Famous companies like Airbnb, Pixar, Facebook, and Netflix have their headquarters in the "Bay Area," with many more competitors setting up shop every day.

„Skateboarding was first invented in Los Angeles in 1958 by Bill Richards. The board, which was made from up-cycled roller-skates, was invented in order to help surfers practice during their down time and still "surf" when there were no waves.“
