Sven Thorgren

Coming from Scandanavia makes it pretty hard to break out and get noticed – although on the plus side, there’s no shortage of world-class riders around to inspire you. This particular blessing/curse is something Sven had to deal with in the last few years, but now he’s well and truly bedding in to the top tier of competitive snowboarding.

A promising grom, he won the overall title at the World Rookie Tour in 2011/12, during which time he also took 4th place at the O’Neill Pleasure Jam. After leaving school he went full-time, stacking up top-10 finishes in the likes of the Dew Tour, World Snowboarding Championships, O’Neill Evolution, Burton European Open, Quicksilver Flachauwinkl Spring Battle, Burton High Fives, Billabong Brodown and London Freeze.

Since then he’s gone from strength to strength and, with 4th place at the 2014 Olympics and 3rd at the 2015 X Games, has become one of the top slopestyle contenders in the world. He finally got his first major win at the inaugural Nine Knights snowboard event in 2015, where he won the approval of both the judges and his fellow riders.
