WSF World Rookie Champion 09 Roope Tonteri, got is filming session with Pirate Movie Production in Schnastal Glacier, Italy. Check out the story and video interview and don’t miss the upcoming Summer Rookie Fest in the same resort: a crazy snowpark set up is waiting for the top rookies!

“We are stoked on the next generation of snowboards that will blow our mind in the future! Already last year, we had a cooperation with the WorldSnowboardFederation and invited the WorldRookieChampion to shoot with us at CampOfChampions in Whistler. Too bad for Gjermund Braten, who got sick right before that trip…so Giorgio Ciancaleoni, who was placed second got the chance to shoot some tricks on 16mm. Watch his spins in Boardbagged 3!” (from Pirate Movie Production blog)

Also this year, the winner of the Protest World Rookie Finals in Ischgl got a voucher to shoot with Pirate Movie Production! Roope Tonteri, riding for Burton Snowboards, got lucky and took the champion title AND the invitation voucher home to Finland. He joined a spring session in Schnastal Galcier, Italy, where he showed his skills! Stay tuned for this young charger and his appearance in next year’s Pirate film”Jolly Roger”!

The photo shooting took a week. The ski resort was closed, reserved for the shooting and with a perfect snowpark shaped by Gentlemen’s Riders crew. Roope and the Pirate crew were based at Rifugio BellaVista, directly on the glacier, with a private snowcat to move around the area serching for spots. The World Rookie Champion showed how he took that title and conquered a new title: Pirate Roope Tonteri.
