They say: Eero is a tech wizard who does his shit big and drops hammers.
We say: Everyone loves Eero. He rips on rails, kickers, and in the backcountry, wins X Games Golds, and he’s still totally unassuming in that way Finnish people have. Likewise, pretty much everyone will love this board – except maybe beginners.
Tester says: Good stiffish board for the park.

- History lesson: Nitro was kick-started in Seattle in 1990, emerging kicking and screaming slap bang in the middle of the Grunge explosion that would make the city famous. While Kurt Cobain and co screamed their disapproval with the status quo up on stage, Nitro channeled the same spirit onto their boards. To this day the brand is known for its dark graphics – often featuring skulls – and its love of Iron Maiden’s favourite font.
- Ridden by: Scandinavian black metal bands on their days off, skate-punks who throw the horns any time they think something’s even remotely cool, and long-haired dudes who wear chains.
