Live, from Carlsbad, CA, at the TransWorld SNOWboarding HQ, it’s episode 16 of Eddie’s Wall, with silent street killer, Toni Kerkela. Growing up in Finland as an urban snowboarder is like growing up on the North Shore of Oahu if you’re a surfer, Helsinki and the surrounding cities hold some of the world’s best and most sought after handrails and street spots. Luckily for Toni, he grew up in a place where snowboarders from all over the world travel to, and it shows in his snowboarding. Dig into Kerkela’s KBR roots and growing up in Jyväskylä. TransWorld’s Insight movie is the biggest project for Kerkela yet, so enjoy the interview, and after that, find a way to watch his part.
