Will Lavigne is one of the most humble snowboarders out there, which is really impressive because he has plenty of reason to be vocal about his on-board accomplishments. This French Canadian rail savant’s video parts have been featured in influential movies, from the Sugarshack films to Rome Snowboards’ mid-aughts team videos, to 2014 SNOWBOARDER Movie of the Year, Deja Vu. In each offering, Monsieur Lavigne has continued to raise the bar and provide a plethora of masterful maneuvers. Will’s electric trick selection in the streets is mirrored by his taste in the music that he prefers, with a mix of classics and contemporary artists, as well a healthy dose of tunes from his home province. So, scroll down and add a few of this Quebecois rider’s song selections to your personal playlist, because we’ll gladly take some direction, or re-direction as the case may be, from Will.
