“As a snowboarder, I think it’s fair to say that there is a magical relationship with your board. When you look at your board, you think of all the adventures that you have had together or that you will have, all those magic moments, all those crazy moments…. I always wanted to build a board from scratch and the dream comes true.”

Merci to French big mountain icon Xavier de Le Rue for taking us step by step through building a prototype of his new Rossignol XV. Very cool to see Xavier take a purpose built directional big mountain snowboard from the design stage to testable product. Fascinating to understand the evolutionary changes of his signature board with minor tweaks to maximize his performance on the most intimidating terrain on earth.
