Every winter I try to get some dudes together and head to a warmer climate. For the past 5 years Puerto Rico has been that place. Why? I guess because its become so familiar, I'd like to think I'll visit somewhere else next winter but who am I fooling, I love this place. Its easy to get to, its a beautiful island and the locals are super friendly. I want to thank everyone that came along for this trip and helped us along the the way.
Here's a collection of photos that were taken during this journey.
Before this trip most of these guys barely or didn't know one another. By the end of the trip they had all become lifelong friends. BMX will do that and so will 10 days in a van.
The first time I visited this jungle paradise in San Sebastian there were 5 of us. This time there were 50. I was stunned on how amazing it is on both visits.
Pickett is famous in Puerto Rico.
Paging Dr. Pinzon!! Luis brought another element to this trip, the professional party element!! Without the Bose Speaker to get the session rolling and his antics, this would have been a different trip. Thanks for coming Dr.!!
A visit to PR wouldn't be the same without hitting the famous La Perla Bowl. Tyler rode this thing as if it were a normal, full size bowl, it's not.
This is Ray Rankin. Remember him? He's the first one in the park, the water or at the cliff to jump off of it. But he's always the last one to wake up. Here he is getting folded and finding new lines at Quebradillas.
Puntes Las Marias! This is the rad little DIY spot in San Juan. And this is Pinzon right off the plane and onto Rays bike since the airline lost his for a day. We were lucky enough to have a BNB across the street from here for a night.
Like I said. Rankin is the first one to jump off some shit and point at the camera.
I think Tyler may have fallen in love with PR as well. He even had the chance to catch some waves. Surf and Turf brother!!
This is how our trip ended. The PR Black Chicken Tattoo from Andrea and Frida. Couldn't ask for a better trip or a better ending. Thanks to everyone for being rad.
You know who you are!! See you next time!!
