Tracking Eero Ettala

September 23rd, 2009

Finnish uber-pro Eero Ettala has just completed a dream year filming “Tracking Eero” – a television series, webisodes and a documentary video. His long term sponsor Oakley, opened up the coffers and allowed Eero to do what every snowboarder dreams of: go anywhere with anyone any time and have the most fun in the best conditions, for a whole year! By the look of the teaser below and the rider line-up it’s going to be all time.

Here’s the teaser, do yourself a favour and watch it in HD.


(Some words from Oakley on the project…)

“Tracking Eero showcases the true depth of Eero’s riding,” says Chris Hotell, Tracking Eero Executive Producer and Oakley Sports Marketing Manager. “We took him out of his element and pushed him into new scenarios, including trips with athletes he never rides with. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for him and we documented it.”

From the producers of “Terje’s Season Pass” and “Snowboard Diaries”, “Tracking Eero” follows Eero Ettala as he explores urban jibs in grim Russian military zones, gets lost in the endless powder of the Hokkaido backcountry, heli boards in British Columbia and goes on a whirlwind Euro road trip searching for the best parks on the continent.

Friends join Ettala as he travels to legendary snow locations…

There’s no word from FUEL TV Australia when the show will air here or in NZ, but by the teaser the show is going to be legit.
