I have spent past 3days in Tamok,Norway. So far it has been a lot of treeriding and snow conditions have been quite good. first day we ended up into this pretty nice forest that we knew from last season.I don´t know the name of it but we call it ¨Pillow heaven¨...
This place is right above Tamok helibase. so basically when you are waiting the weather clear up you can do few warm up laps front of pretty nice landscape.
Relate to it - episode 3 will drop any day now in twsnow.com.we had a lot good footage from Japan but decided that we want more diversity with locations. You have to wait rest of the japan footy until fall when Relate to It - Movie will be released alongside with my full part. Episode 3 was filmed in 7days around british columbia,Canada.Juuso Laivisto and Markku Koski were on a trip with me...even thought we didn´t see clear skies we ended up getting lot of air time!..Keep your eyes open since EP3 is going to be online no later than early next week.
couple days ago me and my filmer decided to go syote central park,Finland.Slammer magazine editor Simo contacted us about this story he wanted to do of junior riders in Finland.we thought it would be really cool idea for ¨Relate to it¨ project as well.we rushed ourselves to Syote where I met these two local groms. 11year old Sami and 12year old Janne. I followed them and rode the spots they wanted to shred for 2days. It was awesome.
Sami might be 11 years old kid but this method is timeless. He claims that it is his favourite grap.Im pretty sure that opinion won´t change anytime soon.
Filmer Teemu shoots while young buck Janne jumps over tree.he spotted this feature and asked if I would like to session it with him.
I couldn´t say no to Janne so I did this tiny tailgrap over the same tree as well.Past few days of riding with these two kids was such a nice experience.riding with them brought lot of memories in my mind from my junior years.I think that older riders should take a step back and go ride with younger generation once in a while to keep their feelings fresh towards snowboarding. photos: SIMO VILHUNEN / http://www.flickr.com/photos/simovilhunen/
