What does your everyday disc golf routine look like?
During the off season my disc golf training has been a lot less than I would’ve liked, mostly because of work and family taking up all of my time (and the lack of light in the winter). During the season I usually get to the course about 1-2 times a week, start with a bit of fieldwork, putts and then a round or a couple. I try to work with my putt more at home this season now that I’ve got a proper basket.
Tell us about your favorite Kastaplast disc
I love them all 🙂 I guess I have to say Kaxe, simply because it was my first (=K=) back in 2014. It immediately felt like no other disc before, and the multifunctional usability amazes me to this day. K3 Rekos have proven to be solid putting putters for me, and both K2 Berg and K1 Rekos are perfect for the upshots. Loving all of the drivers as well, can’t wait to see what comes next. All of the plastics have really unique and high quality feel to them, comparing to other brands.
What is your best disc golf memory?
I was introduced to the sport back in 2004 and I was living in Tampere, next to Epilä DiscGolfPark back then. In 2006 J. Meresmaa organised the first Major in Europe just next door to me, so it was a huge thing to see the best disc golfers in the wolrd in action for 2 years in a row. Especially when Ken “The Champ” Climo hoisted the basket after winning the tournament in 2007 and signed my disc! Good times.
Name one of your odd talents, or, what you like to do when not throwing plastic
I have quite a few 🙂 Maybe one of them could be that I can “throat whistle”, either with my mouth open or through the nose. And blow air from my eye.
