Pirates catchup: rock jibs with Kalle Ohlson and tucknee spins with Gigi Rüf

Here are a couple more videos from those prolific Pirates. Up first we have a Behind the Spot episode with Kalle Ohlson hitting some rad rock features in the Swedish resort of Riksgransen that have featured in a fair few of the Pirates snowboard movies over the years. Pretty funny how the rocks need to be waxed with those long sticks – sounds like a time consuming process and one that would no doubt ruffle the feathers of a few environmentalists!

Secondly we’ve got a Behind the Trick episode with Gigi Rüf and his super unique tucknee-grabbed frontside spins. We literally have no idea how he can spin that fast doing such a tweaked out grab but as always he manages to make it look effortless…
