StepChild snowboards is proud to announce that Finnish ripper and all around nice guy Markku Koski has been added to the team.

StepChild founder Sean Johnson said: “Markku is most recently known for his Bronze medal in the Halfpipe in Italy. What some people don’t realize is that Markku is a jump and backcountry destroyer-he’ll kill whatever you put him in front of him and we will do everything we can to help him do just that. Simon, Stian and Fredu just love that guy too."

Stian was probably the most stoked: “Markku has always been one of my favorite riders. I am so stoked that I get to ride with him."

Markku said: “I really enjoy riding with the people on the team and for me I just want to progress my riding and have fun doing it- with StepChild I think that they are all a bunch of derelicts but that’s what makes it fun."

StepChild has some big plans for the up coming season. There has been talk of a team video but we will all just have to wait and see what happens.

Markku also rides for 32, Etnies, and Quiksilver.

The current StepChild Pro Team consists of Simon Chamberlain, Fredu Servio, Stian Solberg, Markku Koski and legends Terry Kidwell and Mike Ranquet.
