Whenever a new Candite Thovex video drops, you know that I’m going to post it on ADAPT. The Frenchman is simply a wizard on skis—be it snow, sand, grass or water (yep…I said water).
In this latest ‘Behind The Scenes’ video, Thovex takes on the artificial waves of the Wavegarden in Spain’s Basque Country and Blighty’s very own man-made wave up in Snowdonia, Wales.
It’s not the first time that someone has tried to ski waves. Former pro freeskier Chuck Patterson was probably one of the first to merge surfing and skiing back in 2000.
As usual, though, Thovex brings his unique style to the ‘sport’ and rose to the occasion. Following a few wipeouts along the way, he threw in a double (or at least a one and a half) backflip for good measure.
So, put on those ski goggles, hit play and sit back for three minutes of wave skiing magic.
