all my friends i ride with keep pushing me to move somewhere where i can ride year round and with better riders. they all say i have what it takes to get to the top i just need the right setting. this past summer i took first in outlaw. i know its nothing compared to some riders but i really want to take my riding to the next level. is there anyone out there that has something to offer me? how did you make it big? what did you do to get there? is there camps or people i can find to ride with?

Central Florida for many people that have connections to the sport down there.

There is a guy in Winter Haven origanally from MI and helps out with Briscoe's camp.... maybe you could get in with them....super cool guys and Dave is an awesome coach...

If you can swing it I would train with him for like 2 months and you'll be golden.

For X,000 dollars you get housing, food, drink, 2/3 pulls a day for a month....its pricey but he works wonders

if you're winning all the outlaw tournaments in your area/region, i'm sure your hyperlite rep. and all the local shops know who you are. that's where i would start....good luck.

I did a similar thing as Nick, I spent a while down in Orlando with Shapiro at Ride The Spot. It's not really your typical camp, you ride specifically with Darin and they don't allow a ton of students so you get a lot of one on one time. It is by far the best move I have made with my riding. I'm pretty sure you can hit him up at, and I definitely suggest it man.
