Dakota Roche is probably most street riders favorite street rider and can be found wandering business complexes and school yards in Southern California on a never ending spot search to find the next unique setup without tire marks or wax on it. His passion for riding has taken him to countries near and far, down endless alleyways and places no normal people roam and all the way to X Games podiums.
