Jaakko Ojanen, Madars Apse, Angelo Caro and Zack Wallin break themselves off skating the modern cities of the Mayan lands of Guatemala, Belize and Mexico.
Part 2 coming on December 11!
The Mayan civilization was one of the most important in the pre-Columbian Americas. Their territory extended from southern Mexico along through Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador; they had a fully developed writing system and an incredibly accurate calendar. But the Mayas are also shrouded in mystery; their sudden disappearance from their main cities right before the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors remains unresolved to this day, although several theories exist.
