Had a chance to meet Steve O'Neill recently and learned that A. he rips and B. he moved the bay area about 5 months ago. I took him to a spot where he said something that I thought was really classic. He said "its crazy I have seen more spots to skate in this square block than in the whole town I came from." Sometimes I take for granted the scene here and I have to say thanks to Steve for keeping me appreciating the bay area. If you have a chance to meet Steve say whats up and show him there are other reasons to like living in the bay area.
