It was 1 year ago today' I arrived in San Diego to take up residents. It has been an amazing year, and what a time to make the move. A rebirth in Parks and old school skating. I was on the right coast(jersey) in the 70's, and this time on the left coast. The skate scene in California is just hoppin. They skating is off the hook, not that it wasn't awesome in Ct, just not the same, fewer riders and places to ride there. And nothing is free (ok the crappy ones are). I have been to a few parks now and plan on some more. I just love seeing kids, adults skating, whether street,park or cruising a longboard. You just didn't see that much of it on the East Coast either Era..Everyday I see it here, in fact there is a guy who comes by with his dog in tow or visa versa everyday. Tanner always runs to the door at the sound of those clicking wheels....

So to guys I have meet and skated with I THANK YOU VERY MUCH...
To the New Friends I have made A BIG DITTO.
You all know who you are, the list is to long like this thread is getting.
To my Friends on the East Coast I miss you and Hope to see you soon.

Ok real quick now
Favorite park Glendale/Encinitas hard to choose E is closer so I go there more
Best Ride. A longboard session from Mission Beach to La Jolla and back on the board(concrete) walk. Right next to the beach with waves and surfers, it was so cool for someone in my circumstances.
Need to Accomplish Yet. A real California pool, Baldy, The Cove Park and two trips. One more to Glendale and A trip up North(ok Santa Barbra isn't north really but it is to me. and Meet Wes and Foz.
Most Surreal Day Skating OB with Shogo Kubo and Dave Hackett. Bigpappa was also there to skate SDO was there to watch and chat banged up he was. I had bruised ribs but I tried anyway. What made the day so surreal was that I brought my kids. I was only going to watch. But they all said the would help watch my kids so I could skate. SDO did the most of it. But to see Dave Hackett chase down Tanner while I tried to drop in was just so surreal. In fact I apologized for having the guys watch the kids. and quote Dave. Hey man don't ever apologize for your kids it was awesome to do it. And if you don't want Molly my wife would love to have her....too Funny....
Worst Crash 4 Bruised ribs at Coronado 3 months to heal..... knock wood....


Thanks All......

I was a kid the last time I was there but I've been wanting to see San Diego again - especially now. I grew up in Baltimore but my mom is from the Bay are - Freemont. With family all over Cali, I spent alot of time out there in the summers but I haven't been back in 14 years. I just recently found out that my family owns some property in the Salton Sea area so I might plan a road trip out west sometime soon. How's the waves compared to Manasquan inlet? just kidding, I know the answer

When I get there were going to have to have a BDS get together at the Pala pool! Little bro skates it all the time. I'll get it started once I get there. Its a permission pool and you can bring lights and generators and party all night long!
