The Burn Units, is of course the new pro rider team from new energy drink Burn. Comprising of founding member, the one and only, Gigi Ruf; Norwegian freestyle progidy Stale Sandbach; and ultra smooth french sensation 17yr old Arthur Longo.
Check out the trailer for new film ‘Alive’ below – it’s surprising none of them ended up in the local burns unit.
Filmed on location in Vorarlberg, Austria at Gigi’s uncle’s cabin last December, this is an ambitious project as far as snowbarding films go, shooting backcountry action by electric light and moonlight. As Director Per-Hampus Stålhandske put it, “there are so many things that can go wrong when you make a snowboard film: the weather, the snow, the light, the riders… adding darkness and studio lights to the mix was a huge risk, but mother nature was with us every step of the way. An amazing experience.”
