Ladies and Gentlemen!

Riders who don’t know who Peetu Piiroinen is certainly will do in couple of years. Peetu is one of best snowboarders that I know and is not only developing rapidly in snowboarding but also as a person. He’s a guy who can have fun riding no matter what condition the kicker or pipe is in. That’s why is so cool to ride with him.

But he also knows how to PARTY and have fun with his friends when he’s not on snow. So, Peetu, keep fun in your life and see you at Hyvinkää Rock City!

Which is the rider who has had the most influence on your style: There are so many good riders who have good style, but maybe Heikki Sorsa and Eero Niemela. They have super good style.
