The Pirates went overseas to add to their already stellar crew of European riders. This season, North American standouts Mike Casanova and Dan Brisse joined the squad of swashbucklers led by Hans Ahlund and Marko Grilc. Look for banger parts from these guys, and don’t sleep on Gigi Rüf’s second part of the year, who to quote Pirate Editor Basti Balser, has the “iron legs of Austria,” stomping tricks on impossibly flat landings. As you can see by the rider list, the Pirate crew is a diverse one—rail riders, jumpers, and backcountry guys all made their way into the lineup, which promises entertainment for every boarding enthusiast. OverSeas also comes with a 100 page art book, so you’d be hard pressed to find a reason not to add this to your wish list.
