Some places seem unskateable.
For much of the year, Saarijärvi, a small rural town in the middle of Finland, is buried under several feet of snow. It’s far from the most promising terrain for a skateboard addict. But Jaakko Saavalainen’s DIY attitude proves anywhere can become a skate utopia — if you’re willing to put in the work.
