Everyone loves a good minishred. Even superstar riders like Gigi Rüf who, in addition to spending all season launching brands, filming X-Games Real Snow parts and launching down 50 degree slopes along with the best riders in the world, still see the value in making the best of sunny skies and end of season conditions.
In this short, shot at the Dragon shoot in Silverton (try reading that one five times as as fast as you can…), Gigi is joined by Frend Luke Mitrani to session a lovingly sculpted quarterpipe and kicker/bonk feature. Check out the insane double handplant at 00:57!
Great to see the kind of creativity we’ve come to expect from Gigi although we have to say that as fun as this looks, it ain’t got nothing on this similarly hillbilly-inspired spring shred.
