It's time to mix things up a bit. The last From the Air seemed to trip people up, so I've decided to take a new spin on the game. This time, I've used Google Earth to pick out locations around the world. And rather than give you a flat two-dimensional view of the area, I've allowed for some ... perspective. However, this doesn't necessarily make it easier. Instead of the standard "north-centric" views, these can come at any angle. And while we've used some of these locations in earlier challenges, most of them are brand new. So good luck and have fun!

2.) fiji?

4.) daytona beach?

said Sheriff Pablo on March 10, 2010 2:16 AM.

Sorry Sheriff, you're (sort of) in the right hemisphere with Fiji ... but much more cosmopolitan. It's not Daytona, but a much more historical beach.

said Echowood on March 10, 2010 9:06 AM.

2.) old orchard beach?

3.) oahu, hawaii?

said Sheriff Pablo on March 10, 2010 1:48 PM.

Nope. Here are some more hints... (By the way, I screwed up and thought Hong Kong was #2. #2 is NOT in the same hemisphere as Fiji)

2. Some say mountain biking was invented near here.
4. No other beach in the world can be credited as being an area that so significantly "turned the tide."
