Boomer started this one? Go figure.

I appreciate how 'beyond' Arto seems. Plus, he make skateboard really, really good.

Saw him skate Dortmund in 2001ish. He clearly was a step above the other pros. Head high switch’s 360 flips and back lipping everything. Al with such a smooth style.

What's crazy to me is how much work he put in such a small time window.

Did he blow up in like 1999? Same year he got on Flip? Then filming for Menikmati (2000) and Really Sorry (2002) at the same time. While doing some of the gnarliest tricks ever and almost dying.

That guy is nuts. And to me he was one of my first "idols", because he was the closest to a "local" pro that I had. Being from Estonia, Finland is about 2h boat ride away, finnish language is similar and we have the same national anthem (melodically, the lyrics are different).

So seeing even the Finnish flag on the boards, even the mustard graphic that he had, it was nice seeing something in skateboarding from this part of the world, so it made us also feel a lot more connected to the skate industry.

My friend's girlfriend had a huge crush on him, got a pair of his eS shoes. Him leaving eS for Etnies was a weird move but Gravis and NB afterwards were good moves even though it was short lived.

Always love his Mindfield ender, my BS tricks are horrible but I made an effort to learn BS 50s and Lipslides after seeing him do it in that part. Ranks right up there with Heath Kirchart and Ethan Fowler's BS Lipslides.

I wish gravis was still around.
