debari at one point. Maybe hold back with the ollies on that bad boy…
When Xavier de Le Rue convinced his main partners The North Face and Swatch to help him set up a dream trip he had in mind, he didn’t think it would end up being that good. The expedition with Lucas Debari, on a small boat, to seek the best playground down in Antarctic was a great success. The movie will come out next Fall, here is a Sneak Preview of what happened down there. Captured by TimeLine Films crew and Renan Ozturk from Camp 4 Collective. Next Mission Antarctic episode will be premiered at Verbier during Freeride World Tour final ( march 23rd) and put online right after.
