Samu Mikkonen is from Savonlinna, Eastern Finland, but he has now lived in Jyväskylä for 3 years. Samu has been skating and snowboarding for more than half of his life, and that shows in his confident style. The word on the street has it that he is actually made of rubber: no one can bail as hard as Samu, bounce off and get through it without a scratch.
When off board, Samu brings bread to the table by working as a kindergarden teacher. The next generation is in good hands!
Weird fact: Samu has landed a front ten in his life.
