ripper :: Julien Sanchez

Julien Sanchez from Lyon/France is our latest  ripper of the month. Julien is a professional sports filmaker, photographer and ambioned windsurfer who calls the Rhône River his local playground.

In an interview he talks about his passion for windsurfing and his profession.
"I filmed my first flicks along the Rhône to document our windsurfing sessions on this powerful river. From then on I knew, that I had to go on and make this my life's work. Later, I set up a project with Jérome Houyvet, the French photographer, Keith Tebooul, Carine Cambooulives and Manu Bouvet, filming backstage on a windsurfing trip. This led to production of a film called "THE TRIP"."
