Greg Bretz joins the Slash Snowboards family

Comments by Kelli Lynn Hargrove/

Slash Snowboards has proudly announced the addition of Greg Bretz to its small, incredibly dialed snowboard team. Miguel Diaz, Johnnie Paxson, and brand founder Gigi Ruf make up Slash’s legendary ranks, with Bretz bringing his halfpipe dominance to the squad.

Bretz was equally stoked, saying “It’s incredible to be a part of a board company that is just starting up. Even more so, one founded by a snowboarder who I’ve looked up to since I was a grom. Unique shapes, unique company, and a unique ride. Being on these boards is incredible and I’m ready for the next step, slash it up!”

More on Slash x Bretz provided in the press release below:

Slash Snowboards welcomes Greg Bretz to the family. Greg really needs no introduction, as he is on the hunt for Gold in Sochi this February. Having taken down El Blanco at the Dew Cup earlier this December and 2nd Prix in Copper Mtn a week later, he is in great standings to be making the trip to Russia with the US Team.

“Greg Bretz doesn’t care, he catches air – to do so he chose the ATV board a couple years back and I knew how valuable his feedback was going to be as he is riding in some of the most difficult situations out there. Greg’s recent accomplishments in the Halfpipe are proof of his dedication in progressing snowboarding. I couldn’t be happier for him. He is onto the next level! – Gigi Ruf

“Having Greg officially part of the Slash Family really rounds out our crew. Greg’s dedication and hard work are really paying off so far this year, evident in his last two performances here in Colorado. I can’t wait to see what is in store for Mr. Bretz… Welcome. – Alex Pashley
