    SoCal has a decent scene in many places, a few years ago it was huge, but you can still find homies to jam with if you know where to look.

    @Con man Loveland, used to drive through there on the way to Estes Park in the Summers back in the day. Also used to go to a great kite place in Boulder called Into the Wind.

    Might have posted in here previously but whatever I'm trying to get more activity on DS.

    I'm from west austria (Tyrol) and the scene here is pretty slim. Theres a few players in my "town" but only like 3 including me play regularly (mostly everyone alone because of weather/work etc)
    But @stixrowgang (on insta) are a few guys from Innsbruck & Vorarlberg who organized the first ever dama Event i went to and it was a blast. Players from upper austria, Vorarlberg etc came and it was such a great day.
    They are also working on a new jam in Bregenz(?) soonish which I hope to attend.
    Aditionally I might get in contact with them to have a jam in my hometown in summer.


    My advice for people who try to "build" the scene is to find a place where you can jam together (in summer its the local Skatepark or somewhere at a river) and try to get routine seshs in.
    Even if its just two people its better than playing alone and hypes me to learn more each time!
