10 questions with Martti Lainevool

Hey, Martti! How’s it going? You came out with a new video part called “Personal Growth”.
Let’s talk about it and a little bit of your future plans.

Q: We all know this covid shit’s going on and 2020 is gonna end soon, so how has 2020 been treating you?

A: First of all, thanks for having me. 2020 hands down has been one of the best years in my life. Riding wise, mental health wise & in general such a positive year. Obviously the whole COVID thing has been annoying but I’ve been trying to focus on the things I really love and not get too caught up in this bullshit going on right now.

Q: As you named the video “Personal Growth”, what is your biggest personal growth and why you named the video like that?

A: During the whole filming process I learned so much about myself, learned to trust myself more in situations where I didn’t feel comfortable, had so many eye-opening experiences and made me realize that once I really put my mind into it, I can overcome my fears and achieve anything.

Q: When did you start filming and where did you get motivation for this video?

A: Most of the video was actually filmed this year, as COVID made the streets empty and quiet. There’s like 3-4 clips in it from last year, but majority of it was being filmed over the past 6 months. To be honest, I just wanted to use this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, get productive and get as much cool shit as possible on the camera. Eventually myself and Andreas Taru, who was the main filmer, ended up both publishing our video parts through DIGBMX for the world to see. Worked out well in the end I’d say!

Q: Who has been the biggest inspiration for your riding?

A: Well, obviously my big brother Andres Lainevool has been a huge influence for me since I grew up idolizing him and I still do to this day. Other than that, my homies, my beautiful girlfriend Laureen & the whole BMX scene gets me hyped and motivated to ride. Nothing beats a good session with your boys, having a blast. Seeing video parts and cool projects by all the PRO’s is always a fun time and makes me wanna ride my bike so bad also haha.

Q: There is so many bangers.
What clip was mentally hardest to film for you ? Now or never situations?

A: Haha, thank you. I tried my hardest. Hmmm, there was plenty. For an example, ender has been in my mind since I started filming “INDIGO” part but never got the courage to send it. Having a good company and vibe while filming is so important. Also had many-many mental breakdowns throughout filming but thankfully the homies always cheered me the fuck up. There was a couple of things I wanted to get done for this but no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t get them. Will get them done for the next one for sure.

Q: Which clip is your favorite and why?

A:  Feeble/ 60/40 hard 180 down the ledge-rail setup in the beginning of HD part was something I was really hyped on, had this spot on my mind for a long time as well and glad I got it done. Also the bars to wallride off the loading dock was a pleasing one.

Q: During the video you can hear psssss…
How many tires did you blow up? Or did you break any bikeparts?

A: Nice one. Most of the time filming I got 1-2 flats a day which was not nice at all haha. Also went through three front rims because they couldn’t hold up with all the drops I did. Thankful as fuck to the homies giving spare parts and get back to rolling again.
Wouldn’t be possible without you guys. 

💟

Q: What is next big project where you gonna put yourself in?

A: For now, I’m not sure. I’m genuinely happy that I finished this one and got the documentary done as well this year. Ofcourse I would like to hop on and start banging them tricks straight away but the weather sucks here right now and travelling situation is a grey-area as well. Hopefully soon all will be fine. Next piece is gonna be full HD though, done with the VX bullshit haha.

Q: Any plans in your personal life?

A: I’m seeking constant improvement as a person. Trying to be the best me. Working on bettering myself each and every day. Been thinking of moving to Barcelona within the next 2 years, so that’s a huge plan and goal for me and my girl. Let’s hope for the best.

Q: Want to thank someone or say some kind words?!

A: Yes yes yes, first things first shoutout to the main plug STONED STREET for catching up with me, always supporting and showing love, I appreciate it. I wanna thank Andreas Taru and other homies who took their time to capture some moments for me, wouldn’t be possible without you guys. Also, ParBMX for quick shipments when my bike broke down, VANS for keeping your mans drippin’ & Elinart Tattoo for putting art on my skin. Thank you and I hope the viewers enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed riding my bike while filming for it! NAMASTEEe ☮️

STONED STREET IN Barcelona – HFCYB (VIDEO & GALLERY)

We know it was a long time ago when we first went to Barcelona with our crew.

But today is the day we want you to see the video and get a little backstory of it & why the video’s name is “HFCYB” = “HOW FUCKED CAN YOU BE”.

Where to start, hmm… First things first, we gathered together in Finland and chilled a couple of days in Helsinki before our flight. For the most of us, it was a first real catch up with the boys, get to know each others and so on.

Flight went in the morning so we arrived 7AM in Barcelona and the hustle to find our AirBNB began.

Building up our bikes

I, as a team manager, fucked up with our apartment. I accidently booked our apartment out of Barcelona on some LA Ramble mountains. Sorry for this, haha. So it was quite a challenge to get there in first time with all the bike bags with us. We didn’t want to order a taxi either, because of a low budget we had.

Coffee break

So it became clear to us that we have to take one hour train trip to La Ramble and then hike up to some mountains.

Martti wasn’t too happy about the train trips, like most of us.
Up in the mountains, down there you can see La Ramble

But anyway, for all the guys, it was first time experience to ride out there. So we were super stoked to get there and the apartment was really cozy with a small pool and everything. Too bad that our last train left 00AM from Barcelona to La Ramble, but we found something to ride every night at our local village. Days were long, train trip to Barcelona at noon, back from the city 3-4 am in the morning. Whole day pedaling around and filming.

Our balcony
Hillbombing this every morning was tight.

To blast down this road was fun but riding without brakes, our shoes weren’t too stoked on it haha. This hill was huge and every night, we had to climb up it and it took us at least 1- 1,5h to get back home. You can see some hillbombs in our video also.

We were stupid enough and hungry for a ride that we didn’t take any day off riding. And this was a big mistake. Bodies were sore, bikes were breaking down. We wanted in first of point to save all the footy for the DVD, but later, when we looked them clips, the boys weren’t happy enough on the clips and decided to not use them in DVD. Lesson learned. Next time we’re taking a 10 day trip at least and 2-3 days off for chill.

Back when our bikes broke down. So Joona’s handlebar got bent, Martti’s back wheel was done with, Henri chain was into two pieces. And all that happened in one day, haha. We then went to visit 360BS shop, and of course, it was on the other side of Barcelona, so half a day went right there.

Bike problems got fixed with great help from 360BS bikeshop.

So we got our bikes fixed and filming session started again. Barcelona has so many spots that we we’re little bit messed up with decisions what to ride. But at least we saw all the ”famous” spots and even rode few of them also. Too bad that there was some kind of a sieast party down at the beach big wawes and we couldn’t ride it at all. But we are already planning a trip to go back in 2020, right after Simple Session.

These sunny mornings
Supermarket

HAHAHA, this one was got us in giggles, we we’re filming with Martti in a spot and the workers we’re painting walls and all the paint dripped down on a car. Dude even tried to clean it all up but messed up even more.

We loved Supermercats
And the hype was strong
Man model of the year
Bars between filming

This was our first longest trip togheter as a crew and it was just fire. Much more to come, life is good! PS! Smoked way too much, haha. I hope you like this backstory.

I also asked all the team riders to describe their experience in Barcelona with the whole crew and here’s what the guys said:

MARTTI: YOOO, Barcelona was sick. It was my first time there and I’ve always dreamed of visiting it. It was such a good time with the whole crew and loved every second of it. The palm trees, warm weather, insane spots and almighty devil’s lettuce… Haha, all around just good vibes. Can’t wait for an another trip with the boys!

Raner: Really good time with all the buds and lots of great ideas for the future.

Joona: Barcelona trip with Stoned Street crew was definitely one of the best riding experiences so far for me. It has always been dream of mine to go ride and film in there with good people. Too much stuff to ride for short period of time and we didn’t get to ride every spot we wanted so definitely must go back! Can’t wait!

Ragner: For me it was a great experience as a team manager. First big trip for the crew. Its my 2nd trip to Barcelona and I’m still not getting enough of this city atmosphere, not speaking about spots, wow. Definitely going soon back, although we are already organizing the next trip. Trying not to do same mistake like last time, haha, these long train trips up some hills, lol. Sorry for that.

Henri: Its hard to tell what I loved most about the trip because the whole trip was just lit. But if I have to point out something I would say that the spots what Barcelona have to offer and the vibes while cruising around the city. A negative side I would say the location of accommodation but even with long distance it was easy with this crew.

Oulu Trip

Hey,

last August 2018 we started talking with boys about Oulu skatepark. Never been there and only heard good about it. So in September me and Niko headed to Jyväskylä, where we catched up with Joona and Toni. Joona and Toni came from Tampere and we came from Helsinki. Locals were kind enough to show us street spots and skateparks. So we decided to be there over night. It was so dark outside and we thought that this is cool place near lake and set up our camping. On friday morning we woke up and there was some school gym class doing their exercise with teacher, haha, fun times.

We ate and continued our journy to Oulu. On the road we found another nice lake and we went for swimming. As you know Finland have over 180 000 lakes.

When we arrived to Oulu, first check out skatepark, i did not belive, this huge, about 4000 m² skatepark exist so far away from capital city. 600km+, like what? But anyway boys were hungry to ride and on first day we didn’t film that much. On some time local Miika Pantsar and his girlfriend joined and they showed us more about Oulu. Ou and i remember how cold it was. We didn’t find any proper place to stay that night, so we just hung our hammocks somewhere on trees. No fireplace. Huh that was cold night.

Next day was super sunny. We ate, washed on local swimming pool and headed back to skatepark, like hippies. We spent whole day filming and actually got some good footy for you. 3rd night was lil bit easier, we found pretty fast a place to stay and everything was chill.

I’m sure, that there will be another roadtrip on 2019. This was only good times, laughing and rock’n’roll! Anyway take a look of that trip video and we really hope you like it! Enjoy!

Thanks for your time!

STONED STREET at RABA5

Hey, hey people!

Boys went to check out new indoor skatepark in Estonia, Pärnu, called RABA5. This video shows exactly how fun this little trip was. Park is good and smooth, we did like it a lot. Huge shout out goes to Rasmus Paimre for building and letting us ride after closing time.

Hope you enjoy the video! Thanks for your time! Peace!

STONED STREET – “MOVED UNDERGROUND”

Hey everybody!

As you know the CREW is from ESTONIA/FINLAND and here is winter time right now. So we moved to indoors. “Stoned Street – Moved Underground” name came from indoor called “Kontula Skatepark”. It’s about 50-100m down stairs in the cave. So everytime you go to ride its like moving from reality to underground.

We had a lots of fun trips when making it. In Helsinki area isnt that much rideable skateparks so we went Estonia and also visited Tampere, Finland.

On these trips Karel and Henri started more often to join us and so they become to us like a family. We want to Welcome these yung guns in our crew. I promise you will see big things come up in future from them!

I wont hold you anymore with my writing, so go watch the video and share it with your friends! Keep on riding, bros! #stonedstreet #bmx
