boarder city Helsinki

yeah, really everyone skateboardes in Helsinki! I haven’t seen any boarder in whole Vaasa during 3 weeks I have been there, but Helsinki is a boarder city! It doesn’t care if you are 12 or 35, if you are woman or men… just skateboard! yeah… And I just decided to start as well… but haven’t found anyone to teach me untill now… :-( hopefully I will find a teacher… Probably I am to old to start really… but let’s see…
Everywhere in Helsinki you can use your skateboard: just take the bikelane next to the street or even through all the parks… little and big skate parks are everywhere in the city. The one with the most beautiful view, which I have seen untill now, is near to Eiranranta, south part of city centre. Just skate and look at the sea, if you have time! Well, it has been full of 15 years old people the 2 times I have passed it untill now…
And they are even skating directly in front of my window. I am living in a area, where is less traffic and on the square outsite my window there is even no traffic at all, cars forbidden… so it is the ideal place for the local teenagers and even other young and middle old (always a question of definition) people to meet and board!
I like Helsinki!
