NorCal trip day 1 – 7/24/09.
A few of us decided to head north last weekend to hit a few parks and ultimately end up at the Lake Cunningham park in San Jose. Chris, Art, Kevin and I loaded up and started the trek up the 101. Bill, Jeff and Dan weren’t far behind, coming up from SD.
We arrived in Santa Cruz mid-morning on Friday at the Wave Park. Tim and Stan came down from Sacramento and met up there too. Park was a lot smaller than I expected, but was sick and the locals were ripping. Chris and I shot a few photos.
Met up with Chuck from NHS at the park and he invited to the shop for a little tour.
This photo speaks for itself. So much history in this place.
Huge thanks to Chuck for taking the time out of his day to have us over. I’m sure I can speak for everyone when I say it really topped the day off. He hooked us up with some shirts and stickers and we were on our way.
Next stop was the Frederick Street Park, which was a fun snake run…in the 70’s. Now it’s gnarly cheese grater asphalt with a little bank at the end. We made the most of it and it ended up being kinda fun.

From there, we headed over to Derby Park. Just a snake run into a banked bowl, but a cool piece of skate history. We all had a blast and the locals murdered this place.

We all gathered up any energy we had left and stopped at the Scotts Valley Park. This was a super fun park. Had a pretty wide range of tranny stuff and a few ledges.
Ollie over the channel…it was probably an 8 foot gap.
We were all done after that session. So we headed to San Jose, got some food and called it a night. Pics from day 2 coming soon…
