Snowboarder Eero Ettala turns #helsinki into a night time urban playground.
Eero Ettala is a tour guide like no other.
When Helsinki’s traditional tour guides had packed up for the day and the Finnish city dwellers had gone to sleep, for one night only their countryman used some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks as a backdrop for urban snowboarding at its finest.
The result, in a film entitled #helsinki Transitions, was a night on the town unlike any other, this particular tour beginning – perhaps aptly – at the #helsinki Ice Hall, where Ettala did a wallride on the colossal bas-relief statue in situ.
The rails outside the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma was the next play thing for the former X Games winner, while #helsinki Cathedral, arguably the city’s most famous landmark, also played a starring role along with the so-called Cholera Basin.
Following what is a first for urban snowboarding, Ettala, who planned the whole backdrop and the tricks he performed, explained: “I wanted to present #helsinki in a new way and show #people how different architectural locations can be transformed into snowboarding spots. Your average Joe sees places differently than us snowboarders."
