THE MIZU FAMILY
Jussi Oksanen, an Olympic athlete and professional snowboarder for 18 years, has seven X Games medals to his name and is widely known as one of the best backcountry snowboarders of all time.
Throughout his storied career, Jussi was living a #mizulife well before people started calling that #thing a “hash tag.” It was while filming for a snowboard movie in Alaska in 2008 when Jussi realized just how much the trail of single-use plastic water bottles was tarnishing his travels. He committed to starting a company that would do something about it and shortly after, Mizu was born. Thinking like a person whose life depended, in many cases, on the quality of the gear he chose to bring with him, his vision was also to create a product that fit his style and was tough enough to withstand the pounding any professional outdoor athlete could inflict.
Today Jussi continues to push all Mizu products to their limits in real world situations alongside the Mizu Advocates. His passion for a plastic free playground is matched only by a passion for creating durable products for like-minded people.
