Antti is a Finnish snowboarding star who shot to fame when he defeated big-name talents Danny Kass, Andy Finch, and Shaun White in the Men's Superpipe at the 2005 Winter X Games to claim the gold. He is one of two snowboarders, along with Steve Fisher, ever to beat Shaun White in the X Games Superpipe.
However, winning the World Cup, World Championships, Olympics or X-Games doesn’t matter anymore for Antti. He could have represented his home country Finland in the Winter Olympics, but he gave others the chance and instead started producing his own films in the backcountry.
At 28, Antti is one of the most successful snowboarders in the world. His name has decorated boards and clothes, and he has shot several films.
2013 is Antti’s second year as a WHC competitor.
