Boris Mouton is a young French ripper who’s been stoking us out with his blend of stylish, technical riding since he was a grom. He’s now man-sized, so we decided it was time to throw a shaka his way in the shape of this Blowing Up profile…
Where did you grow up riding?
I grew up riding in Grimentz, Switzerland.
What was the scene there like?
Just my own little paradise.
Park, Powder, Street, Contests, Filming – what describes your riding best?
Actually I am pretty much a park and contest rider, but I also love going into the backcountry.
How did you score your first sponsors?
I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was riding the park in Grimentz, which is a park sponsored by Nidecker, and so the shapers talked about me to them. They didn’t tell me anything and then one day they brought me a brand new board… I was so stoked! And now Nidecker is still helping me through my way of snowboarding.
