Whitelines Snowboarding

Peetu Piiroinen

Consistency, thy name is Peetu. This Finnish contest machine is a picture of control, a lifetime of hitting icy booters leaving him with otherworldly ability on a snowboard.

On several occasions he’s been the top-ranked rider in both the TTR (now the WST) and the Burton Open series, and has an Olympic silver medal from the 2010 halfpipe to boot. As a slopestyle specialist, he also picked up X Games bronze in 2012 and was a hot favourite for a medal at Sochi 2014. While he didn’t make it onto the podium in Russia, it’s hard to overstate how much he’s achieved in slopestyle (and big air) over the years.

The man often dubbed ‘R2-Peetu’ is no style-bereft robot, but he does have the kind of track record and calm under pressure that suggests he sees the world in 1’s and 0’s…
