One of those up and coming talents is Jussi Mononen.  The 21 yr old Fin

from Tampere, riding previously for Movement skis, has signed with LINE

over the summer, and we are excited to see what comes next from Jussi. 

He started skiing when he was 7 years old, coming from a family with

two sisters.  His hobbies include playing the piano, and is currently

studying international business.  Besides LINE skis, he is currently

riding for Fulltilt boots, Orage, Smith, and Level.  Last season was a

great season for Jussi as he finished 2nd at the Lendzerheide City Big

Air, Sappe Snow Park Big Air, Frozen City Air & Style; and third at

the Kalajoki X-Games Big Air, and the Ruka Fabulous Slopestyle.  He

plans to compete in some local Scandinavian comps, and the larger

European ones like the Austrian Open, Champs Open, and the European

Open where last year he qualified for the finals in slopestyle.  Even

with that busy schedule, Jussi was still able to get out and do a bit

of filming including credits in Legacy (07’), Ilikethisthen, and the

upcoming Roots. Here is the trailer of Roots from Verse Productions

where also. Line Rider Patrick Hollaus is also featured:
