Candide Thovex is an almost mythical creature, a true anomaly in skiing. A bad ass freak of nature…plain and simple. Not only is this Frenchman incredible, but his video edits genius. This movie is art, exemplified by sport.
Regardless of the venue, Candide is, above all else, a full-time innovator. He is an entrepreneur and film maker. His unique combination of power, style, grace and imagination allow him to adapt to his surroundings as if he designed them as a huge terrain park perfectly for himself. His skiing is, quite simply, beautiful.
Special Thanks to Quiksilver for giving us this full length Candide Thovex movie documenting his 32 years spent pushing the envelope and redefining “possible.” Can’t wait for Part II.
