Where do you start,,, Gigi has been a top ten selected rider for years now and to top it off has laid down numerous video parts. A highlight may have been the 2008-2009 season in which he not only filmed three video parts but also had his baby boy, Jona.

From the hills or Austria is where Christian “Gigi” Ruf hails. Gigi spent his time ripping around the natural terrain that his local mountains provided and it shows in his smooth fluidity today.
This is a time of change for Gigi; he recently got married, had a baby boy, and parted ways with his longtime hard goods sponsor. Change is something that Gigi has embraced and with that change has come new challenges, which we can’t wait to see him tackle. Keep your eyes out this fall for the Gigi Movie "9191" compliments of Volcom.
