Beginner Tip

Learn to throw putters. Learn to love the short game. Find peace of mind on the course and don’t be afraid of making mistakes.

Most Memorable Moment

I attended Tyyni for the first time in 2018 and it was an amazing experience. I played two solid rounds that put me in the lead card. After the final round I was tied on 2nd place with three other players. The sudden-death ended in my favor and I took home the trophy for 2nd place of MA2 division.

Disc Golf Career Goals

I am hoping to participate in and arrange some of the finest events around Finland and represent Westside Discs to the best of my ability. Always continue to work on improving my skills as a player both physically and mentally.

In The Bag


Westside Discs VIP Hatchet

The most understable disc in my bag. I use it for hyzerflips, turnovers, standstill shots, and even short overhand shots.

Latitude 64 Opto Saint

I carry three Opto Saints. They are my go-to for most shots between 90-105m (290-340ft). Incredibly versatile disc with plenty of glide.

Latitude 64 Opto Saint Pro

Slightly more overstable than the Saint with similar feel in the hand. I use it for straight drives and hyzers in moderate headwind.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Felon

Reliably overstable fairway driver for windy days. Mostly used for backhand hyzers, flex shots, and skip shots."

Dynamic Discs Lucid Trespass

I usually carry three Trespasses. They are my go-to for max distance drives and long turnovers.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Enforcer

I also carry three Enforcers in different stages of wear from straight to very overstable. Good glide, reliable fade. I use them for long hyzers and max distance in the wind.

Westside Discs VIP Fortress

Slightly faster and a bit less overstable disc than the Felon. Same consistency with more distance potential. The deeper rim makes it more comfortable for me to forehand.


Latitude 64 Opto Fuse

Fuse is used mostly for tunnel-shots, hyzerflips, and turnovers with no fade in the end.

Westside Discs VIP Warship

I carry 2-3 Warships at any given time. They are used for straight drives and approaches up to 95m (310ft). Easily controllable disc with amazing glide!

Dynamic Discs Lucid Verdict

Hyzers and forehands, straight drives, and approaches in a headwind.

Westside Discs VIP Anvil

Latest addition to the bag. Really overstable midrange for forehand approaches, hyzers, and trick-shots.


Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Judge

I have been putting with the Judge since 2013. I also use them for straight approaches and drives up to 70m (230ft).

Westside Discs BT Soft Shield

I always carry two Shields. They are my main throwing putters for almost any backhand shot under 75m (250ft). Reliably straight disc even in the wind with moderate fade in the end.

Westside Discs BT Soft Harp

The Harp is my go-to approach disc (especially in the wind) for short backhand and forehand shots. I love the BT Soft plastic because it sticks where it lands with no skip.

Westside Discs BT Soft Swan 1 Reborn

Swan 1 Reborn is my most understable utility disc for short hyzerflips and trick-shots in the woods.
