A word from Rome Snowboards expressing how they feel about this new appointment: "Stoked doesn't even begin to describe Rene Rinnekangas' riding or personal approach to life. This young Finn first entered our collective conscious at the 2017 Dew Tour Team Challenge and has delivered a steady stream of style conscious mind-melters since then.
Last season Rene filmed for Snowboarder Mag's 'Everybody, Everybody', cutting his teeth in the backcountry and bringing his infectious energy to every session. Last week the stars aligned and we got Rene out to Killington, Vermont for our sales meeting where we surprised him with the news.
Congrats Rene! Beyond well deserved, we are so stoked to have you flying the Rome flag and cant wait to see what the future holds for you!"
And a word from us...we 100% agree! Rene is an absolute BOSS, he filmed an insane video part with us for Method Movie 3 and landed a cover of our magazine last year. Just keep watching this kid, it's such a joy!
