It's been almost exactly 6 months since I moved to Orange County from San Jose, CA and I think I'm finally finding my niche in the local scene. I've made friends, local riders know my name and style, and I'm finding my way around different spots. I moved here supposedly for college, knowing that there was an amazing riding scene here. There is no doubt in my mind that my vert riding has improved, which is exactly what I wanted, right. I didn't have a ramp in the Bay, so I moved somewhere where I could improve my vert skills. It IS paying off, for sure, I'm learning new tricks and dialing in tricks that frustrated me so much during the summer.
I just don't know how much longer I want to stay here. You can't beat the weather, the fine looking ladies, the local companies, the new friends, etc., but it definitely does not feel like the place I am going to permanently live. At least that's how I feel about the city of Orange, maybe the Inland Empire, or Santa Ana or Anaheim can offer something different.
If I had everything my way, I would buy my own vert ramp, and buy some land in South San Jose, right off of 101 and 85, and start a little vert scene in the Bay. Hey, if TJ Lavin can start a dirt scene in Las Vegas from scratch, then I can take a group of Bay Area riders and help emm out by providing a vert ramp.
That's really I've got to say. I've been working on vert 540's, so it's only a matter of time until that becomes part of my run.
