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 his time between Chile and the United States, 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 trips to Japan, Canada, Alaska, Europe and, of course, Chile.
