Hi, my name is Sebastien Toutant. My discipline is snowboard big air. My friends call me Seb Toots. I was born on 9 November 1992 in Montreal, Canada. My special talent is skateboard, wakeboard, tramp. My philosophy of life is the more you try the more you will succeed. The most important person in my life is my parents; they are always pushing me in a good way. My favourite food is sushi and thai. My favourite music is hip-hop and everything with a good beat.


Born and raised in Montreal, Sebastien 'Seb Toots' Toutant was never far from the slopes. When he broke his skis on a family holiday as a child, he had to ride out the rest of the season on one of his brother’s old snowboards. Needless to say, it wasn't long before he was hooked! The transition from rookie to expert was quick and seamless, as Seb took to the board like a duck to water.

By 2006 Seb had received widespread recognition when he took first place at Empire Shakedown’s Big Air competition in Canada. Not only did he receive a hefty ten thousand dollar cheque and a win on his home turf, but he also did it all before his fourteenth birthday! It was clear even then that Seb was set to become a snowboarding sensation.

Within two years he’d gone pro and was beginning to venture out into international competitions. Even breaking his ankle whilst training for the Innsbruck Air and Style competition in 2009 did nothing but strengthen his resolve. But Seb doesn’t just want to retread past steps, he wants to re-invent the sport. “I want to help it evolve,” he says.

Seb now has a barrage of grand slam titles under his belt, including several FIS World Cup wins, and a number of Winter X Games podium spots, including gold in the 2013 slopestyle event.

In 2014, Toutant once again proved that he is far from being a one trick poney when he claimed silver medals at both the Ride Shakedown (Big Air) and The Shred Show (Slopestyle).
