Last week I landed it in Tullari after a lot of crashes, and yesterday Jonathan shot it as I was riding on the nicest flatwater ever in Vedagrundet, Hanko. I still have to practise it a lot, cause I just land maybe 10-20 percent yet. Way [...]Read more!

Yesterday we both made it to the Tulludden beach in Hanko at the same time it was windy. I told Sofia about kitesurfing and [...]Read more!
Picture Factory is a company owned by my friends Joni and Patrik, making high quality videos for a living. Last week when I was kitesurfing i Storsand they were testing their new equipment and shooted while I was riding. The video quality is awesome, and you get a pretty good introduction to what kitesurfing is [...]Read more!
