His name’s Xavier but it should be “Gnarlier”

By on September 23, 2014

There’s a lot of really good snowboarders out there these days, but one must ask: What’s makes a great snowboarder? Is it all the spins and antics they pull off in their local snowboard park? Is it scoring covers and centerspreads in the latest snowboard magazine or blog? Is it the guy taking the craziest lines down the steeps? Or is it simply the one having the most fun? Sure, it might be a combination of all of those things listed above, but after watching Xavier De Le Rue’s segment in the movie NATION, we think he might be one of the best we’ve ever seen. You be the judge.
