(UPDATED WITH LOCATION)California/Santa Monica meet up

Hello guys I recently finished my first build. I’ve been cruising around, Venice Beach, CA, Santa Monica, etc. All I see are booster riders. Looking for some people from ESK8 builders that are around LA who are down to meetup and cruise on the weekends! Let me know where are you guys located in California, I am pretty sure we can form a little group or something!

Hey dude! I’m in Mar Vista by the santa monica airport, I’m a vesc repair away from having my board completed. I’ll give you a holler as soon as I get it running!

I totally know there’s two more DIY guys in Venice that I’ve seen on Rose near 5th/6th street, but I don’t know if they’re on this forum.

I’m in San Diego, 138mi to Venice Beach. :slight_frown:

how is it skating in San Diego? I’ll probably be there for the first time on September 12th for half the day!

There are many good places to skate here. Mission Beach board walk (very busy this time of year but really fun with wide cement paths right on the beach. sandy in spots though) East Mission Bay Park(park setting and less crowded) Father Juniper Sera Trail (smooth asphalt road that winds through mountains with lots of uphill/dwnhill. Silver Strand bike way (runs from Coronado to Imperial Beach and is about 11miles long all flat and mostly straight) Lake Murray is out( I got chased out of there cuz they don’t allow any motorized vehicles)

These are not all, just the ones Iv’e done.

Looks like we blew a primary trace with the reverse polarity event.

Luckily it only burned this section. Usually the sections between the fets will vaporize too!

I tinned what was left of the trace and soldered a section of nickel strip in place for the repair.

The miracle was that nothing else was fried!!?? Your VESC is good to go!

Holy cow that was so fast! I’m so relieved to see that the damage was so small, I think its definitely a testimony to the quality of your parts. This has been, without a doubt, the best customer service I’ve ever received on anything in my entire life. Thank you so much @chaka, I really appreciate the thorough explanation as well! I can’t wait to get this thing on the road!
