Eero is a phenomenon in his native Finland and his progressive, exciting style has also won him countless fans across the world. He burst onto the international scene in 2005 with victories at the Toyota and Speedy Experience Big Air events in Japan and Brazil respectively, and then showed he could also mix it up on the rails as well by taking first place at the O’Neill Snowboard Jam in Switzerland.
Those results, coupled with another big air triumph the following year at the Freestyle.CH in Zurich, earned him a place on legendary producer Mack Dawg’s rider roster. High-profile parts in snowboard movies such as Picture This and Double Decade soon followed. A severe knee injury put Eero out of the game for much of 2007 but he returned stronger than ever and now boasts 1260s and triple backflips in his bulging bag of tricks.
