Xavier de la Rue rides the world’s gnarliest terrain. In Degrees North, the bar is once again raised. Xavier and Samuel Anthamatten use paramotors to access and ride incredible lines, never before ridden in the remote Atomfjiella region of Svalbard in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between continental Norway and the North Pole.
