If they put a swooping road down a volcano…at dawn…with my tunes playing as the sun came up…..bad ass!
Zach Gomo from Erie, PA
My dream place to skate would have to be California. The parks are killer, the street spots are insane, and I’d love to meet up with the YouTube guy nkalexander. His filming is amazing! I’d love to go down with the skate team I film and take pictures for Free Skateboard Co. We could get some sick footage and shots! But best of all, Cali is so close to Colorado, I could go shred my dream slopes as well! Well, I really hope I win this giveaway. I’ve wanted a go pro for so long but can’t afford one. I’m trying to deal with the cheap camera I’m using now, but this would be awesome! Hopefully you guys like my story and I win this amazing package!

I wanna hoverboard on the moon. Just gapping those craters and getting sick amounts of air. Plus, falling wouldn’t hurt so I could go huge. I could tilt the plaque there and grind of it yelling “America! Heck Yeah!”
David Burkland from Texarkana, TX
Probably Canada, as a longboarder, the hills would be sick. Straight gnar! It would be great for video and promo for my skate team and we’d get more exposure.
Rodger Reed from Long Beach, CA
My dream place to skate is any graded, scenic road with views of the coastline.
Dave Miller from Knoxville, TN
Sao Paulo, Brazil. Got to go in 2000 and would love to go back. The Brazilian people are awesome!
Stephen Meyer from Las Cruces, NM
My Ideal place to skate, if I were ant sized, would be a hot wheels track. Bombing the hills, doing loops, and launching off into the little basketball hoop you have hanging above your trash can would be sick!
Kevin Lo from Los Angeles, CA
There is a place I know of way up in the beauteous hills of Malibu, California. This place I speak of is unlike any other of its kind. Its location is indescribably unique, containing among it a certain ora which leaves me uplifted and alive, as if I had gone through an enlightenment of some sort. It is a safe haven from all of the incomprehensible madness and chaos of the world which sits just along its baseline. For some, it is a canvas; a place to express and unleash unlimited artistic talent bottled up into three dollar aluminum cans of paint. For others, it is a concrete heaven. A heaven where you don’t have to be a saint to enter, all you need is a plank of finely crafted wood and a set of four wheels. For all, it is simply an escape from reality, a safe place to relieve the stress and enjoy the view. From what once was a multi-million dollar mansion sitting cliffside on Piuma Road, rose from its ashes a majestical skate park known to its inhibitors as Soltech.
As a photographer/videographer who loves to skate, BMX ride, travel, and enjoy a great view, I believe this picture below shows a moment in time to remember with my friends and how Soltech can be represented.
Brandon Bethea from San Diego, CA
My dream place to skate would be on one of the upcoming commercial flights to space! Imagine floating weightless like Christian Hosoi and pulling some galactic air before sticking the landing back on Earth! Space is the new frontier, and I could be the first to pull off a suborbital ollie!
