Once on the same Global Burton team as long-term buddy Nicolas Müller, Fredi Kalbermatten has been around for yonks. He’s filmed many a part with Standard Films over the years and although he eventually dropped off the Burton sponsorship conveyor belt, there’s still a lot of love out there for him and his powerful, stomping riding riding style.
Case in point: his prominent role in Jake Blauvelt’s Naturally movie – one of the biggest snowboard releases of the year. He may be massively underrated on a mainstream level but in many ways he should be regarded as on par with the Gigis, Nicos and De Marchis of this world.
