Throwback Thursdays with Martti Kuoppa

MK in action from Martti Kuoppa on Vimeo.

The big news this week, Martti Kuoppa relaunched the iconic brand, Junglerider after a ten year hiatus. It’s a no brainer to dedicate this week’s Throwback to the man I called “The boss”. Watch this part back, this would be a Must Watch without a doubt if this dropped today, timeless flatland and many of these switches remain untouched….

  1. man.. whopper one hand is still too much i can handle.. how is that possible??????
    and all these other combos and tricks, on that vid and on previous others, for many years!! (and i recall i read somewhere that some tapes were stollen from him longtime ago and then that is also lost tricks..)
    Mad mad mad respects to MK!!

  2. Ain’t all surprised even though first time l saw the 1 handed whopper! Wow! It’s debatable who’s the best double footed maestro, & barspinner, but 1 thing’s for certain, MK thinks outside the norm, & we should all be grateful for how & what he created. To think some 1 stole his tapes, is similar to lost tapes of fine muscians . Love the Jimmy Hendrix song here. Thanks so much MK & E. It’s why and how someone else said, l look forward to these & all the other parts, of this great site.

  3. And l haven’t even watched all of this, I’m still pickin up my jaw, after only 2mins!. You can just see & feel Martii’s enthusiasm , as though he knows, he’s got that ‘great feeling ‘ we get, when we nail something original & in this case, so damn friggin hard!!!!

  4. Oh man, so much to love here. Take your pick, the x-foited cliff , the megaspin > whip> decade, an awesome bag. In fact, that’s just a infinite piece, added to MK’s other links…Oh, can’t forget the steam, straight to no crack. Man, l feel as if I’m mire than an Og,cos he makes me inferior. The level here, is beyond next level, next month, haha!. I’m goin to stretch it & say, l reckon MK would destroy most of today’s pros & this was years ago. What does that say????

  5. The realness right here, with a level few will ever get too. This part stands the test of time, this whole era should go down as one of the most legendary era’s in the history of flatland. I was stoked to be a part of this era with Martti. rad news Junglerider is back!

  6. Couldn’t have said it better E & l was thinking about it, being a great part of the era, to. You could add, Martii owned this era to.
