The lot the jumps are built on has a slight slope to it and there is only one tree. The lot is leased to the town and the jumps are public and legal. The jumps are called Post Office because the Post Office is directly across the street from the lot and at the time that name made sense to the kids that began riding and building there.
Those kids have grown up and are now known as the Aptos Crew led by Cam McCaul and Greg Watts.
