2023 Orchid Ranch – Pics and Results

Orchid is more than a contest, it’s an experience that I’m stoked to have been a part of. First off, the camping location was off the chain. It’s on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean just north of Santa Barbara. There is a trail leading you down to the beach with a vista bench at the top and a picnic table almost on the beach. There’s an indoor skatepark with comfortable dining booths and a kitchen in there that are for the overnight campers and rental parties. The bowl was sick and the skaters used all of it. Even the paint job was way cool as I believe I heard that Jaymeer, the guy who paints Burnside, painted the bowl this year.

Some Highlights of the contest were a huge boneless transfer from the extension to the wave roll in or a few 360 hip transfers or even the transfers to the orchid disc to back in. This may be my favorite contest I went to this year. It was a non stop good time with rad people!
