Xavier De Le Rue: Dispatch 2
We are here sitting in the living room of the boat and it feels like we are back in the storm, except that the boat is dead calm. The vessel is laying on it’s side on a 25-degree angle since this morning when we got stuck on the shallow bottom approaching a line in a little hidden bay. The boat has actually been seriously stuck since this morning and we are waiting for the tide to come back up to it’s full position so eventually maybe we will able to get it out of here… Haha, no big deal….the captain is fairly confident. We should hit the high tide point soon and get out of this trap.
In the mean time, we still managed to hit that big line we were aiming for. The snow wasn’t as good as last night’s, but the surroundings were definitely super impressive and made for a great experience.
We’re starting to feel really comfortable with the snow. It is really perfect to both climb and ride – reeeeallly steep terrain. We have two amazing faces, just waiting for us to go and get them… Definitely way higher standard of riding than what I was expecting. We have been incredibly lucky with the weather, and we are making the most of every second of our adventure.
Xavier about to drop
The team is a great combination of talent, and the long days really give us the chance to try to capture the immense beauty of the peninsula. One thing that is tiring here it is how much we keep repeating to each other how incredible it is…
I feel so lucky to be a part of this trip, and I can finally feel released from all the pressure that I’ve had on my shoulders in the last few months putting the trip together. And by the way….the boat just got out of its trap so we are sailing off to some more adventures!
Thanks for tuning in!
