Follow Me Around – 2006
“This movie came out in 2006, so I was 21 years old at the time. This is the part on my career, that I’m the most proud of. I ended up winning the Video Part of the Year from Snowboarder Magazine and also the Rail Rider of the Year award.
“Jaakko Itäaho from MDP was pretty much working as my personal filmer for the season. I would do solo missions with him and photographer Pasi Salminen in Finland and he would be in the same crew with me the whole time in the USA shoots, so I feel like he put a lot of effort on making my part came out the way it did.
“It was the ending part of the movie and my ending trick was the double backside rodeo 1080, which had never been done before that. I feel like this was the part that actually made a big turning point for my career and people started taking me more serious, hah!” – Eero
