Volcom have just released their classic Gigi Rüf centric movie 9191, for free on the internet. This one's an absolute gem folks, stop what you're doing and watch it!
Back in 2010, Volcom rightly decided that the time was right for an entire movie dedicated to Gigi Rüf and his travels around the globe in pursuit of the purest, most inspiring snowboarding.
For an entire season, Volcom gave Gigi free reign to go snowboarding where and when he wanted, and invited him to bring his friends along for the ride with no sponsor obligations of any sort. And when your friends are the likes of Nicolas Müller, Terje Haakonsen, Jake Blauvelt and Wolle Nyvelt, you know that you're in for some pretty epic backcountry snowboarding.

That, paired with Volcom's unique editing style and some incredible footage, shot entirely on 16mm and super 8 film, makes for a truly immersive snowboarding experience. This is an absolute classic right here.
Every Tuesday until the premiere of Volcom's new documentary "Veeco: A Volcom Filmmaking Documentary" on Aug 26th, Volcom will be posting a classic Veeco production from the Volcom vault.
9191 is a sideways introspective into the bewildering snow-covered dreamscape of international time traveler and mystic of the shred - Gigi Rüf. Every year, Gigi circles the stratosphere in the name of snowboarding and 9191 is the accumulation of his visions from a season, documented in 16mm film, super 8, and highly defined video. Original soundtrack produced and composed by Piers Baron (Never Not Part 2 soundtrack and Extremely Sorry soundtrack), exclusively for Volcom Entertainment. Hold onto your schnitzel and Viel spass!
