Style, consistency and power—Jussi Oksanen has stomped so many backcountry video bangers that even his heaviest riding looks like second nature.
With over a decade of experience settling kickers with tricks that fried many VCR’s rewind buttons, Jussi’s freestyle wisdom includes multiple Standard Films, Robot Food, Mack Dawg, and Burton video appearances, plus Winter X Games medals and podiums at marquee events like the Air and Style. Grounded by being a father of two, and an awareness of how fun his “job” really is, Jussi is a clutch player in any serious session, calmly slaying and supporting his film crew all the while. Jussi’s influence can be felt firsthand in the Process snowboard and [ak] outerwear, which he thoroughly tested while filming for the new Burton Presents – BACKCOUNTRY (Snowboarding) video and his silver medal-winning X Games Real Snow Backcountry part.Age: 35 Home Town: Encinitas, California Home Mountain: Northstar-at-Tahoe, California Stance: Regular, 24” wide, 18° front, -12° back
