After having a blast at Blading Cup and skating and hanging with the boys at the Negrete Memorial Session myself Leon Basin, AJ Delong, Mike Torres and Robert Guerrero decided to take a 7 day road trip along the 101 to see the sights and get some skating in along the California Coast.

We somehow managed to squeeze 5 guys and 8 sets of Intuitions into Leon’s RAV4 with 3 Main goals: skate, eat a burrito a day and soak in every and any hotel hot tub we could find.
Stops included Torrance, Ventura, San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, Big Sur, Santa Cruz and two nights in San Fransisco with Dave Ghent aka Canadian Dave.

It was my first time in California and the trip did not disappoint. My only complaint would have to be daylight savings constantly cutting our days short, but luckily we always managed to find a lit skatepark to unwind at before our final tub of the night.
