Tuukka Korhonen

Despite the busy life—touring to promote the new Blueprint film, Make Friends With the Colour Blue—etnies Europe rider, Tuukka Korhonen, sacrificed a few minutes of his precious time to entertain us. The MFWTCB tour is currently hitting Europe and will be landing in Los Angeles on April 25. Catch it if you can.

Top three skate spots in Helsinki:
  1. KIasma/Posti/Kamppi/Downtown. A few spots real close to each other, a mini ramp and some nice parks to chill at!
