Urban Exploring: Crack The Surface

Two days ago, the first episode of the urban exploring video series Crack The Surface was published, giving some interesting and also spectacular insights into the small but exponentially growing, worldwide urban exploring scene and its culture. Those who risk it all to access and infiltrate closed, abandoned or forgotten spaces explain the what, whys, and how to’s of exploring urban space…

Garnished with some extraordinary film sequences, showing people entering underground drains and stations, climbing on roofs (Check out 12:37 – I think it’s taken from the top of The Shard tower’s construction area in London, the upcoming tallest building in the European Union!) or wading through sewage, the interviews reveal not just but also difficulties and other things urban explorers should think about.

In my eyes, after the field trip with Steve Duncan in New York, this is the best documentary about urban exploration I’ve seen so far and I’m really looking forward to watch the upcoming episodes!
