What is your Hometown / Home Mountain?
I live Tampere, in Southern Finland. I ride more in the streets than any resort to be honest. There are no mountains around here, but I sometimes go to the local hills Sappee or Mustavuori for park laps.
What is your favorite place to ride?
The streets! You get to choose what you ride and how you want it set up, so everything is always how you want it haha. I enjoy battling a hard trick with the crew, and it’s really rewarding when you finally get it – and if not, it’s still fun and makes you appreciate the makes even more.
I also like riding back country in the middle of nowhere. Northern Norway is so beautiful for that. It’s awesome to get out there with a crew of friends and hike up for hours and take snack breaks and chill and hike more. And then you finally make it to the peak and get to ride
the sickest lines down in the end.
And slushy spring laps in the park are awesome too!
What is your favorite Never Summer profile?
Fusion rocker camber. It is so fun to lay fat turns with it and go super
What Never Summer snowboard do you ride?
The ProtoSlinger is my go to board in the streets. It goes well with my riding style and it works great on rails as well.
When I’m on the hill, the Harpoon is the most fun all around board. It feels great turning, and it is wider so you can go extra deep on the edges without fearing to lose the edge when your boot touches the snow. And it’s great on rails, too!
What activities do you participate in when you aren't snowboarding?
I stay creative and stay out of trouble haha. I skate a lot, I play and listen to music, draw, read, and write. I go to the sauna almost everyday (we have one in our apartment) and ice swim, do a bit of yoga, and go for runs. I also film skateboarding and snowboarding. I do a bit of fishing in the summer. I like to hang out with my friends and maybe drink some tasty beer while I am at it.
