Suvilahti skatepark – expanding and finishing
During the past five years a group of dedicated skaters have been building the biggest DIY skatepark in Finland to Suvilahti. Now they want to fill the last remaining space and that's were they need your support!
Around 2010 many skaters dream became reality when the city of Helsinki granted a 900m2 space for them to build a skatepark on their own terms. Construction started in spring 2011 right after the snow melted.
During these 5 years we have poured about 60 cubic meters of concrete. Many have learnt how to work with concrete within these thousands of hours and today some of us do skateparks around the world as their profession.
SuvilahtiDIY have hosted many international events and gained a lot of positive coverage on around different medias.
Non of the workers get paid so every dime goes to the construction materials like concrete, rebars, bricks and fillers. Please help us make this already wonderful park even better!
As a reward for your support we offer few different things like patches, scarfs and t-shirt (which last two are only sent to Finnish addresses, sorry). There is also possibility to get your name on our wall (graffiti) or on a skateable Tombstone which will be mounted ceremonially on our skatepark!
