If you haven’t checked out The Earthers with our friend Jake Keenan before, we suggest you take a look at the past episodes to understand Jake’s secret power for finding unusual and virginal skate spots. His method relies on mankind’s biggest tool/enemy: Google.
Last time out, Jake took us around his home state of Michigan to skate a bunch of sketchy roof spots that maybe Jaws would love, but would be non-spots for the rest of us. Now, Jake is out in New Mexico with some old friends, taking a more traditional route. He’s driving around exploring the ditches, nooks, and crannies of the desert and dropping right in.
Enjoy the latest episode of Google Earthers™ as we traverse the globe via satellite imagery, pinpointing locations, and testing out the spots in person. Try Jake’s method for yourself or just sit back and watch him do all the work.
