Alek Oestreng

Alek is one of the next generation of riders shaping snowboarding. The Norwegian rider came up on the scene along with his crew of fellow rippers out of Rykkinn, Norway. Known collectively as RK1, they’ve perfected the art of releasing web series as well as one off “Instahammers” showcasing their next level riding. Alek is best known for his ability to put together video parts showcasing his diverse skillset in the backcountry, in the streets, on massive manmade jumps, and yes, even technical resort moves. This past season was spent filming for the TransWorld SNOWboarding release of Insight alongside his RKI crew of Stale Sandbech and Len Jorgensen, showcasing their journey from humble beginnings to becoming one of the most recognized crews in snowboarding.
