DIRECTOR

Aleksi grew up making films with friends just for fun. He studied film editing at TaiK (UIAH) Film School, in Helsinki, Finland and graduated in 2008.

He’s been working as a film editor in feature films, documentaries, music videos, commercials, and movie trailers in Finland, Europe, and Australia. Additionally, he’s directed a few short films and music videos. FinnSurf is a documentary film about something that holds a very special place in his heart.

"The conditions for surfing in Finland are what they are, and the fact that people surf in Finland shows their great love towards surfing… So great, in fact, we had to ask ourselves, Why? And so we decided to create a film—an ode to surfing. Making this film was a long and fun process. Actually, it felt really sad to finish it. Big up for everyone who was part of the process and used their talent to make the film this good! FinnSurf was born as a Finnish surfing film. It’s a documentary film about surfing in Finland and in some other parts of the world as well. We hope FinnSurf puts audiences in a good mood, and reminds them of the chance to live a dream."
