Haha Tracer tell me when you're in Delta for a North Delta sesh. Anti-Social and Blvd Skateshop are the cool guy shops, Authentic Board Supply in Surrey usually has good deals. Plaza is a fun park, but the ledges are like street, rough granite. Bonsor by Metrotown is fun, Chuck Bailey, Cloverdale and North Delta in Surrey/Delta are great too. There's lots of good spots you just have to hunt.

is the north delta park still looking good these days? i haven't been there for so long. fond memories of hauling ass from one side of the park to the other as a young buck to hit the bump to bar. wouldn't mind re-visiting that place.
Oh yeah, it's still glorious. The locs of my age have since passed on, but there's still the occasional ripper there. It's good because you basically get to shred the park while they stoner 16 year olds sit around in awe.
Love that park. The only down side is the rain has pitted the smooth cement and it now has the abrasive factor of pumice stone. Any skin that hits the ground will be swiftly removed. Since Chuck Bailey (right by the Gateway skytrain for out of towners) opened its been dead.
Which is weird because Delta is a 100x better for a street skater. I used to skate there every day, but the bus aint cheap to take every day. Cloverdale is way better then Chuck Bailey too. It's just full of fucking scooter kids.

ahh we have those in Portland too. Our parks have those rule signs so we point those out and the dads look sheepish afterwards and usually come back with the "they're only kids" retort and then walk away. The older ones usually get barked at when they're in the way.

yeah, you gotta be careful around the scooter kids out in surrey. you never know who'll go crying to their dad who turns out to be HA or some shit like that. i tend to hit those parks around 9am to avoid the crowds.

if you're hungry theres a burrito spot across the street called Budgie's Burritos
if vegitarian burritos could make you fat, I'd probably be a truckload by the time my visa runs out. this place was awesome.

been to the plaza twice, it's really nice to be able to skate outside in January. Last time I skated outside this early in year I was wearing thick wool underwear and only lasted an hour.

oh and I have an uncapped ledge right outside my apartment. I guess tracer was lying :(

When I decide to quit my current job I need to come to Vancouver with my skateboard on a skate mission. I need a week or so up there to skate all the parks and downtown spots. I also gotta try and hit the RDS shop just cause they're awesome. Got any nice manny pad or ledge spot recommendations?

the rds shop shut down around 2011. there are a few schools in north van with plenty of ledges to skate, ridgeway and queen mary, and the go to manny spot would be terry fox which is right in front of bc place. bc place is a few minutes skate from the plaza which has tons of pads and ledges to skate as well.

I meant their current place. I have talked to the designer there several times and I might be able to score a visit. Gotta hit him up about it though. All those spots sound sick! I can't wait to take a trip

Surrey, Langley and New West have great spots, they're just spaced out. DT can be such a struggle sometimes.

The first rail is not anywhere near east van. I went there once and its rough as shit. The ground is like pebbles that have been cemented over and the rail is talllll. I don't remember the directions exactly.

p.s. those screen grabs are from a video me and my friends made.

This is the biggest problem in Vancouver right now. People just hoard spots. Of course I understand people don't want to blow out the spots and get them capped, but that's just how you stunt the progression of the scene.

Been looking into applying to UBC for graduate school.  Does anyone go to or live near the school?

I go to UBC right now, I live on campus. There's a lot of spots but the skate scene is 100% dead, which just makes it not fun. Skating by yourself sucks.  I think i've skated twice at UBC and I've been living on campus since September.

I skate the park regularly and see people coming to skate on campus all the time....it is a bit of a destination spot though because most skaters live on the other side of town.....

20min bus ride to plaza....
