Rip Raw is an action based mini-series presented by Rip Curl that follows winter athlete Chris Booth in the search for unique mountain experiences around the world. Follow Boothy as he collides with big mountains and even bigger personalities from Mt Cook's Aoraki region in New Zealand to The People's Republic of Macedonia, as Rip Raw takes you on an honest, eyes-open journey into the world of a pro freeskier...
It doesn't matter where you are in the world, in the company of a few good mates you feel right back at home. Follow Chris Booth in the fourth episode of Rip Raw as he joins pro snowboarders Roland Morley Brown and Mitch Allen in Popova Sapka. Together, the trio get their shred on in the politically-contested mountains bordering Kosovo and Albania with Eskimo Freeride, Macedonia's only cat ski operation.
Extreme skiing died in the early 90s, or did it? Rip Raw finds out as Chris Booth meets extreme skiing legend Glen Plake in Chamonix, France, the birthplace of extreme, during episode five of Rip Raw.
In the sixth and final episode of Rip Raw, the crew has been in Europe for over two weeks, and not a flake has fallen, so in a stroke of genius Boothy hatches a plan. Rip Raw leaves Chamonix under the cover of darkness and heads south to Val Thorens, France, joining pro snowboarder Kieren McLaughlin to drink until it snows. Follow the boys as they hit the world-renowned Val-Park, get turbo radical sideway at the Alain Prost ice-driving academy, and conduct a Euro dance experiment on the tables at La Folie Douce.
