According to THPS Underground, Eric Sparrow is from Jersey, as is the main character that did a McTwist over a helicopter in flight. Also, Mike V is from New Jersey. And Muska visited once in his Muska mobile and gave a new board to the main character.

So, sounds pretty tight.
Iím not letting my YouTube algorithm anywhere near that video.

I'm from the PNW but I lived in Wayne and Jersey City for a year each. Once you get used to it, NJ's not a bad place at all. I miss the Italian American food out there. It was an easy commute to NYC, and the people are cool. But that's just suburban and urban north NJ. The rest of the state is pretty different from what I've heard.

Do it man. Do it sooner than later. Move and get a cheap spot and the city is yours. NYC just a stones throw away. City that never sleeps baby.

NJ has a legit claim at producing the greatest skaters ever.  Wair, Gall, Puleo, Groholski, Oyola, Cardonas, Story, OíConnor, Rizzo, Pine, Wenning, Vallely, MerlinoÖ the list goes on.

probably trolling, but I feel very honored to be included in that list. That being said, I think there was some statistic about Jersey having the most pros out of there from any state besides California.

Back to the original thread, that's cool you want to visit Jersey but if you're born and raised in California, be prepared. Especially during the winter time.

For the record, Iím a big fan, dude!  Iím also from NJ originally (got my first board from Unreal Skate Shop in Somerville) so I have insane respect for anyone who is able to make it from there into the skate industry.

That's rad dude, also thank you! I think I remember there being a park in Somerville, may or may not be there anymore.

I been thinking about leaving LA for Jersey .  my family has a tiny bungalow on the shore and the vibes are nice the beach is a 2 minute bike ride, thereís a small shitty skatepark thatís always empty and the train station is a block up if you ever wanna go to city and the local bar serves pizza till midnight and letís you buy six packs to go.

Just do NYC. Better skating and food. Youíll pay way more rent/mortgage but lower property taxes than NJ and bc of mass transit youíll avoid Jerseyís insane car taxes and tolls. The only con is the women in Jersey are WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY easier and alot cheaper to buy.

Im guessing manasquan, since it sounds like his is a one late bar sorta town and I think leggetts fits his description pretty well.

Both parks are empty though.

Iím from the Toms River area, and just moved to LA six months ago after living in Brooklyn for 3 years. I wish I moved out west sooner.

Skating in NJ can be summed up as crusty, hard to skate spots that are all far apart from each other, and skateparks. There are some hidden gems here though and definitely a decent skate scene, especially in North Jersey and cities like Trenton/Atlantic City further south
