Hi, my name is Eero Ettala. My discipline is snowboard big air, slopestyle and rail jam. I was born on 17 October 1984 in Helsinki, Finland. My special talent is skateboarding. My philosophy of life is if you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space. My favourite food is burgers. My favourite music is Finnish music.


Eero Ettala isn’t just a jack-of-all-trades, he’s a master of them too. Born in Helsinki, Finland in 1984, Eero demonstrated from an early age that he had a real aptitude for anything he tried his hand at. He first appeared on the international snowboarding scene back in 2005 and, despite several knee injuries along the way, has shown that he’s got the skills to stay there.

Not only has he achieved impressive results in Big Air events, such as being a two-time Freestyle.CH winner (2006 & 2009) and taking third place at the Toyota Big Air event in 2012, but he’s also shown to be quite the expert on the rails; taking first place at the O’Neill Snowboard Jam. His talents don’t stop there however; in 2010 he entered the Winter X Games in Aspen and modestly walked away with first place in the slopestyle event. Needless to say, there isn’t much that this young Finnish athlete doesn’t excel at!

After he started popping up all over the circuit, it didn’t take long for Eero to catch the eye of producer Mack Dawg, who went on to cast him in high-profile roles in snowboarding movies such as Picture This and Double Decade, immortalising Eero's skills on film.

More recently, Eero's love for filming killer vids has outweighed his thirst for competition, and he's been focussing his energies into making his own web series, 'Cooking with Gas'. In it, Eero – along with fellow Finnish boarders Heikki Sorsa and Lauri Heiskari – demonstrates all the best that both urban and backcountry riding has to offer in one web series.
