ToutantThe international star known as Seb Toots turned heads when he won his first professional event when he was just 13. He was immediately recruited by a film crew who could see that he was going to make it big. Taking his first ever airplane trip, he went to Mount Hood and was captured performing tricks off the biggest jumps he had ever seen. Since then, Toutant has competed at snowboard’s biggest events.

At the 2011 Winter X Games in Aspen, Toutant became the first male rookie to win the snowboard slopestyle competition since 2002. He also won silver at the 2011 Winter X Games in Tignes. He had gone to Aspen with no expectations after missing the 2010 Winter X Games because of a broken ankle.

While 2011-12 could be considered a bit of an off-year for Toutant, he returned to the top of the podium at the Winter X Games in Tignes in 2013, defeating fellow Canadian Mark McMorris. He and McMorris have known each other since Toutant was 14.
