Helsinki Hookup

The last weekend in May 2010 will witness Helsinki become the European skateboarding capital.

For one week and two weekends, Helsinki will be the center of several skateboarding-related events such as shows, competitions (Proskate: professional contest and Finnish Championships), and festivities as well as host several exhibitions, letting people in on skateboarding culture.

Naturally, skating will take place at the numerous skatespots of Helsinki, and teaching on how to skateboard will also be organized.

All this aims at reinforcing skateboarding by exposing the public to skateboarding and its volume, importance, and variety.
