New skate event HELride brings the skating back to the streets where it belongs. We’re breaking the usual competition forms and rules and to be honest it’s not a competition at all! This weekend Helsinki will be filled with top skaters all over europe just to skate and have a good time! The Event is free for all the spectators and the ramps we build will stay skateable to everyone for the rest of the summer.
Friday evening the front yard of KIASMA, the modern Musem of Art will fire up when we open a massive few meters tall, about ten meters wide Midramp. The Ramp jam is part of Urban art festival and for sure will gather a nice audience to see 30 skaters jamming the brand new ramp with it’s special extension.
Saturday starts with a funny 80’s style session as part of the BLOCK PARTY festival that takes over the streets of Kallio. For the evening we’ll come back to the future and move to THE SUVILAHTI DIY park to see who clears the track fastest on this years DEATH RACE and who makes the best tricks on the newest obstacles that the park has to offer.”
