Aptos California is exploding!

Aptos is blowing up here on Pinkbike.com with four recent PODs and a VOD in recent weeks.

To the locals it's of no surprise with all the talent that lives around here and all the great riding that we have at our finger tips. Heck right now, most of Canada is down in California riding all the goods we get to enjoy every day!

Check out what's going on in Aptos:

But that is only skimming the surface of what this area has to offer. With an endless amount of talent and a lot of hard work, the Aptos area will continue to grow in popularity and riding areas. But your riding spot can also look like the infamous Post office jumps in Aptos, all you need are shovels, man power, motivation and an idea.

Check out a few images and videos you may not have seen:

But who we really have to thank for all the attention is the Riders. With out them, us as photographers and videographers would have no subject. Keep an eye out for the Aptos riders and artists, you have not seen the last of us.

 That third video shows the most balls. Why? Because they chose a song older than the combined ages of the riders. Congratulations.
