Most people look at the clouds or rain and they think "oh it's a perfect day for sleeping or watching a movie in bed, drinking hot coffee." I am not sure if we are the crazy people, the riders, or the people who don't ride who are not enjoying the things that nature or a city has to offer. They say “it´s to expensive for me" but a bmx or a board are cheaper than their iphone. You don´t need a boat to ride a wake, make a winch!

I see in the near future, here in the 3rd world countries, more people doing different things other than football, like going out exploring our world.

Last winter, some local rippers were encouraged to endure the cold and ride and enjoy a little bit of snow and wet dirt in Las Vegas, Mendoza in Argentina.

This summer was hard, with temperatures of 40 °C it was almost too hot ride. But as the summer drew to an end the days got better for riding.
