Listen up, team managers. If you want to sign a good rider onto your European team, you should turn your attention towards Finland. And while in the past this meant booking a flight to Helsinki and bothering the Finnish reps of your brand, this year all you need to do is click yourself through these videos of the Snowboarding Finnish Open, one of Finland's two biggest events (the other being Wappulounas, of course). Our man on ground Petro Kukkonen wrote up this exclusive report for us:

Last weekend Tahko resort gathered the most noted snowboarding groups for a filming extravaganza. A competition where each team had 3 days time to film and produce 5 min short film at Tahko. A brand new park was specifically built for the video competition. Park had kickers & hips, a double pool, gaps, corner and line filled with spines and special rail features. Pipe, junior park, streets, woods etc. were also free for use. After three days of sunny shreddin & filming SFO Jam Session gathered film groups and long list of Finnish pro riders to have a nice session at filming park. The final climax for SFO TAHKO 2013 was video competition premiere & prize ceremony held at night club Piazza.
