We thought It's Not You, It's Me was Joonas Eloranta's farewell to snowboarding. With a caption as follows, it's hard to think otherwise:
"Filming a legit full part is one of the best challenges snowboarding has to offer, but it comes at a price that many can’t afford to pay. And the older you get, the more expensive that price tag becomes because time is money. I will always love you snowboarding, but I can no longer afford to pay the price tag."
No doubt was this a respectable way to raise the white flag to the sport we all hold so dear to our heart; prioritizing your family and the responsibilities that come with it is a given.
But hey, don't judge a boarder by the title of their video. Joonas is back, this time around with a video aptly titled for his situation. Bona Fide is a 4-minute glimpse into Joonas's relentless relationship with snowboarding—an offering that showcases his unwavering love for the sport. If this flick doesn't epitomize what it means to be a bona fide boarder, we don't know what does.
