This spot is very well known in Finland. I was there for the first time about 10 years ago; the place was very rough, but nice. About five years ago, the electric company repaired that concrete, which made the spot a little easier to skate, and cleaner looking.
When I shot this photo, I was there with Pirkka and the Perus crew. I asked all the other skaters to stand back so that I could shoot Pirkka, and told him how I wanted the shot to look. Pirkka was stoked about my idea and started to try the trick. He tried about 10 times, and then he made it.
