Xavier de Le Rue is best known as a big-mountain snowboarder, whether in competition on the Freeride World Tour or in ski/snowboard films. He’s won the FWT three times, and has appeared in films by TGR, Sherpas Cinemas, and many others. Clearly, the man knows what he is doing. Instead of keeping his knowledge to himself, de Le Rue is sharing his expertise in the web series “How To XV,” in which he shares tips and tricks learned over 20 years of professional snowboarding.
Xavier is a living legend, and his commitment to encouraging the next generation of big-mountain snowboarders is awesome to see. Few are better at managing risk while sending big lines, and his ability to balance the serious and playful sides of the sport is second to none. Thanks for the tips, Xavi!
