10 Well Known Snowboarders who don’t have a Board Sponsor (But Totally Should)

Former board sponsor: Stepchild

Current sponsors: Quiksilver, 32, Etnies, Vivo Headwear

At 32 years of age, Markku Koski may be one of the more, let’s say, ‘established’ dudes on this list but he can still ride a snowboard really bloody well. He’s the kind of rider that you could point at any feature and count on him to send it.

Markku spent many years on the Stepchild team before being let go a couple of seasons back (to be fair, he was a little out of place seeing as a pretty hefty chunk of their team is made up of North American jibbers), and while he may not get the same coverage today as he did in his hey-day, we reckon the Finnish halfpipe boss, who you may remember scored a bronze medal in the 2006 Winter Olympics, is still more than worthy of a board sponsor. Check his kicker hits starting at 2:33 in the edit above from our Send Off Session this year: they ain’t half shabby.
