Absinthe’s Rider Profile: Gigi Ruf

In their latest Rider Profile, the Absinthe crew takes a moment to talk about Ruf’s “bubbly” personality and his artistry off and on the snow. After years of successful riding for Burton Snowboards and Volcom, and later, the creation of his own brand Slash, Gigi Ruf still stands out amongst the world’s best riders. Numerous video parts each year show that, according to Patrick Armbruster, Ruf “is capable of combining the most technical tricks in any sort of natural terrain.”
