Helsinki Skateplaza Opens

One of Europe’s finest street skaters at the minute, Janne Saario, can handle a drawing board and measure just as well as he can hold onto long manuals. The young Finn recently designed a brand new skate plaza for the Northern capital, Helsinki, as part of his architectural work.

Well, now the park is open and everybody is super stoked. The park is sponsored by Element and free for all to enjoy. Let’s hope Janne can design a few more, or even inspire city councils to turn to skaters when it comes to designing and building the landscape.

Check out footage and pictures here.

Don’t forget the world premiere of Elementality Vol.2 which will broadcast live on September 1st by visiting this link:
