Flipside: Episode 3


Cale Zima, Dan Brisse and Bode Merrill avoid trouble with the cops while sessioning a rail in Minnesota, while the Euro crew round out their trip in Cervinia, Italy. Gigi Ruf gets the gold star in creativity this episode with his Gazex pipe jib (though how Ruf convinced resort employees to let him board the chairlift with a 20-foot piece of wood needed for an on-ramp we are still not clear). But its Gigi's dam drop (and the story behind it) at the end of this episode that really takes the prize. Dudes are trying to shut him down, so he just ... drops. Awesome.
