  • Player Bio

    Joakim is the ultimate athlete, with the perfect combination of power, flexibility, body control and endurance that a top notch freestyler can dream of. A great interest in and knowledge of all kinds of workout, nutrition and mental training has made Jocke a freestyler to look out for. Coming back to international competition at the FPA Worlds in 1997 was a major factor in Jockes reborn love for the game. Since then he has worked hard and every year has given Jocke a greater arsenal of tools.

    When Jocke plays, his main goal is to have a workout, to really work up a sweat. His game combines therefore a lot of bodyspins and high kicking legs, flying catches and brush&roll runs. You will see him play both spins without any problems, doing tipping combos and skid combos, probably you will see him scarecrow brush to him self, ending it beautiful in a double spinning flying Barrel, or in a perfectly controlled, well stretched Flamingitosis or Flamingosis.
