We were sent in this season edit from Facu Vial Sotomayor, a Argentinian snowboarder that was based in Europe for a few years before he headed back home. It seems this week is the week of the omniboarder as Facu’s got some skills on the ol’ skateboard to boot.
There’s just something about RJD2 that casts our minds back to the early 2000’s skate and snowboard films. When pants were still baggy, instagram was something a drug dealer would say to let you know he delivered and men were men.
But, we digress. There’s some heavy riding in this from Facu, and it’s always sick to see riders from emerging countries in the snowboard scene. Apart from Manuel Diaz, who arguably is one of the only riders to break out of Latin America, they seem to be criminally under represented when it comes to riders.
