Teen Vogue: Meet the Navajo Nation Skateboarder Going Viral on TikTok. “Naiomi Glasses, a Diné skateboarder in Navajo nation, happened upon a red sandstone slope to skate on — in her now-viral TikTok — by accident. ‘I live in the middle of nowhere and when I found that first sandstone, I was out looking for sheep. My grandma owns sheep and sometimes they get lost, and I thought the sandstone looked skate-able.’ With the nearest skatepark hours away, Naiomi resorted to turning the desert landscape into her own skatepark.”
CNET: I’m a dad who skateboards to find some sanity under quarantine. “This pandemic has got me doing some crazy things. I made wine and brewed beer in my Instant Pot. I burned scores of logs testing multiple fire pits. I’ve consumed massive amounts of coffee and espresso for various other product roundups (to be fair, I usually do that). My newest activity is the most terrifying, yet it’s also the most therapeutic. After a 20-year hiatus, I’ve returned to skateboarding.”
Jenkem Magazine, and do not @ me because I thought this was charming, in a sweary skateboardy kind of way: Discovering Skate Spots Via Google Earth. “You may have seen this part we shared of our friend, Jake Keenan, who seems to have a secret power for finding unusual and virgin skate spots. Well, it turns out he doesn’t just run across these spots randomly. He has a method, and it’s equally nerdy and impressive, thanks to mankind’s biggest tool / enemy: Google.” Fair amount of swearing, but then you get to watch them skateboard. Video with article.
