As you might remember from that Dickies video, Jake Johnson has been posting up in his hometown of State College, PA while he’s not traveling. Home to Penn State’s largest campus, and at the literal center of rural Pennsylvania, State College has a small but tight-knit scene, built around the small-town staples: D.I.Y. spots, curbs in parking garages, and backyard mini ramps.
Around those spots though, is frats. Lots and lots of frats. Zeta Psi is one of the most notorious ones, in that it was booted from Penn State for four years because of a gnarly hazing scandal. While Zeta Psi sat empty last summer, the skaters from State College would post up in their vacant backyard, using it as a spot to hang out after hours once the session was over. “A new frat moved in this year, but it was good times,” Jake said.
“Zeta Cacti” is a fun bro cam video compiled Ben Wentz, chronicling the 2019 scene in State College — which frankly, we haven’t seen much of since those footy tapes of Jake skating in 2006 got uploaded, if that ;)
