It’s always great to find out about a new skimboard crew and a new board company and that is what this blog post is about. We got a message with this skimboarding video on the Flatland Magazine Facebook Page from Joel Raivio of the Uitto Nordic Board Company.
“We are a skimboard crew from Finland and it would mean a lot to us,” Joel said. “We would like tell other skimboarders around the world that we exist. Even in this cold country in the arctic circle where summers are only two months long.”
“We have been making our own boards for ten years because there has been no way of getting boards here. Now we are trying to get the sport established here and hopefully one day make a real company of our hobby.”
The skimboarders in the video are Mikko Partanen, Miikka laakso, Markus and Aleksi Sjöberg and the filming and editing was by Joel Raivio.
