The season and serious Scrapbook filming has officially started. Jibbing in Ylläs and Ruka has been lots of fun, and we also got some good shots when
filming city rails in Rovaniemi city. Good work boys!
Lumimaisema. We’re guessing that’s in Finland.
The thing everybody already probably knows but we still want to mention is that Antti-Juhani “Naku” Piirainen won the Slammer award “Snowboarder of the year”. The prize definetely went to the right man, congratulations!
“I’m speechless and thrilled from this kind of honour, thank you! And to everyone it may concern, huge apology that I for some reason didn’t come up to the stage… Deafness, here I come?”, says Naku.
At the end of November some of the brave boys of Northern Scrapbook crew flew to Austria and had some amazing quality time in Leogang and
Kaprun. Let’s hear the comments!
“It was hell of a good trip concidering it’s the beginning of the season”, says Miikka Niemi, the director of film. “Conditions were luxurious. We had four powder kickers there and it was maybe the best powder days we’ve ever had. Snow was light as a feather, sick!”
Must have been an amazing trip ’cause Miikka sounds still stoked about Austria even though it’s pouring rain here in Finland. But we won’t give up, the sweet winter days are coming back again!
