I planned to cross the US coast to coast a long time ago but it eventually happened this year with Loic Benoit, Bastien Duverdier, Sam Partaix, Victor Pellegrin and others..
I joined the crew in Washington, and I missed New York and Philly too bad I really wanted to skate Philly.
After losing one day with missing flight and waiting for lost luggagues, I finnaly hit the road with the crew. That was pretty intense and quick. We didn't stay much longer than one day in each city. We went to Skatopia, St Louis, Louisville, Kansas city, we saw the Grand Canyon, Moab, Las Vegas and the ditches and finally San Francisco.
I am now staying a bit in SF, which is so far the best city I stayed during the whole trip.
I love the downhills, and the atmosphere here, everybody skates, it's crazy!
