Absinthe’s Flipside episode 4: Danny Kass, Gigi Ruf & Eric Jackson Attack Arlberg

Snowboarder Danny Kass stepped up last season shooting his inaugural part with Absinthe Films. Kass met up with Eric Jackson and Gigi Ruf in Gigi’s hometown of Arlberg Austria. The crew set out on a mission to lock down some shots and succeeded in finding awesome features including an epic jump location. A mini War breaks out between the film crew and the locals over who gets to hit the jump—Gigi, the most un-confrontational rider in snowboarding, keeps the peace.

Check back every other Friday for more episodes of Absinthe Flipside.
