A word that has become popular that originated in the NorCal area.

Hella means "very" as in "It's hella hot in here!"

The word has spread, which is ironic because it sounds incredibly hickish (and likely has hick roots, with all of the Okies that moved to NorCal during and after the Depression).

Hella is not a word that people from outside of the Bay Area should be using, unless they actually want to sound like hicks.
Blonde girl: "I'm hella horny. Maybe I should say yes to the first guy that approaches me."

Brunnette: Oh god. You sound hella desperate.

While used in most areas of nor cal, people from Santa Cruz look down on it, considering it valley. This is most likely due to all the tourists from San Jose they get. If a local uses it they will be at least temprarily shunned and often yelled at by even their closes friends.
WARNING: Don't say hella or hecka in Santa Cruz
That's hella tight!
Omg you did not just say that, don't be such a kook.
