Me and some friends are thinking about going to Atlanta at the end of the month and I was trying to see if anyone knows where some good spots are, O and cheap lodging.

Fourth ward and Brook Run are both very fun and free outdoor parks. Fourthward is more vert/tranny oriented while Brook Run has street and vert areas  ;D

D Park is the best place to skate in the entire city. If you're looking for "famous" spots, skate up and down Peachtree street. If you don't have a car, you're fucked.

Thanks guys, so peachtree is the place to go for street spots.
Is there a good core shop there that we could pop into and ask for a tour of spots?

I'm not from Atlanta, hell I've never even been there, but I would imagine that shop is Stratosphere. (http://www.stratosphereskateboards.com)

some of the marta stations downtown are fun. peachtree station and north avenue station. across from north avenue station is bell banks. you'll recognize it. but there's stuff all up and down peachtree for sure. stratosphere is near downtown, they might could point you towards some spots.

i just spot hop from place to place.  like dude said a few post up. get(have) a car. Id really recommend finding a guide. I was just thinking about this plaza over near the west end that was in the DGK video, that i know how get too but have no idea what street its on.

the people at ambush board co are cool, but about 20min outside the city.

Take some acid and go watch the laser light show at Stone Mountain park.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

going to Atlanta in December going to be staying near sandy springs-  is brook run the closest worry free outdoor place to skate? i would be interested in checking out the peach tree banks as well if anyone has a good address i can use to look it up on google maps that would be great.

Brook run is probably your best bet for the area you're in -- it's a great warm-up spot, as it's barely a mile or two away from the highway. If you're in Sandy Springs, you'll be super close to Ruin, the best shop in Atlanta, as well, so you should visit. I think there's something like 30 streets in Atlanta named 'peachtree', so I'm not sure what the peachtree banks are.

If you go to Brook Run I'll be the old guy that keeps falling down. I look kinda like my avatar. Hope to see you there. It's a fun park.

Nice I'll be the guy that's way too old to be as bad at skating as I actually am and and making it a point to tell people I'm not from the area

I'll be the guy who looks way older than he actually is. I may also not be able to make it out there. tort, PM me when you're around if you wanna try to meet up.

The Grind Skatepark in Douglasville is a fun skatepark.

If you can afford to drive a bit, Hazzard co is really rad! there is also a little park called insanity not too far away, the locals are kinda kooky but no helmets and $5 to skate all day is hard to beat

You fellas are as nice as all the people I met today. Georgia is cool as hell.


Also recommend anyone in the area go to ruin to at least buy something cheep to support these guys. I came in looking like a nerd and they treated me with nothing but respect and were totally fine just shooting the shit with me while I talked to someone that was not my girlfriends family. Copped a back 40 shirt a ruin shirt. Truely a Great shop.
