I found a couple of videoclips from the summer on my computer, so I decided to make a short kitesurfing video of my Finnish summer. In the video I am riding at a few different spots around Finland – Hanko, Storsand and Lohtaja and you can also find some action from the Wakespot here in [...]Read more!
Last weekend we finally got some ice here in Helsinki, so we spent a few days on the ice at Laajalahti. The surface was still pretty icy, so I did not go for any big airs, but it was perfect for practising surfacepasses and riding blind. I also got the chance to test the new [...]Read more!
Last week Jonathan and Tony edited the video material from last summer at the wakespot here in Helsinki. As you guys know I visited the cable a few times this summer, especielly during the windfree days. I did not ride there as much as I had planned to, and I struggled a little bit with [...]Read more!
Me and Jonathan decided to not buy so many christmas presents to each other this year, and instead we wisely invested in something smart – a GoPro HD Hero 3 Black Edition! I think this camera is going to see and experience a lot of things, all from snowy snowkiting in cold Norway to sandy [...]Read more!

Here in Helsinki the sea is still open, but for example in Ostrobothnia the ice is already thick and the snowkite season starts soon! I am really exited about the snowkite-season. Last year we were in Asia the whole season, so I [...]Read more!

It’s been a long time since the last blog update so I decided to write about what is going on. A few weeks ago I joined the Rip Curl team and it was really nice to meet the rest of the team at BoardExpo a few weeks back. Supernice people. Unfortunately it has not been [...]Read more!
For the last 5 days I have been on a really cool event – Airush/Starboard/Severne dealer meeting in Costa Brava, Spain. I joined the meeting togheter with the rest of Team Finland, Rautio Sports. As an Airush teamrider I got the chance to test all of their new products for season 2014, all different kites [...]Read more!
Finally I have landed the back to blind! Yeey! 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!
