Welcome Home Vol. II was the second chapter of Rip Curl riders’ adventures on the Search mission. Once again, the brand joined forces with French Kiss Production and Freestudios Creative Media Production to release this new snowboarding movie. The snowboard team visited fellow riders around the globe to find those backcountry gems that dreams are made of.

The movie showcases riding in Argentina (Matias Radaelli), Germany and Austria (Elias Elhardt), Switzerland (Martin Seiller) and finally Sweden with the legendary area of Riksgransen. The riders wanted to go back to the essence of a ‘feel good’ road trip and found themselves in lesser known territories, spending a lot of time riding out of mountain refuges. This proved to be the way to get the best out of their skills, as you will see…

The film crew was as always made up of Julien Mata, Olivier Pictet and even got Jaime Benicio as a rookie. For photos, the cream of the crop once again consisted of Rémi Petit, Eric Bergeri, Matthieu Georges and is completed a newby, Jérôme Tanon. They had to put it all out to come back with the best pictures and film, Olivier coming in first place with a puke-athon (seven times!) during a heliboarding day… unforgettable!
