Helsinki Hustle in Pictures

Cruysberghs, Zwijsen, Nyberg & co skate Finland - in photos.

A few days back we ran an edit put together by Lucas Fiederling featuring Axel Cruysberghs, Jarne Verbruggen, Phil Zwijsen, Samu Karvonen, Eniz Fazliov, Albert Nyberg, Wes Kremer, Marius Sylvainen, Tuukka Rajala and friends.

This huge squad of heavy hitters merged in Helsinki, Finland to log hammers for Lucas’ full length indie flick 'Where we come from'.

Accompanying the chaps were photographers Sam Clarke and Aleksi Fraki.

There was some potential, spot-wise, at the building site underneath this bridge all summer, but when we went to take a look the landing was now unskateable. Which didn’t stop Eniz.

This industrial area is like a moto-theme park. Adding to the fact that Samu obviously had to be car-towed to the launch, there were two young daredevils on motorbikes burning rubber and doing wheelies. They were pretty determined – just like Samu.

You just have to gather a big enough crowd – there’s always one in a good mood and with cold beverage at hand.

This ledge had been around for a while, but was just made skateable again. It needed some fixing to make boardslides and lipslides possible, but we managed to jerry-rig it. On rare occasions, Lucas actually manages to put somebody else behind the camera and join the session.
