I dont know if anyone of you will visit Taipei in the future.

But our version of EMB had gone, Chung Sheng Plaza got knobbed. Not really knobbed though, they put several green carpets on the staircases and other obstacles, it is still skateable, but not that fun as before.

Maybe you guys want to know.

Someone do Victoria so I can laugh at how bad it is.

ok here it is

victoria:

Shop:

 one six: by gordo sucks balls but they have a ramp you can skate if you pay and get you parents to sign your life away.

 360:  It is down town but a bunch of jocks work there and if you are going to buy shit there you might as well go to sports traders down the street

 hto: A surf/snowboard/swim shit store with some skate stuff gay staff exept for one dude. its on broad which is d-town

 coastline: same as hto but gayer people and more expensive shit down the street from hto next to a gay club.

 
 Spots:

 just go downtown, there is a 9 rail on a roof, a 6 stair you can do lines at and some curbs

 uvic has some spots but no one will want to go there and the ground is shit

 Transport:

 the public transport bus evey where unless you have a car

 food

second slice pizza is the only place that people go to other than mc-dicks


Skateparks:

gordo: fun if you like smoking weed and skateing a flat bar in the heat all day. every one there smokes but there is some other stuff to skate like some banks

vic west: a good park if you can handle people high on hard drugs. some rails, hips ledges and a bowl

Bakersfield is great. we have a shitty skatepark, lots of nice stairs and rails, ledges, and the worst pollution you could breathe. it's lovely.

Kvernaland, Norway

Shop: Well, we don't have any skateshops. But if we take the train/bus or drive to Sandnes or Stavanger, there's a coulpe of shops waiting for us (about 10 miles to the closest)

Spots: We use to have this little flatground with a ledge and these small flatbars and kickers, but it's been torn down, making place for new apartments. But we do have two ramps. A big one with a spine and extensions which suck because it's so worn down, but we have a new one that's cool, although you can't really grind too long on it, because it isn't wide enough. If you look really hard around here, you might find something remotely skateable, but really, it sucks.

Transportation: Buses and trains taking you to those good spots outside of here. Stavanger, Oslo, Bryne and so on.

Food: Uhm, we have like this little pizzashop I think, and two grocery stores.

Summary: So that's it. Sucky, as you can see. Anyways, if someones ever going to Norway, I would gladly try and help them out in any way, just give me a word.

I updated the Winston-Salem post with a few specific spots on page one. There's enough in there to get anyone visiting Winston started.
One of my favorite lines is the one of spiked meth drnewton does off of lou pearlmans viarga and toddler-blood induced erection that finally puts that bitch 6 feet deep.

"let's just go to South Street"

towards the end of my stay at my last apartment in philly, just 4 blocks from city hall, i would go there every single day at 5:30 and skate the recently unknobbed bench at the bottem for hours with a gallon of water. seriously for two months i don't think i went to a single other spot.

Springfield,MA

Spots

Herena park- located on main street in downtown. ledges, bonks, 7 stair rail/kink rail, double set if your gnarly. spot is bust free and the "hot spot" right now.

Courthouse- rail into steep bank, also ledges/manny pads. this spot just recently became a bust, you can try after 5 but dont get your hopes up.

Piss ledges/stinky- located behind union market in downtown. one long ledge that gets higher and higher, bum hangout, keep your eyes open, bust free.

Civic Center- 12 stair and 15 stair both with a rail. go there if you want to "throw down" and be a faggott. after 5 shouldn't be a bust.

random downtown spots- city is small, lurk around downtown and youll find some shit, keep your eyes pealed, gangsters lurk heavy.

Parks

Junction skate park-indoor park located in springfield. 892 carew street

Agawam skate park- outdoor park located in Agawam, a neighboring town of Springfield. my personal favorite park, go there and get stabbed.

Westside park- outdoor park located in West Springfield, mini ramp, good bench.

Shops

Theory-306 westfield street west springfield. pretty much the only shop around, no, we dont have ice creams sorry.

Beautiful Pasadena California, just a lil east of Los Angeles.

Spots: Not much honestly. For a town covered in concrete there sure isn't too much that is shred worthy. Some fun wallrides on Colorado blvd.

Shops: Also, not much. A Val Surf in Old Town that feels more like a mall store, but Weston Correa works there, and he's the homie.

Parks: Pieceashit ramptech park in the ghetto. Not even worth it if you live by it. However, nice and close to the Highland Park park and the Glendale Park.

Really, the best thing about the 'Dena is that is nice and easy to get anywhere else in the LA area.

There are quite a few bored cops around here though, watch your ass. 

Food on the other hand, we got. Pasadena is famous for its grub scene. Every spot in Old Town is worth hitting, check out Lucky Boy on Arroyo for the breakfast burritos

Salina, Kansas aka shit town

Shop:
Focus Skate Shop/Park. Located at 831 york street, constuction on the park is due to start on Febuary 8th and should be done by the end of March.

Spots:

Memorial Hall- Golden 8 stair with some decent handrails.

Libary- Across the street from memorial, huge plaza with ledges, stairs and manny pads

Oakdale- A drop/loading dock spot

Food:

Only places worth trying is Greeks Pizza and Martenellies lil Italy.

If you wanna meet up with some skaters just go to the skatepark located on the west end of town, its just a shit modular place but for some reason we go there.

I kid I grew up with in AZ married a girl from Salina a little over a year ago. Small world. We flew out there for the wedding and man did that place seem dreary... Seems like a good place to score meth.

Anyone from Baltimore or D.C.? I'm about to go visit my brother out there soon.

BERKELEY, CA

Parks:
Berkeley Skatepark on 5th and Harrison
"skate plaza" thing on Martin Luther King between Center and Allston

Spots:
UC Berkeley campus. Your allowed to skate on the campus for transportation, so just don't stay at one spot too long. Its the cops policy to give you a formal warning before giving you a ticket, so if you've never had your name written down you don't really need to worry about being fined. Its best to go when schools not in session, especially at night. Check the art musuem.

Shop: 510 at Bancroft and Telegraph.

Trogir, Croatia

Spots: few ledges near the big bridge, nice amount of stairs hidden around the main city.

Shop: none

Park: none

Skate scene: only me.

If you ever come here, go to the bus station take bus #&, this will lead you to Split, Croatia.

Spots: when you get off the station go down towards the sea, on your left you will see four sets of five stairs all with enough space inbetween them to set up. Also ledges there. Now keep going down the street more, and youll see the farmers market (outdoor) and to the right of it there will be a park with a fountain in it, there is a billion ledges all around it and this is where all the skaters meet up at.

Shops: Atlantis Skateshop  www.atlantisskate.hr   check for directions

Parks: none it got torn down

Skate Scene: lots of people all older, like 15 and 16 to like some hesh ass thirty year olds, rarely will you see little kids around, ive never see one.

Baltimore is a lot of fun to skate. I have only visited there twice, but both times there was tons of shit to skate. If you want I could hook you up with some people out there and you could probably meet up at a spot to poke around.

Also, is anyone from Redlands/ Inland Empire area or knows any parks or anything to skate during the day? I'm going out there to visit my lady and she's at work all day so I will be in search of skate.

Chicago:

Shop:

 Uprise: 1820 N. Milwaukee ave.
 http://www.upriseskateshop.com/

 the hub of skateboarding in chicago (the suburbs don't count, ha!)

 Spots:

 just go downtown, sundays are best, but generally after 7 is good and if you skate in the loop wait until the bike cops are off work at 11:00. Unlike say, LA (BOOOOOOOOO) you can actually skate spot to spot ( at least downtown) and or just take a train to some other neighborhood and explore.

 wicker park has some spots ( the neighborhood uprise is in), Clemente high school is skater central

 Transport:

 the public transport, though getting more and more expensive the CTA is where it's at, and if you get a day pass, a week pass, or a month pass, avaiable at any check cashing or whatever place, it's a bargain if you take the train/bus more than twice a day.

Food:

 i miss chicago food so bad

Pequad's pizza is a must, at Webster & Clybourn, the best Chicago Pizza, $5 lunch special is the best, a small ( not that small) pizza and a beer, so gooood.

Billygoats, it's downtown, it's cheap, it's on lower wacker drive (another good skate spot for the colder wetter days)

Pizza Metro, again, wicker park, another skater hub

Potbelly's, a chicago chain that makes good subs

... there is so much good food in this city

Skateparks:

Wilson: on the northside, fairly easy to get to on the train, good bowls, some street stuff, is lit up at night

31st: a great idea poorly executed but still very fun, this is on the southside, it is tough to get to by bus, it can be done, but driving recomended, not lit up at night

the new ledge park: it's in the south loop... i forget the address, but it's dope, lots of recycled plastic benches by this cool dude Dan Peterman.. it's a little south of the art institute (which used to be a great spot), the park is lit up at night.


 so that's that, go to Uprise, go to Pequads, skate the ledge park until 11:00, then go skate the loop and that's a good day

 CHI OR DIE!
Chicago is probably one of the sickest places ever I've ever visited. I am planning to go there again hopefully.

My brother was staying at my aunts in Baltimore but now he has his own place in DC so I'll be there most the time. I am still flying in to Baltimore though, so maybe I'll check it out briefly on my own before getting on a train. Thanks for the invitation though.
