Both growing up in Finland – DC pro snowboarder Iikka Backstrom and friend (photographer & ex-professional snowboarder) Jussi Oksanen ­– share many common interests in their love for snowboarding, camping, skating, surfing, and all things outdoors.

Allergic to planning and in love with a good rogue mission to anywhere but nowhere, Iikka is more interested in the journey then the destination. Embrace life’s imperfections, live for the moment, and take a glimpse into the life of Iikka Backstrom as he, Jussi, and friends enjoy the freedom of life during the off season.

The ‘Defined By’ lookbook series takes a glimpse into DC’s diverse personalities by capturing them do whatever it is they love while wearing only whatever it is they love.
