Jules is best known for his prowess in the backcountry, spending most of his season chasing the best snow conditions all over the globe. Not one for wearing a competition jersey, Jules has backed up his talents with stunning video sections with Absinthe including: Futureproof (2005), More (2006), Optimistic (2007) and Ready (2008).
Jules’ section in More documented his first ever line in AK and showed his true flair for riding a snowboard. He goes flat out, pedal to the metal, hitting as many features on his way down whilst wearing his trademark grin. He now joins Nordic transition specialist, Henning Marthinsen and the French/Polynesian pipe slayer, Gary Zebrowski on the Nike ACG Global Team.
Speaking from his hometown in Portes Du Soleil, Jules had this to say. “Every morning I wake up, I try to keep in mind the fact I get paid to go snowboarding. It’s the best job in the world! When I ride, I try to adapt my technique to the terrain to draw my own lines and stomp my tricks. I follow my own path. Without the full support of Nike ACG, it would be really difficult for me to seize these moments of happiness.”
