Vans Europe on Cali – Day 8 & 9

The final riding day before back to LA and packing the bags. Everyone wanted to have a cool last day in SD so Josh picked us up at out hotel in Chula Vista, which was pretty close to the Mexican border.

There were some cool banks with hips and some fences at some riverside ditch. Some kids even cemented a small sub box on top so it was def cool to nibble around on it. Around noon In´n Our Burger called for lunch and we learnd a lesson how to get free food – thumbs up!!!! Haha.

Having that hefty food in our stomach we drove to the infamous Home Ave. Ditch. That spot would have to be my fav spot of the week, classic Dirt Bros spot since 2 decades!! It had a lot to offer too, banks in different sizes, hips, wooden wallride, selfmade quarters, etc.

We stayd there for quite some time and everyone had a blast. Close to the end of the session Bruno decided to shut it down with a hauling ass gap 180 from the hip over a fence. Hoang told us not too many guys jumped it even straight and Bruno had it down 3rd try!! Trick of the trip? Go figure after you seen it in Chapter 2 on the 25th.

Day 9 was a bummer. We headed back towards Huntington Beach, stayd over night, packed the bags and had a final dinner and some drinks with our friend Choq. Jerry took us to the airport in the morning and all of us had a huge smile on our faces.

Thanks to all people making this trip happen – you know who you are!!
