2011/2012 NITRO SNOWBOARDS PRODUCT PREVIEW: EERO ETTALA SPECIAL

In this special product preview, Eero Ettala gives you a run down of his new 2011 Nitro pro model snowboard and what ideas went into the it.

Needing almost no introduction, the Finnish ripper Eero Ettala is one of the great snowboarders of this generation and has been hooked up with Nitro for over 10 years. His new pro model for 2011/2012 is looking steezy with an awesome custom graphic. Apparently he wanted his stick to be covered with all his favourite things that were lying about his house, so he collected them and headed to off to a studio with one of his photographer mates and got them all shot. They were then arranged into the awesome collage that you see on his top sheet. They are also done so that if you line up all the different board lengths next to each other they make one big collage, how cool is that?! Eero himself uses the 155 mostly and says it perfect for him as the board is of a nice flex which allows him to ride pretty much everything on that one length.

As far as technology goes it’s similar to previous years with a regular camber but if you are familiar with any of Nitro’s boards you’ll surely agree this is not a bad thing.

But if you want the word straight from the big man’s mouth then check the preview vid above.
