Switching Snowboards for whitewater rafts, Mathieu and Damien finally make it to the riverside. The next challenge is to find their Gold Digger friend somewhere along the trail stake a land claim and start mining.

EPISODE 2



Damien and Mathieu spend a week hiking the peaks around the camp. Mathieu feels right at home, but the splitboard gives him a new approach to snowboarding in Alaska by accessing the lines by foot. While for Damien, it’s a real challenge. He has to adapt to an environment and a sport he is not totally familiar with. The first part of their adventure is nearly done as they make their way towards the river.

EPISODE 1



In this episode, meet Mathieu and Damien and get to understand what led them to go on an adventure following the course of water in Alaska.

As they get there, they meet Will, a big mountain guide that will spend the first part of their journey with them. They also meet Drake, a legendary bush-pilot that will drop the Odisea Team on the glacier where they’ll set up their base camp and start exploring the glaciers.

 

TRAILER



Imagine loading up the truck in ALASKA and dropping off the radar for a 5 week adventure, hunting down fresh pow and empty waves.. That's exactly what the Odisea expedition is about, a five part series all about shredding the Mountain and the Wave or as Mathieu describes it:

 

"The goal of the ODISEA expedition is to discover. Discover a place where Nature makes its own way far from any human interference. Discover the cycle of water and the interdependence of the environments with two of the best action sports riders. Surfing and snowboarding as a common language to get closer to Nature."
