TRAVIS RICE – REAL EXTREME!

In 2018, the American athlete Travis Rice celebrated his 36th birthday. Dry statistics, dry numbers. There are many talented people in the world who have shown themselves to be profitable in one or another sport, many champions, prize-winners, and laureates. And yet, a few units can rightfully be called the prodigies of any particular discipline, the nuggets that were born for the sake of it alone. Rice was apparently born for a snowboard. But who knows, maybe the snowboard has arisen specifically to reveal the brilliant abilities of this guy from Wyoming!

Travis has been familiar with snow since childhood. His father was engaged in a risky craft – he worked as a mountain rescuer, and skiing became for the boy the same familiar household item as for most children – a bicycle. The snowboard turned for Rice into the meaning of life a little later – at the age of 18. Two Continue reading

JEAN-PHILIPPE AUCLAIR – REAL EXTREME!

Freestyler Jean-Philippe Oakler was born in Saint-Foix, Quebec on August 22, 1977. He was known by the nickname J.P. At a young age he showed talent in the traditional disciplines of skiing. However, all the basic rules and requirements established by FIS severely limited his freedom, so JP left the classic freestyle and started inventing his own tricks.

He had like-minded people like Vincent Dorion and Shane Zox, JF Cusson and Mike Douglas. Newspapers dubbed the team “The New Canadian Air Force.” The young extremal regularly won prizes in big air. At the age of 34, he moved to live in the mountainous Switzerland – the dream of any skier.

In order to get permission to perform new tricks on the mogul highway, J.P. sometimes had to do paperwork for several months. Continue reading

JEREMY JONES – REAL EXTREME!

Jeremy Jones is a legend in the world of skateboarding, a man who managed to say a new word in skating on a snowy slope. One of the main promoters of freeriding is the descent along unprepared routes that are outside the service area of ​​the ski industry. This requires tremendous skill from the athlete, and Jeremy certainly possesses such skill.

The future conqueror of huge peaks was born on January 14, 1975 on the island of Cape Cod, which is part of the US state of Massachusetts. Soon, the Jones family moved to Vermont, most of which is occupied by mountains (the name of the state comes from the French words “green” and “mountain”), which Jeremy himself was very happy about, constantly thinking that he now lives in the coolest place on our planet. However, acquaintance with snowboarding occurred a little later: after the next move, this time to the state of Maine, the boy finds himself in a ski resort. Continue reading
