Has anyone else noticed that certain areas produce riders with VERY similar styles? I notice this with the NYC riders the most. Lots of whips, bars, rails, and medium speed stuff, and steeze. And the from lots of the L.A. riders I have seen It's a lot of little jibby stuff or big, burly setups.

Yes. I think it's about what you like though. Where I'm from, there is a lot of trails stuff happening. But there is still no shortage of tricks being done from street people.

I think it's kind of put on. I don't really believe that. I think that NYC riders ride that way because they have that sort of stuff to ride. It's really about the people who influence their riding and the environment. I wouldn't consider myself sliding into any category. I just like to do tricks and have a good time.

I like the SD area stuff. Reynolds, Enarson, Morrow, and I don't know where Mike Grey is from, but he's got that burly but trick filled style. That east coast sfuff is super nice though. Probobly my second favorite style.

Punjab, Taj, Chris Doyle, and Mike Aitken are my top favorite riding styles for sure! Punjab's part in the Standard Domination video still gets me pumped to ride lol

Out here in SoCal specifically where i live it's a lot of messing around with outside the box combos (serious or not) as well as a lot of ledges. Also pretty much everyone I ride with has a free coaster and 3-4 plastic pegs so grinding really bad surfaces is something I see/do a lot

It seems to me like a lot of the west coast style riding is super clean and is focused on big dialed, and east coast riding is also more raw in a way? Just my thoughts. And then there's obivously the PA trail scene haha

i noticed this alot with the salt lake city guys, it seems like every pro rider that comes from out of SLC is super creative and/or stylish.

There are always exceptions, but environment is the main factor to how you ride. Most kids locally ride ledges and rails, because the super good locals ride that.

I ride front and rear brakes and whatever sounds fun. They all have 3-4 pegs and no brakes, and most have or are saving for a coaster.
