This.

I love it when they run lengthwise. Super smooth; sick sound.

This was part of the lure of wanting to go to EMB back in the day for me.  Little did I know it was hard as fuck to skate on those bricks.  The cracks in between them was huge in some areas and riding bearing covers back in the day didn't help.

Doing those Omar Salazar type tail scrapes over sewers going fast as fuck is probably one of the best feelings in the world.

Long ago, when I was about nine or ten, my mom was working at a University and one part of the campus had these breast shaped features that were half grass, half brick and surrounded by sidewalk. Sometimes our little crew would get to come with her and shred while she was working and that was the spot. I've been hooked on skating on bricks ever since. Sadly, although not surprisingly, that spot is long gone.

slippery-ass brick ledges are pretty ideal

Market St. in S.F., so fun to haul ass down the sidewalk then hit the skater strip/curb.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

I've always wanted to skate a brick ledge. I know there's ones out there you can grind and slide on. Only one spot I can think of though.

Real brick is really nice.  When it is well aged it's a little slick and I can slide my tricks a more.
Fake brick (concrete dyed to look like brick) is usually terrible.

I also really like the cracks in the sidewalk around my apartment.  I just do a nose bonk kinda thing over them.

Seattle Central Community College has the best bricks I've ever had the pleasure of skating.

sorry to de-rail the topic but those little octagonal cement things that are all over NYC's public parks are my favorite thing to ride on.

Some of the best pushing you'll ever do.  It just gets you stoked.

I would love to skate an all brick skate park/plaza/ or diy spot.  Is that NBD?
