Skate Recon

Skate Recon around Portland on Earth Patrol

Technology is your friend when it comes to finding skate terrain. The recently improved Google Maps satellite imagery is amazing to say the least and we used it to pick out some of the local skate spots around Portland. Combine this technology with a real estate search engine like Zillo and you have the perfect tools for finding those elusive backyard skate havens. Check out our aerial survey after the turn that includes the first five of the proposed nineteen Portland skate parks along with a few bonus spots. EPM “Orwellian Skatetopia” Out!
