Traveling and BMX go hand in hand.You can pretty much go anywhere in the world with your bike and make some new friends. Ive been doing it almost my whole life and it never gets old. Grab your bike and go explore. There may be a language barrier but everyone understands a high-five!!
We just got back from Puerto Rico and the trip was amazing, we made new friends and visited old friends.We were able to travel a good portion of the island and had the opportunity to meet and ride with a solid crew of locals. They took us in with open arms and showed us some good times and true hospitality.
Thanks to all the San Sebastian locals especially Vlad, Pichy and Tongo for the peanuts!!
And of course thanks to Carlos for keeping us laughing and Evan for kicking ass in general!!
If you're looking to go to PR don't hesitate, its worth the trip.
Here are some photos from the trip. Since its so cold out I hope these can warm you up just a little.
Nick met up with us the first day of the trip. Heres a shot from our first night in San Juan. Dudes always bringing the good vibes and PR wouldn't have been the same if he wasn't there.
Vert Wall shimmy at Tres Palmas.
I had a loose travel plan and wanted to view some sites. Mission accomplished!! We hit everything on the list in a matter of days. This is the Window Cave in Arecibo. Crazy view but scary as "F". 1000FT drop.
This is a portion of the San Sebastian Crew. We were exhausted from driving and riding all day but when we got to SS Skatepark these dudes were so welcoming and genuine that we got right back on it and cruised with them. Thanks guys for keeping my old bones moving.
Pichy and Vlad took us to their local jungle paradise swim hole. A far cry from our Carrs Pond or Cumby Res. Pickett about to do his signature "back flop rope swing plunge".
Mrs. Jemeniz (Pichy's mom) went all out and made us a Pasteles lunch. It was the best meal we had on the island and we will all recall it for months to come. We couldn't say "Thank You" enough..
We made it to Quebradilla Park with an hour of sunlight left. We made the most of it but you really need a couple of days there to enjoy the park for what it is. Next time Quebradilla!!
Hopped on the ferry to Culebra Island to sleep on Flaminco Beach for the night. It was well worth the trip, plus we got to witness an epic moon rise..
Nick absolutely killed it the whole trip. Classic tabe on the last night in San Juan at the D.I.Y spot.
Ride or Die Inside!!
Its back to business here as usual. We will be hosting a Feburary park rental at Rad Skatepark. I will have the date up soon. In the meantime stop in and say hello!!
