Skating has established its place in the permanent group of new voluntary sports. It is no longer just a children’s game or just a youth hobby. More than five years ago, a 40-year-old skater and a girl skater were rarities – not anymore. Skating is good exercise that develops body control. This is explained by e.g. the fact that the Finnish Heart Association awarded the Skeittiliito an award for promoting the health and exercise of young people.

Hangup is a special media focused on skateboarding. Over the years, Upi has become the only real skateboarding magazine that offers its readers both international international skateboarding and the skateboarding of its Finnish culture, preferably skateboarders in their own language, a tip from the scene through its editors. Today, Hang Up magazine is published once. With Hang Up, you can be part of this hard-to-reach group of pioneers and the diverse spectrum of youth cultures.
