    While most people are looking at the calendar counting the days left in their summer vacation. Oakley’s Ski and Snowboard team is keeping it cold in New Zealand’s storm of the century while staying in the scenic town of Wanaka.

    Eero Ettala is psyched. Oakley’s Finnish Snowboard Star just landed the front cover of Europe’s prominent Onboard Magazine. But even better: the shot captured the essence of his being – featuring key elements of his hometown, Helsinki. From the so-called “Church of Doom” (we don’t know why they call it that) to the infamous “booze cruise” boats that ship partiers from the Finnish city to Stockholm, Sweden, the sweet photo reflected the core of who Eero is…and where he’s from. And some Oakley love, of course.

    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!
