One of the biggest product related stories last winter was the news that Gigi Rüf was gearing up to release his own snowboard brand, titled Slash Snowboards. We caught up with Gigi and asked him to give us the chat on his Year 1 range.

As well as Gigi himself, the Slash team also features the heavy all-terrain skills of Johnnie Paxson and both of these dudes have pro models. There is also a freeride/all mountain weapon that Gigi used to charge the Supernatural, and a park & street-oriented model too.
