Legislative Plaza (War Memorial Plaza) in Nashville, TN











Everything here is either Marble (ground) or Granite (ledges).

There used to be the most perfect handrails down the stairs that were two square rails next to each other and were about 8 " above knee high at the top.

If you ever come and skate here look under the building and see which state officer is working, if it is black officer "DO NOT SKATE IT", he is the only officer who cares (and happens to be black), other than him no one really gives a shit.  You can only skate at night and on the weekends and holidays.

There is also another amazing marble spot at the bottom of the hill from the State Capital it is call Bicentennial Mall (a state park), and is the biggest bust ever, do not even try b/c it isn't worth it.  Other than there the cops don't seem to care about people skating in Nashville, TN.

Enjoy

I really haven't been to too many places in my skateboarding,so all my favorite spots are my hometown spots, first up is The Everson Museum.
Basically, its like our Love Park, when we'd get kicked out of a spot the cops would tell us to goto the Eve. They have everything, high ledge, low ledge, low to high, the 2 block gap, the pink ledge gap, a few other gaps, curbs, manual pads, super smooth ground, and when the fountain is drained in the fall you have a whole new area to skate, not to mention the sculptures work as great skateable objects. The Everson used to let us skate there no problem because they considered skateboarding an art form, but recently they put up no skating signs and put skate stoppers on the ledges but there easy to pop off. I spent most of my youth skating here.

We also have a few main spots like the Herald Journal rails, the Mony 7 stairs, the Fleet Bank ledges, Inner Harbor(make sure you have a board goalie because if you fuck up and your deck goes in the water, its gone forever), Marshall Street, The SU campus has a bunch of stuff from giant hills to bomb to rails of all sizes to a giant marble plaza but you gotta be quick there, security doesn't play. Its also nice to skate up there due to all the hot ass college girls. We also have a secret school spot only a few know about tucked away in the extreme ghetto, nothing but ledges of all sizes, a nice grass gap, and a 5 stair, plus this crazy ass manual pad. We have some ill spots in the 3 but the Everson will always be the greatest to me, like I said, its like our Love Park or EMB.

UCI. All the famous spots have been knobbed but they're nothing I would be able to skate anyways. On the plus side, they're still building which means new spots.

There ain't no shit on T.V. tonight

Hahaha, I've dealt with that very officer. Went on a trip with a friend almost two years ago to Nashville and ended up there the last night. Place is too perfect.The guy came charging full sprint shouting at the top of his lungs.

That was the only shitty experience the whole trip though. Everyone in Nashville is so down to earth. Met a really cool skate-dad at the Franklin plaza at 6 in the morning who treated us to burgers and beer.Also while skating a randomspot, some guy approached us and ended up hooking us up with free hockey tickets instead of giving us the boot like we expected.

where in croatia is that? where are you from?

nice clip and even a clip from slovenia... (last 10 stair)


I'm from Norway. Was visiting Croatia once and met some local skaters. They were really nice and took me too some spots. This spot was in a city called Split. It was by this big statue of a guy with a golden toe, everybody who walks by rubs the golden toe of the statue.

Ha, we met there, I remember you guys. Never though that I will meet slap pal in the flesh, world is really a small place, especially for skateboarders :).

Pretty much the entire city of Barcelona, but now that I'm living here I got say that all the PARC DEL FORUM area is so fucking amazing.

This photos only show half of the spots and potencial the whole area has.











Also you'll have this:



this



and this (among dozens of spots)



a couple of pushes away

Fondo in his early years was also an unbelievable spot, I couldn't believe how fun it was the first time I skated there.

I just remembered about another favorite spot, this perfect sidewalk bump that was right down the street from my house. It was so fucking perfect, and it was on a hill too so you could hit it with some decent speed. I went cruising through my neighborhood right before I moved to Atlanta and I found out that they flattened it, a part of me from middle school died.

Where those two octagon stair things are? Every time I've been to SF there's always been crews skating the flat between those and between hordes of people).

They have a flea market thingy right there, too if it's what I'm thinking of.

My favorite spot is this grimey shitty ground DIY spot.  Ground sucks so much but I love it, skate it everyday.

skydome bank to curb, toronto, ON (they put grass in front of it now)

I've always wanted to skate this spot.  When I was in Toronto last month we went straight to this spot first day there.  And that's when we discovered the new grass.  Such a bummer.
