Niklas Mattsson

Niklas has got his brothers to thank for his snowboarding career after they told him at the age of five he wasn’t allowed to ski anymore because skiing was for “noobs” (well said guys). They pushed him on a board and he hasn’t looked back since.

The young lad had never been outside Sweden before his professional snowboarding career took off so it was a new chapter in his life. He took the silver medal in the 2011 FIS Snowboarding World Championships  in the slopestyle event so it’ll be interesting to see how he gets on it Sochi at the Olympics.
