I had the pleasure of running into Niko, and his girlfriend Peta, completely randomly on an island off the coast of Bali a couple weeks ago. We got to talking and turns out Nico and I grew up riding for the same company, in different regions. In North America, we tend to not notice what happens in Europe, but Niko was part of one of the heaviest am crews to grace the fine land of Finland, Greenline Snowboarding. He's got some great stories, and I hope to share a few of those with you in the coming weeks, but for now, check out his part from the 2011/2012 season. There are some sick spots you may have seen in other videos, and some hammers for sure.
That's all for now. Stoked to get back on snow after a short hiatus.
