Cool California & Carlsbad

I found this article in the NY Times. It is about skate boarding in California. It mentions Carlsbad, which is where Ryan lives. Thought I would put a few lines from the article and link it here if you wanted to check it out yourself.

Carlsbad is part of a region in northern San Diego County known as North County, which includes communities like Encinitas, Oceanside, Vista and Rancho Santa Fe. They make up an area that is to vertical skateboarding what Hollywood is to the movie and television industry, without the tour buses and the maps to the stars’ homes.

Seven of the 10 skaters who will compete Sunday in the men’s skateboard vert discipline at the X Games live in the North County region, as do at least four of the female skateboarders. The other three male skateboarders live within an hour’s drive.
