The North Face - Mission Antarctic

When Xavier de Le Rue convinced his main partners The North Face and Swatch to help him set up a dream trip he had in mind, he didn't think it would end up being that good. The expedition with Lucas Debari, on a small boat, to seek the best playground down in Antarctic was a great success.

"I went there out of curiosity, but I still remember that surprise on the first morning when I opened my eyes over the peninsula. Antarctica is the most powerful, beautiful, unexplored riding spot on the whole planet." - The North Face snowboarder, Xavier De Le Rue.

Captured by TimeLine Films crew and Renan Ozturk from Camp 4 Collective. From November 21st through December 21st, 2012, Mission Antarctic was a journey of snowboard exploration. Team snowboarders Xavier de le Rue and Lucas DeBari set sail from the Falklands, through the Drake Passage and around the Fjords of the Antarctic peninsula in search of the best lines to ride on the continent.

The movie is currently premiering around Europe and it will be out on iTunes early December 2013.
