Beginning December 1, Premium's Garrett Reynolds will be leaving his hometown of Toms River, N.J. for the warmer weather of San Diego, Calif. "I'll be taking a break from N.J., enjoying weather, spots and girls that don't OD on their make up," said Reynolds today, while en route on a Cinema Wheel Co. trip through Arizona.
Joining Reynolds in San Diego for the winter will be Tony Ennis, X Games Silver Medalist Ty Morrow, and Premium team rider JJ Palmere. "East is definitely better, but the weather and abundance of spots is hard to beat," added Morrow.
The plan, according to Reynolds, is to film non-stop throughout the winter for the upcoming Deadline video, and Morrow's project The Trip.
In the past, the traditional BMX winter migration landed everyone and their three best friends in Austin, Texas, but that seems to be slowly turning towards Southern California. Earlier this fall, the Kink team decided to rent a house for the winter in Long Beach, followed by this more recent announcement from Reynolds and friends.
But not everyone is pleased with Garrett's new choice in location. Garrett's sponsor Staff BMX Mailorder jokingly remarked that San Diego will "turn him soft" and that he should "stay and keep reppin N.J."
In other groundbreaking news that I learned from Twitter today, Corey Martinez decided to shampoo and condition his beard. He was not available for comment.
