Rafael was born in France and grew up all over the world. He has always been active in the outdoors but didn’t actually begin to snowboard till he was 17. Now 24, he spends nearly every month chasing snow and adventure in both hemispheres. Rafael splits most of his time between Chile and North America, where he just completed his degree in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado. His plans for the 2018/2019 include going on tour for his new film Yūgen, as well as shred and film trips to Japan, Canada, Alaska, Europe and, of course, Chile.
Without eyes it would be hard to climb a mountain and enjoy the views
