This past weekend I randomly hit up my friend Paul Covey about heading out to the Area 43 backyard ramp Jam. I was well aware of this event a month or so leading up to the day but didn’t think much of because my work schedule normally requires me to work around the weekends but I was luck to get this Saturday off. Ride BMX magazine had put up $250 dollars cash prize for a best trick comp so a knew there would be a good group of rippers. With my only expectations being a good time and a photo for instagram me and Paul rolled out. We get to the jam and its a solid group of San Diego regulars and local legends, the vibes were super strong and everyone was having a good time. After riding for awhile, the shred meter was near capacity. Still with zero expectations I ride in the best trick comp, to my surprise I ended up winning. I did a few solid moves and tried a few crazy things but what won it for me was a Monkey Plant to fakie on this awkward bowl corner. Not bad for a guy that works full time, normally just rides his local park in the AM hours and trains Jiu-Jitsu in evenings..
