Phil Jacques Full Part From Defenders Of Awesome 2: Stay Bad Ass By Capita
Few snowboarders can touch Phil Jacques when it comes to street riding. Part of the legendary Quebec snowboard scene, everything he does is so damn perfect. His board is always squared up on rails and his landings are bolts and straight. So sit back, put down the phone, and enjoy some righteous snowboarding.
Interview with Phil Jacques below.
Who did you have the best session with this year?
I had a bunch of really fun ones with Cocard.
What was the hardest trick to land in this video part?
I wanna say the 50-50 on the kink with the gap in the middle. I really had to concentrate on every part of the trick every try. There’s not a point in the session where it felt really comfortable. I always had to really make sure I was going over the gap.
Mad props to the Impaler kid who boardslid it! Sorry I forget your name.
Where did you go on your favorite trip this year?
I didn’t go anywhere fancy this year, but the trip to Massachussetts and New Hampshire I took with Rav and Johnny OC was really fun even though that’s where I hurt my heel.
When did you feel on top of the world this year?
Everytime I landed a trick.
When did you feel like you wanted to give up?
On the front 180 switch 50-50 on the triple kink I was having a battle and it started snowing really hard making it very difficult to see anything on the in-run. I almost lost it and gave up but I kept at it and finally got it.
How many flights did you miss?
None. Knock on wood.
Why do you love snowboarding?
Because it takes me to new places and there’s always a new challenge awaiting.
What’s next for you?
A mad case of Déjà Vu.
