Exactly one year has passed since Victor De Le Rue joined the team Nortwave & Drake, choosing for his set-up the Drake DF2 boards, Drake Reload bindings and Northwave Decade boots. One year of emotions, satisfaction, lots of laughter and great goals achieve together. Victor De Le Rue is certainly one of the best, youngest, most talended, and versatile riders of the moment. For all these reasons, Victor was invited to participate in the 20th Anniversary of the Air & Style in Innsbruck!
His extraordinary creativity, over the years created his unique identity, which is recognized over the world as a true signature, a guarantee of excellent quality and professional attitude that only a few athletes in the world are lucky to boast of. Certainly his presence in the new snowboard movie by Absinthe Films is the confirmation of all of this, as one of the oldest video production in absolute terms has decided to involve our athlete Victor De Le Rue, for the same qualities which we have just talked about …
With him, the photographer Matt Georges also took a part in this video project of Absinthe Films, considered one of the most important international names of the moment, thanks to his many publications in some of the most important magazine of the world, such as Transworld Snowboarding and OnBoard Europe.
So who better than Matt, through his eyes and his views, could reveal their opinion about our team rider Victor De Le Rue?
So, we decided to have just a light conversation with Matt, a real French guy with Sicilian origins, to give to all of you the ability to know news, datails, and opinions about Victor, from the eyes of one of the most experienced of the moment!
HELLO MATT, HOW DO YOU CHOSE TO INTRODUCE VICTOR DE LE RUE?
He is part of this new french generation that can ride everything and got lots of tricks in the bag. From all the technical doble in the backcountry to some crazy street combo to some really creative moves to some Alaska lines.
WHAT ARE THE BEST FEATURES OF VICTOR?
Victor is the kind of rider that can land couple of different Dobles on a backountry kicker and the minute after send a massive and stylish Frontside 3 One-Foot. We also shot some street stuff at the beginning of the winter and I can tell he is as good as some really famous jibbers.
CAN YOU REVEAL TO US SOME SECRETS ABOUT THE NEW PROJECT OF ABSINTHE FILMS AND VICTOR?
This is the first time thaht Victor is shooting with Absinthe. There is now a really solid european crew for Absinthe together with Wolle Nyvelt, Sylvain Bourbousson and Mat Schaer and the recent addition to Mathieu Crepel, Nils Arvidsson, and of course Victor. We shot in the Dolomites backcountry for about 2 weeks and got lots of bangers. I was really surprised by all the new tricks he can do and how much productive he can be in a day!! I have seen some insane One-Foot tricks recently. He is a machine with a creative brain!
WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF VICTOR?
He has already the name DE LE RUE, he has definitly the skills and now he just needs to show around his talent. I’m not a visionary but I’m pretty sure we will hear about him a lot those upcoming years.
