For most pro riders, a lockdown spent in your home city might spell disaster for your winter plans. No so for Quebecois street sensation Louif Paradis. The Salomon team rider made the most of his first season spent in his home city in over 15 years and, together with filmer Anthony Drolet, put together this heavy street segment from some of the city’s best spots.
“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.”
