HELride 2019 gallery

James Griffiths spent last week at HELride, Helsinki’s annual skate event – similar in spirit to CPH Open (free, open and somewhat wild) – which this year included stops at well-known downtown street spots, a big event at the Suvilahti DIY and last but not least, the KOFF race, organised by our friend Marc-Antoine Marcoux. Many thanks to Samu Karvonen and everyone else who helped organise this year’s HELride.
