Jonathan 'Douds' Charlet : Chamonix Born and Bred Pro Snowboarder

Chamonix's own Jonathan 'Douds' Charlet is one of the best snowboarders in the world right now. In 2012 he won the Mens Snowboard category of the Freeride World Tour and last weekend he picked up first place in the Chamonix stop on this year's 2013 Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face.

'Douds' spoke to Liz Daley of EpicTV after his winning run about what it means to him to be a pro snowboarder, winning a home event on the FWT, and tells us about some of his favourite lines to ride here in Chamonix.

Thanks to EpicTV for sharing this interview and to find out more about this year's event, take a look at our event report.
