Jussi Oksanen is a true OG in snowboarding. If you aren’t familiar with his name, watch his part from Robot Food’s Afterbang from 2004 and you will realize why this Finn has become a legend in the States over the years. And Mikey Rencz, he’s a powder hound in every sense of the term. Put them together and you get some of the biggest backcountry snowboarding in the world and a high standard of excellence for the remaining episodes of Burton Presents.
