I ride for Long Beach, it's a good deal. For the team, we are mainly looking for a rider who has basic inverts (backrolls, tannys, ts rolls, crows....ect), and at least a 3 (preferably more than 1). Basically we are looking for a rider with a solid base, so future learning will come easier.
The riding situation is great as well- we ride at the marine stadium (the x-games place) about 2 miles from school. and as Jeremy mentioned above a brand new calabria pro-v.
This is my second semester here, and its been a great experience so far.
Definitely look into it as much as possible.
