During my time in London I was lucky to get to know an amazing group of females – Nefarious Skate Crew. I started skateboarding just a couple months before moving to the UK, and at that point I was super nervous to even show up at a skate park. Luckily it didn’t take long until I met a few of the girls who had recently founded Nefarious, and they immediately asked if I wanted to join the crew. Even with my non-existing skateboarding skills I was now in a skate crew, ha.
Even though that year was difficult in many ways, it was also filled with the raddest of times with my crew. I couldn’t be more happy to have met a group of such inspiring, supportive women. Now that I’m back in Finland we may not see each other that often anymore, but I know we’ve always got each other’s back.
So imagine my excitement last summer when I received a message from four of the girls that they were coming to visit me in Helsinki. Esther, Jenny, Olivia and Paula stayed with me in my tiny 27 sq meter apartment for a long weekend in August during which they got to see what Helsinki had to offer in terms of skate spots.
Cheers for the good times! Come back!
