California Pool and Pipe Dreams

I made my dream to go to California and skate pools and ride pipes one year ago.

I want to say big thanks to Chad Ford, Pat Ngoho, Steve Alba, Mike Serna, Dan Sandoval, Steve Olson, Mike Smolik, Jeremiah, Valley Center crew, Krampus, Steve Bailey, and the surfboard shaper Skip Frye.

Miss you friends, forever grateful.
