With my California trip only half over, I was excited to be back in a familiar area with my riding buddies. I was staying put in the Santa Cruz/Aptos area for the rest of the trip. Brandon and I didn't take any time off and were right back to all the local jumps. Surprisingly, the weather had been cold while we were gone and the frosty evenings had our favourite step-up sand jump frozen solid. After working so hard at Woodward to get some new tricks and dial in our harder tricks, we weren't going to wait around for the weather to change allowing us to try our tricks safely. It took us three hours, a tiger torch and our Canadian de-frosting skills to soften up the landing. The result was very worth it, as we could try our newly learned tricks right away, in the safer environment of sand, than a hard dirt landing.
 
Brandon's trip was over on January 25 and he had to return north to Canada. My trip was not over yet, I had another week of riding ahead of me. I lost my ride around town when Brandon left with his truck, but the locals stepped in, driving me around to the jump spots. I spent alot of time riding with Ray George another Five Ten athlete on the mountain biking team. We rode nearly for the entire day, everyday. We hit all the local dirt jump spots including everyone's favorite, the Post Office, Erik's (Freedom 40 Trails), Scott's Valley step-up and Ray's personal trails he digs at Dolphin Trails. Our days would consist of a good morning session, a burrito lunch break, followed by more shredding.
 
Overall this was by far my best trip to California. The trip was full of legendary spots and sick riders. I can't wait for my next return to Cali. Huge thanks to Brandon Semenuk, Ryan Howard, Herb, Ray George and all the local builders creating these awesome dirt jump spots for us all to ride!
