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 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 meters 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.
