We finally made it to California after being stuck in traffic for hours. First stop was a frickin' full pipe. Then a skatepark was ridden, followed by our first night on blow-up mattresses. Next day was spent exploring Huntington Beach, then we headed to Hollywood and Los Angeles, stopped at the ONSOMESHIT store and visited Alfredo Mancuso, and rode a miniramp behind Brooklyn Projects. Then we made our way to Venice with our friend Danny Josa and camped in a backyard in the suburbs of LA.
The gang heads to St. George, Utah on the way to Vegas for a super hot session at a skatepark there. They show up in Las Vegas that night and Rob gets hired within the first 10 minutes, James wins some money gambling, and Mason sleeps in the car throughout the whole thing. Vegas skateparks were ridden and they witnessed a fight over a fidget spinner.
James, Rob, and Mason slept in the car in Breckenridge and woke up to snow. Then they tried to ride skateparks around the mountains in Colorado but the rain followed all day. Hot springs were visited, the tent was set up on a cliff, a park ranger was angry, and they stumbled upon some dirt jumps. Successful last day in Colorado.
Mason, Rob, and James drive into Colorado after leaving Amarillo and meet up with their friend Jason Lorenz. Many skateparks were ridden, mountains were partially climbed, cities were explored, and great food was eaten. We also slept in a garage at one point. Huge thanks to Jason for the tour of your beautiful state and the hospitality!
We got into Austin and had a thousand things we wanted to do so we ended up staying for 2 days to ride several amazing concrete parks, eat incredible food, explore the city, and swim in the springs (which was the closest thing to a shower we had experienced that week). We had all been to Austin before but never together which made it super fun. We then started our drive to Colorado and made Amarillo, Texas our midway stopping point, where we slept in the full pipe of a skatepark and woke up and rode it the next day....
