The Speak Two The Wind mini-series follows a crew, which includes skater-turned-photographer Arto Saari and Collin Provost, as they amble across the USA and into Germany, only stopping to camp by a ridiculously picturesque lake or shred an inner-city spot.

Here’s the very first episode for your delectation:
