Tracking Eero – Japan Webisode

Eero Ettala On Japan Trip:

This was the first time I have filmed in Japan. And it snowed almost everyday! Once again the crew was amazing, Nicolas Muller and Kevin Pearce made it so much fun. Those guys kill it. And all of our riding styles are so different. Nicolas really knows how to take advantage of that Japanese terrain. He is the powder master!

We filmed powder lines in Asahidake for a few days and then I had to go back to Sapporo and compete in the Toyota big air. During my stay in Sapporo it snowed like 1 meter in Asahidake, so went back there after I won the big air.

It was one of the coolest trips I have been on. The only minus point on the trip was the gnarly hiking, but I guess I should just look at it as a free gym pass.

Tracking Eero Russia & Japan Story Webisode:

Eero Ettala is one of the most progressive snowboarders on the planet. He’s been owning technical double cork tricks before they were even called double corks. After 10 years filming with Mack Dawg, in 2009 Eero was left with no filming gig when Mack Dawg shut up shop. So Oakley stepped up with the cheque book and they came up with the idea of Eero filming his own TV series during the winter with Oakley’s best snowboard athlete’s, which happen to be some of the best snowboarders in the world anyways.

Tracking Eero – the TV series will be airing world wide very soon. To stay on track go to: trackingeero.com
