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.
He performed his first backflip during a joint skiing with Mike Douglas. It was in Alta. The Canadian without any efforts and difficulties mastered a new jump for him and then began to regularly perform it.
He was a winner of various competitions and championships from 1999 to 2014, including Red Bull Line Catcher, US Open Slopestyle and others.

Of course, Jean-Philippe Oakler is a prominent representative of freeriders. He was one of the first to perform grab, founded the so-called “new school” of skiing. He is the creator of the rider brand Armada Skins, whose products have spread to more than forty countries around the world. Okler is not the only one who has been involved in the development of brand products. Other riders helped him in this: JF Cusson, Boyd Isley, Julien Rainier and Tanner Hall. Also involved was photographer Chris Connell. This was not JP’s first skiing experience. He worked closely with Salomon, who are known for their Salomon 1080 ski model. It was then that Oclair had a clear understanding of what quality and comfortable skis should be like.

Skis and freestyle were not the only hobby in the life of an extremal. From an early age, JP was fond of mountain biking. He loved to drive around the city on his two-wheeled friend and perform simple tricks right on the go: jumping over curbs and overtaking buses. In the summer, when there was no snow, thanks to the bike, JP maintained himself in good physical shape. In addition, he was fond of surfing and mountain climbing. As they say, a talented person is talented in everything.

However, JP was not limited to the sport itself and the design of sports equipment. He is the founder of the non-profit organization Alpine Initiatives, which allows winter sports fans around the world to unite among themselves. In addition, he made a lot of videos and films about freestyle.

Jean-Philippe Oakler has starred in several films from such studios as MSP, Sherpas Cinema, Poor Boyz and TGR. With the release of the film “All I can” of the aforementioned Sherpas Cinema studio, J.P. became popular in Russia. In it, he participated in an episode with street skiing. In it, he freely moved around the city and performed tricks, using the urban landscape as efficiently as possible. In the movie “Into the mind” in the company of Tom Walish, he showed something similar, but the shooting took place at night. Also worth mentioning are “Ski Movie”, “Yeah Dude”, “Superheroes of Stoke”, “Oil & Water” and many others. Sometimes J.P. participated in the filming as a producer or even a second director. Sometimes he even edited films.

September 29, 2014 this brave and incredibly talented guy died. A Canadian athlete died with his friend Andreas Frances during a climb to the top of Monte San Lorenzo in Chile. Both of them were covered with an avalanche.
