Deeper in Antarctica: Jeremy Jones and Xavier De Le Rue score some big lines
By Xavier De Le Rue | November 17th, 2009
The boat is rolling through the Drake Passage.... We just left yesterday and all I can say about that trip is that this place is like something never seen before. We've had it amazingly good, we've had at least a little bit of sun everyday and most of all discovered this surprisingly powerful place.
The variety of the terrain, the snow quality and the challenges we've been going for have made this trip really special. It's been once again a pleasure to have Jeremy as a partner as we really enjoyed sharing our skills in these intense moments.
I won't say more for the moment but these pics will give you a rough idea of our trip.
