So there we go: skateboarding and surfing are in the Olympics – for at least in Tokyo 2020. It got me wondering how snowboarding got in and then what happened.
¨Hey Antti, me & the guide crew are going to Svalbard. Plan is to cruise the coastline for a week & hike mountains straight from the sea. Do you want to go? ¨
This was an offer I could not refuse!
WAPPULOUNAS might be the best thing that has ever happened to Finnish snowboarding. It’s a snowboarding festival where there’s always something going on 23,5 hours per day: you have obstacles that enquire imagination, epic commentators, best afterskis and superfun gigs.
There are a few things that have kept me going forward through out my career. Determination, dedication and passion have been behind my every move, but also the right partners and help from them has given me many opportunities and without their support many of them would have only been distant dreams...
Im Not Gifted
Sometimes I hear people say how easy it´s for Antti to do stuff because he’s so gifted. This really amazes me, because it’s really not true. I’ve never been the most gifted rider – on the contrary.
