To round off our Pirate Movie Production Week, we’re proud to present an exclusive full part from a true OG Pirate. Gigi Rüf’s full part from ‘Unique 8’ is all time! But be quick, Gigi’s part will only be online for 24 hours!
Gigi Rüf is one of Europe, and indeed snowboarding’s most cherished possessions. With a slew of groundbreaking parts under his belt, from the Kingpin films, Volcom movies and of course, with Absinthe films, Gigi has carved out a niche for himself in snowboarding and has evolved like a fine wine.
His full part in the 2012 Pirate Movie Production film ‘Unique 8’ was an absolute classic, featuring everything you want to see from the quietly spoken Austrian: runs through the trees on his home turf in the Austrian Alps; big, powerful hits in the backcountry (don’t miss his massive frontside 1080 Japan), and some gnarly Alaskan lines that very few could descend with such calculated skill and grace.
It’s a fitting end to a week of throwback Pirates parts and if you missed the world premiere of the brand new Pirates movie ‘Perceptions’ we highly recommend you grabbing a copy of it when it is released on the iTunes store on the 14th. It’s one of the sickest movies we’ve seen so far this season.
