TransWorld SNOWboarding has been nominated for the prestigious ‘Cover Of The Year’ Award at the 2015 Maggie Media Awards. The Cover shot is of 2014 Rider Of The Year, Gigi Rüf, who busted a method on one of the biggest quarter pipes ever ridden, and landed the cover of our September issue.

About the photo:

Photographed by Maxim Balakhovskii in Greenland filming for the Pirate Crew's new movie Perceptions. The Pirates movie crew has gone from a loose group of Austrian up-and-comers to an international band of marauders. This winter they pillaged spots around the world including the largest natural quarter pipe ever seen in Greenland. When they stumbled across this gem, captain Gigi Rüf knew just what to do—kick out a method.

Wish us luck, this is who we are up against.
