For two days in October 2014 some of the best skateboarders from East and West were connected to share their passion on the top of the world at Finland’s Helsinki Airport. This first-ever skate session was directed and hosted by Arto Saari and includes his Flip Skateboards teammates Curren Caples and Louie Lopez along with Golden Tickets winners Matt Berger, Hiroyuki Matsuo, Kasperi Kropsu, Andreas Larsen and Gosha Konyshev.
Have a look at the amazing footage from a 48-hour period when these heavily skilled skaters got access to totally unique skate spots to test the limits of the gateway between East and West.
