I attended Ekstremsportveko for the first time in 2001. Since that, I have been in love with the festival and Voss. I met so many positive persons that included me in Vekostunts and projects around Voss. That has for sure helped the sport of BASE jumping as an accepted activity and me as an athlete. I'm always stoked to go back to Veko to meet my friends and have a blast as always.
