Louif Paradis. That is all you need to press play. The phenom-turned-father spent time around home this past season with Youri Desjardins Cloutier, Frank April, and Phil Jacques for their latest project, Patches. As always, it is a must watch that makes you feel like you must ride. Don’t get it twisted, with all the projects dropping, make sure you spend some extra time with this one.
“A winter spent entirely at home, in Quebec, is something I hadn’t done in over 15+ years. Normally, I go somewhere new every other week, chasing dream spots and ideal conditions all around the world. This year was different on so many levels. We were constrained to reinvent our surroundings, to look for hidden corners we had missed in the past, and revisit some of the classics that we thought we were done with. It also pushed us to enjoy every little moment spent on and off the board. This video shows what has kept me sane and happy during the past 12 months, friends, family, and playing with gravity.” – Louif Paradis
