How Xavier de le Rue Manages Fear While Shredding "Enter Video-Game Mode"

When you watch Xavier de le Rue carving down near vertical faces with extended no fall zones, it’s enough to induce panic attacks so it’s hard to imagine how the Frenchman keeps his emotions in check as he negotiates the most dangerous lines on the face of the earth.

Here’s his checklist to not losing your shit mid-line:

-understand fear is an asset

-evaluate your skills against the risk

-pre-visualize the dangers

-find solutions

-make your decision

….its okay to say NO and turn back

-commit to the line

-calm yourself

-make the drop

-enter “video-game mode”

…..Video-Game Mode is something you have to work up to. Make sure to confer with friends that your video-game mode is worthy before trying it out with exposure.  Thanks Xavier!
