Slash Snowboards are the brain/lovechild of legendary Austria master Mr Gigi Rüf.

With some of the shapes the new snowboards have got as well, they wouldn’t look out of place on Mars either, let alone the fact that they’re so supercharged they’ll send you to the Moon as well.
After parting ways with Burton a wee while back, Gigi set to work getting his own range of powder ploughers knocked up by the experts at the Nidecker factory in Switzerland. Using their expertise, and his vision, they created a holy matrimony of passion and poplar cores to create some of the highest of high end snowboards.
