Rene Rinnekangas is like your favourite all-mountain board – he can do everything and he can do it well. Last year, we were introduced to everything this Finn is capable of, and when he sent that 180 of Ryo Aizawa’s board at this years X-Games Knuckle Huck, we were all reminded of why we love this kid so much. Rene’s Insta feed is like your favourite Netflix series – you can’t help to binge-watch it, over and over again.
“I feel like snowboarding is filled with so many rad things that I don’t want to miss out on anything, so I want to ride whatever I get the chance too”
Not only can this 20-year-old kid ride, but he’s also one of the nicest and most down-to-earth people we’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. We got to catch up with Rene himself after Rome Snowboards introduced him as their latest member to their Pro Team late last year.
