Buff, Inc. has unveiled their 2013 freesking roster, a high-profile team supported by Buff®’s rapidly growing assortment of high-performance and high-style wintersport designs.

With 16 wintersport athetes on the worldwide Buff® roster, the North American Buff® freeskiing team includes Tanner Hall, Keri Herman, Nick Martini and Phil Casabon.

“These guys are the real deal, competing at the highest levels and living the true freeskiing lifestyle,” said Shirley Choi Brunetti, Vice President and General Manager, Buff, Inc.  “Their energy, athleticism and style are a perfect platform for our edgier wintersport Buff® products.”

Tanner Hall (29, Park City) first broke onto the scene in 1999 as a 16-year old at the US Open of Freeskiing.   Since then, his dominant resume includes numerous huge halfpipe wins, including a 2008 X-game gold and a trio of Dew Tour wins in 2009.

Keri Herman (30, Breckenridge) is a Minnesota native and four-time medalist at the Winter X games.  In 2011, her impressive season included silver medals at the two biggest events in freesking: Winter X and Winter X Europe.

Nick Martini (21, Breckenridge) grew up as a racer, and has used his technical expertise to become one of the sport’s pre-eminent high fliers.  A crew member of Stept Productions, Martini is known for creativity and commitment to progression.

Phil Casabon (23, Valléé du Parc) started skiing at the age of 2, and holds an impressive resume that includes three top-ten X-Games Slopestyle finishes.   

For winter 2012, Buff® performance wintersport designs include the Bandana Buff® and Bandana Ketten Buff®, blending full storm protection with park-and-pipe style; and the UV Buff®, the super-sleek essential choice for spring days spent building big kickers, serving up protection from harmful UV rays as well as Polygiene® Active Odor Control.
