I'm gonna say something and it might be controversial but 2021 element team is a pretty good one. They kicked out nyjah and that domo dude and it just made it 100 times better. They have some pretty talented and creative dudes on right now, Jaako, Eetu, Rafa Cort, Vini Costa (brazillian but whatever)...

excuse me?

@brucewillis is Brazilian, I think he just meant that Rafa and Vini are in the Brazilian Element program and not in the actual international team.

Rafa is french, Vini is Brazillian. Their international team is sick.

Need to settle a bet, what trick did Jaako do out of that ride on 50-50 at the end?

It's happening, focusing more on Euro and Japan teams. Element is in a better place without that dude Johnny involved. He's probably out beating his drum with bam in the woods somewhere.

Absurd levels of skills and creativity all around, what a feast. Jaako is just out of this world, and I enjoyed this one much more than that last DC part he had.

I wouldn't want to be the Quartersnacks Top Ten guy this week.

Edit: Also, wow to this:


Fun fact, this obstacle is a skateable sculpture in Jaakko’s honor in front of the town hall (iirc) in his hometown.

More clips here, including more angles of the kickflip fakie https://youtu.be/3DzHamxSr_k

That was so good.

It's impressive how many good skaters come from Finland, with only 5 million inhabitants and crappy weather

The weather might be a benefitting factor. When you can only skate outside for half the year you might appreciate the opportunities you get more. Plus for a long time there weren’t good skateparks widely available  so you were forced to skate mainly street. Indoor facilities for the wintertime have been even more rare so I think most people won’t skate year round.

I have heard that the dominant theory in youth development currently is that generally the great athletes have exposure to many different sports and hobbies growing up so when they eventually focus on one they have a broader base to start building on. People like Tiger Woods are more rare.

Was a bit disappointed, since the song was used very recently in a Finnish homie vid, but whatever. Love the track too, btw.


And this part's insane, these guys are just way too good.
