She’s definitely cooler than any of us was at the age of 10, and most likely, cooler than any of us will ever be. Anniina Perhovaara landed the opener in Jess Kimura’s ‘The Uninvited’ at the impressively young age of eight, and she’s dropped some pretty sick edits since. But what got this 10-year-old into street riding in the first place and what are her plans for the future?
“It’s just so much fun to find new spots and then figure out what sick things you could pull of there”
We’ve been following you for a couple of seasons now. What got you into filming street edits in the first place?
From the very start, street riding has been a big part of snowboarding for me. Pretty much all of my favourite riders’ ride street, which is what got me into it in the first place. I started off hitting some smaller spots that I saw on my way to school and then slowly made my way to bigger spots. It’s just so much fun to find new spots and then figure out what sick things you could pull of there.
How did it feel to be part of Jess Kimura’s ‘The Uninvited’?
The whole ‘The Uninvited’ project was incredible! First of all, Jess is one of my biggest idols, and I’ve watched her parts over and over again. They still keep on inspiring me and make me pumped on riding. It just felt so unreal to get to be part of her project. And all the other riders she got involved filmed the sickest clips ever! I’m still so stoked on the whole film!
