Finnish skateboarder turned photographer Arto Saari hosted a pretty unique invitational recently, giving skaters the opportunity to session Helsinki Airport. The video is definitely a promotion for the airport and airline involved, and they probably should have cut out 90% of the voiceover, but it’s still pretty cool. Somehow I don’t see this happening in any American airport any time soon.
