Roope and the Tree Ramp

roopetonteri_taavetie_blotto_4846

Earlier this summer I made my way to Helsinki, Finland to meet up with Roope Tonteri out on his family’s land to skate and photograph his freshly built mini ramp in the trees, talk about a cool backyard DIY project! Stoke factor was at an all time high getting to photograph the creation, take a few runs, spend some time in the sauna and float the lake.

These are the first few photos from the tree ramp on day one, many more to show you in the coming days as we disassembled the ramp and moved it out onto the water. You can see a great edit Teemu Heljo put together HERE, give it a look, it’s pretty dang cool. Blotto

Huge thanks to the Tonteri Family for their efforts in making this mini ramp dream possible, Roope for his non-stop skateboarding, Teemu for filming and editing, and Red Bull Finland for supporting the project. For a Behind the Scenes look into the weekend I created on Fligagram, click HERE.
