At the age of nine years old, Sebastien Toutant broke his pair of skis and picked up his brother's old snowboard. Four years later at the age of 13 he went on his first film trip with Sunset films to Mount Hood in Oregon. Toutant, aka Seb Toots, has been a big contender on the snowboard slopestyle circuit since his first win at the 2006 Empire Shakedown at Mount Saint Sauveur, Quebec just a mere hour away from his hometown of Montreal. Since then Toutant has four Shakedown titles along with countless podiums at the Winter X Games, Winter Dew Tours and several 6Star TTR events. Toutant feels that his injuries have not slowed him down at all, but they have made him progress as an athlete.
