Riders Who Can Skate (well): Roope Tonteri

How many days do you get to skate on average during winter?
Not that many but I always have my skateboard with me if I go some places where is possible to skate. I would say like 10 days during winter. That’s little bit too less.

Is there anything you like more about skating than snowboarding?
It’s more chill for me as I don’t have to do crazy tricks. With skate its more about having lot of fun and relaxing.

Have you got any sponsors or got free shit from skating?
I still getting free shoes from etnies

Do you ever think you could have gone pro from skating if you hadn’t concentrated on snowboarding?
I do and for me my first goal was to try to turn pro with skating but everything went well with snowboarding. So today i’m super stoked that I can be a pro snowboarder.

Which other snowboarders do you skate with?
Eero Ettala for sure and with everyone who is down to skate because i’m always down to go do some 360 flips.

Who is the best snowboarder at skating?
Eero is really good skating ramps and I like his skating style.
