The world's best freeride snowboarder, seven times world champion, Xavier de la Rue goes in search of a real adventure - something deeper than just snowboarding.  In Mission Antarctic Xavier and Lucas DeBari team up with sailing legend Jerome Poncet, setting sail from the Falklands, through the Drake Passage and around the Fjords of the Antarctic peninsula in search of the best lines to ride on the continent, what Xavier calls, "the most powerful, beautiful, unexplored skiing spot on the whole planet.”

Spectacular footage of Xavier riding 60+ degree 500 ft slopes - the steepest lines he's ever seen, plumetting to the Antarctic Ocean.  The film is a really human portrayal of one of the world's best adventure sports athletes looking for a really meaningful, next big challenge.  An interesting follow-up to previous TimeLine Films 'White Noise' and 'This is My Winter'.
