Get your gear ready! The third season of Xavier De Le Rue’s YouTube series, “How to XV,” is live. In collaboration with Swatch, the professional snowboarder shows viewers how to build on their skills and safely try out new tricks and activities on- and off-piste.
Some of the highlights this year take snowboarder off the trail, like “freeriding for beginners,” “riding safely in steep terrain,” “how to snowkite” (his third most popular video) and “nailing a butter in powder.”
As with the previous two seasons, Xavier will share the skills and expert know-how he’s picked up over the past 25+ years. His YouTube channel has over 15,000 subscribers – more than twice as many as last year – and by interacting with Xavier in the comments, they can recommend other topics they’d like to see him cover in the “How to XV” series. Fans love learning from him because his videos are clear, easy to follow, short and fun.
“After 22 years as a professional snowboarder I like to thing that I have learnt a thing or two! And the goal of How To is to share these tips and tricks with you, whether you are just starting to explore the backcountry or are a seasoned pro” said Xavier.
Not only do his videos cover tricks or new ways of riding, Xavier also helps beginner and experienced riders make sure they are using the right equipment and that they are putting safety first. On his YouTube channel page, it’s easy to find the videos that cover the topics that interest you most – so you can take full advantage of Xavier as your personal pro instructor.
