Da Kine is pleased to announce the addition of two European freestyle riders to its snowboard team. While out traveling the world snowboarding, Roger Hjelmstadstuen and Jacob Soderqvist will both have access to the most complete line of snowboard accessories in the biz. Not only does Jacob have a long standing reputation as one of Europe’s most well rounded snowboarders, he’s the kind of rider that gives back to the sport. He started an annual contest in his hometown of Falun, Sweden. The world’s best freestyle riders are chosen to attend the contest- a rider-judged jam session, called Battle of the Twin Towers. It’s quickly becoming known as one of the best rider driven and influenced freestyle contests. Jacob’s other sponsors include Rusty and Allian Inc.
Roger is known as one of Europe’s rising stars. He just busted out a 2nd place in the Sims World Championship Big Air contest in Whistler, Canada. Originally from Norway, he now spends most of his time jet-setting around the globe competing and filming. Currently, he’s busy filming with Tim Manning’s upcoming film, “Blacklight”, set to debut this fall. Roger’s other sponsors include Airwalk and Volcom.
Located at the base of Mt Hood, Da Kine is known for building the most comprehensive line of high quality, innovative, and technical boardsports accessories.
