Col du Galibier Longboard Opening

After a harsh winter, the mythical passes of the French Alps were opened and it was time to visit Col Du Galibier for the grand longboard opening!

After a harsh winter, the mythical passes of the French Alps were opened and it was time to visit Col Du Galibier between Savoy and Hautes Alpes for the grand longboard opening!

The crew said goodbye to their snowboards and skis, and replaced them with their longboard gear to tackle this sixth highest mountain pass, with an altitude of 2,645 metres above sea level.

To us the high peaks, the altitude, the lunar mountains and the endless runs that bend are home to the most enduring riders.

For me these kinds of sessions are moments of true expression, while the riders Pierre Hardillier, Benjamin Sornin, Alex Martin, Yanis Markarian, Elton Vejux, Augustin Joan Montes, Alice Bonnet and Arnaud Tisserand got a chance to enjoy their freedom, and together the whole trip took on another dimension.

Author:

Born in 1979 in Lyon, I now live in Savoie, between Chambery and Torino, and works wherever the wind carries me. My passion for photography, my study as general mechanics, my experience in mountain work, seven winters of ski-patrol and several years of freelance graphic made me a freelance photographer for over 10 years. Practicing and passionate about alternative sports, snow to road through the singles mountains, my world is clearly inspired by what is commonly called the boardculture. This eclectic passive today is an asset that I transpose Image, report to the action, but always with the desire that my pictures tell stories, always happy to diversity and spontaneity of exchanges authorized by that passion for art that I have the chance to practice.
