Jaako first travelled to the Salar de Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia about 20 years ago, as a tourist. He slept in a salt hotel, travelled around the salt flats and met the salt workers who had their own quarry and produced salt bricks.

Years later he started to think about skateboarding projects that would be different or out of the norm. Perhaps not surprisingly, one of the first things that came to mind was the Uyuni salt flats and skating on them; but he wasn t sure if this could be done. Jaakko did a little research and found out through videos and friends that the salt flats might be skateable. Watch and enjoy the fruits of his heavy labours!
