Skateboarding on a spinning ice carousel

Roope Tonteri and Jaakko Ojanen skate mini ramp transitions on an spinning ice carousel. You may already be familiar with the crazed wanderings of Tonteri’s travelling mini-ramp. The Finnish snowboarder has resolved the quandary of ‘nice ramp, shame about the neighbourhood’ by bringing his own ramp to just about wherever his heart may roam.

High in the treeline or floated out across a lily-pond lake, and now onto the ice floes of a dead Finnish winter, Tonteri’s mini ramps are a thing of wonder. For full effect, they cut a massive disc out of the ice using chainsaws so that the ramp could gently spin to catch the wilderness panorama while they skated.

Join them for frozen skating in Finland.
