Gigi Rüf and Elias Elhardt join forces in their new film "Follow Your Nose" to turn riding mountains into a high-velocity art form.
Risks and rewards are what fuel the spirit of adventure. It draws us to the mountains, and beyond that, it’s what draws snowboarders out of the snowpark and into the backcountry, in search of untracked powder and fresh lines – the path less travelled. Gigi Rüf and Elias Elhardt share this irresistible urge to explore the unridden. Both decided very early on that the contest path was not for them, and both have instead taken their finely-honed freestyle skills to a realm that rewards a creative eye, a flair for improvisation and a tendency to remain calm and graceful in the navigation of intensely unpredictable terrain. To put it simply, these guys turn riding mountains into a high-velocity art form.
Which brings us to "Follow Your Nose" – the latest creative collaboration between two superlative shredders, the terrain that defines them (and would end the rest of us) and the cinematographic powerhouse that is Pirate Movie Productions.For now, here’s a quick fix, a taste of what’s to come.
