Less blown out than Barcelona but also with far less spots.  There's still some fun stuff.

If you're speaking to me, yeah, definately. You live within driving distance?

You can even skate the banks on the opposite side of that hip.  It's a bit steeper and the crack at the bottom gets harsh in a few sections but it's still a fun spot.  On the weekends the pedistrian traffic is pretty mellow as well.

Miami. Great city with a free train system to go around the whole city and stop every few hundred feet. Great spots. Great weather. Some spots you may know of from videos are ADP, the white 7 hubba Wenning did SS Back Smith. NMB, The blue 7 hubba Ryan Gallant does Flip FS Noseslide. Triangle, don't think it needs any explanation, but the triangle Johan did FS Nosegrind. Wade D did SS Ollie in.. right in the center of Downtown. Downtown has TONS of spots within a close skating distance that can be a bust but you can always go to the next one and when you get kicked out of there go back the one before that for however long. Over the bridge, a 5 minutes bus ride will take you to Janoski benches, the wooden benches on the pier Janoski has the long line at ending with the perfect SS Front Heel on flat. Rooftops, the roofs Ben Gore did Fullcab Flip on in Static 3. Can be a big bust if you get caught. Plus its a super sketchy spot and most people are pussy to go up. Its all about to fall down and you have to go up a little rusty ladder with a drop under it of about 60 feet into broken seats and glass. So many more spots I can't even begin to name. Plus theres so many more South Beach spots. MIA shop is in South Beach. "Foot Soldiers" is a shop in downtown that is like a Hip Hop/Graffiti/Skate shop. Overall, Miami is raw as fuckkkk.

Austin TX

Spots:

-there's really no one spot that everyone can meet up at or anything that amazing at all, but the city itself is very skate-condusive, with a downtown full of rolling hills and great bomb spots, with tons of little things along the way.  i'm told there are spots out in the suburbs but i never bother.

-the world famous Psycho Ditch, located on 45th between guadalupe and lamar (KOTR ed templeton frontside rock with a straitjacket on).  its located across from the state mental ward hence the name.  actually a very fun weekend spot, you can even BBQ there.

Shops:

-the newest and coolest shop is "No Comply", owned and operated by none other than jake nunn and elias bingham.  located in a rad part of south austin, it's a small shop but they stock good stuff.

-Find N Grind, pretty awesome little local-run shop.  they have a mini in the back, just ask and i'm sure they'll let you skate it.  the owners of this shop also run a little board company, Brown Boards.


Locals:  everyone is cool, the city itself is laid back and finding fellow schralpers is pretty easy.  you're best bet is to hit up one of the shops and you'll probably find a good crew to show you around or at least point you in the right direction.


Eats:
kinda too many to name.  the whole city is riddled with cheap mexican joints, super authentic shit.  the best as far as price and quality is Tamale House, on airport blvd.  a full taco dinner with all the fixings is $3.25 out the door.  also check out Thundercloud Subs for the best sandwiches in town, or if you've got some money to spend you can check out the Whole Food World Headquarters and load up on some healthy shit.

Booze:  if you've ever been to austin you know finding a bar aint hard.  it all depends on what you want in a bar. 

-for a dark sleazy spot to get completely hammered and probably bump into other skaters, Jackalope is the best bet.  its big and has a nice outdoor portion with a firepit. 
-pretty much just go downtown and wander around until you find something that looks bearable.  if you're feeling trendy and wanna get laid hit up Beauty Bar on 7th for all the latest in hipster girls with tiny headbands, dudes on fixies, and DJs that get paid way too much.

<b>Baltimore</b>

Shops: skate shops here suck, and are super spread out.
          Skatology ( bel air) for the latest in duffel fan-fare, all over print hoodies, ltd nikes, etc.
          3 ride for snowboards and maybe some shoes and girls
          i've heard rumors that charm city exists, i haven't been though.

Spots: Ridge Lumber: vacant lot with dude made ledges quarters super steep bank to curb, drops, jersey walls. pretty fun, mellow, always people there. little kid factor: 6/10
Downtown: legg mason, inner harbor, federal hill, etc. all smooth shit, real fun. instant bust at most places though. they will kick you out without question, but cruise the neighborhoods for sweet cellar doors and janky shit.
Dundalk Pavillion: longgg 3 and 2 stairs, some rough ledges, a bank.
Towson: mini city, super fun for a day, banks, ledges, street gaps, wall rides, garages with curbs and mannys. fun shit.
Landsdowne: way old park, huuuge snake run, cement bowls, real fun, full pads. complete with metal street course haha and 4 foot mini that is ridiculous fun to hit up, kind of in a sketchy neighborhood though.
Old Hillen movie theatre: Two ads in thrasher taken here..loading docks into banks (tom guielfuss wallride ad) three monster steep banks next to pretty heavy traffic, red painted curbs. pretty fun. there's little shit all around...

there's also 3 or 4 other free metal parks. notice i said metal....

Food: chipotle downtown, panera/potbelly for sandwiches. zia's in towson for veg food. there's food everywhere, if it looks good it probably is. fells point/federal hill for real good eats.

Night life: downtown anywhere, for easy hipster girls hit up sonar on fridays..free drinks before 11. dollar beers in towson on wednesdays. shows at the ottobar, complete with smiths nights every two weeks.

overall its pretty tight. there's steps and rails everywhere, flat ground. ground is rough in some places, but you get over it.

also, york pa is just 30 minutes away and theyve got sick spots in their downtownish area, which is literally 4 blocks wide.

taunton MA

skaters edge indoor skatepark
snow man bowl, 4ft-9ft, crete coping

banks to wall, steep ass bank/pyramid, double set, 10 set, 6 set, 7 set, assorted rails and ledge. kink ledge, 4 ft mini, 6ft mini, hip, 4ft quarters, 9ft quarters. foam
pit
other stuff too that i can't think of right now

IP parking garage
 30 ft manual pad with 2 ft drop off
slab gap2ft ledge

Morton Ledge
one ledge, 2 blocks, knee high
one ledge, 1 block hip high

Boys club parking lot
jersey barriers
new pavement
grass gaps

random shit that you just know about from skating around the same shitty town for half of your life.

shops
Skaters Edge, not a great selection all the time, but Big Dave is a straight enough dude and his prices are the same as everyone else.
The Bike Barn is in Whitman and is a little better and sean rips

Food
Weir House of Pizza
mike the greek owns this place, dude has been ripping forever, lets kids build ghetto spots out back. REally good steak tips, pizza, fish and chips. weak beer selection. moderate price, good atmosphere with NO problems. good looking slutty waitresses too.

Big Wong
Best chinese food in Ttown, dude will deliver til 2am.

there are 5 dive bars within walking distance from these resturaunts and the skatepark

Salisbury NC (just left)

foundation spot off of I85
some built in cinder block ledges
kicker ramp
gap from top half to bottom half
BEAST gap from top halp to what appears to be a former loading zone, ends into a steep hill that leads to ichiban parking lot
low banks with gap in between

City park
thigh high ledges, tennis courts

Knox middle school,
moveable benches
3 stairs
bike racks down stairs

Elemetary school behind knox

5 set with ledge on side
6 set with ledge on side
folowing the 6 set is a bank/manny pad that leads to the bball court
6 set in the back, the rail is now gone
double 8 set to bball court

Rowan Medical Gap
parking lot gap with bushes

fisher st. ledges
4 squares of granite ledges, each maybe 25 feet long, 10 inches high, going in every direction

Half circle ledges
little higher than knees, waxed like butter

Rent A Center ledge
3 brick ledges that get progressively lower on the descent of the hill

Waterworks Gap
brick run up, bushes, shin high wall to 2 foot drop, sidewalk to street

Courthouse 10
beast of a ten, 2 snapped ankles in 6 months. i'm all set

Freedman's Cemetary banks/wall
behind the justice center is a cemetary with banks that start off low and hit a peak in the middle. ridiculously steep at the highest point. There is a stair set in the middle, also at the beginning there is a stump that you can carve around if you're able to do a nose bonk on the wall. The wall is wicked burly, made out of cobblestone, nothing less than 60mm is going to make it off without an ensuing slam.

Main street ground rail
behind Spinzanellis coffee shop there is a white hip high ground rail that is built into a brick foundation. it's good for regular skaters to slide and gooft skaters can grind it. It's got a nice slanted run up.

There are more spots that are so random i wont dig em up.

Shops
There is a skateshop owned by a guy with a mullet who called me "sir" the first time i walked through the door, nuff said.

rainy day used books
there are no skateboards for sale in this store, just used books and records. Chris Johnson is a great guy. If you're in town, it's off on Innes street. Walk in and ask for transients choice, you'll get a free e cup of coffee and a place to chill. dude plays punk rock and phil ochs all day, best place in town.

Food

Las Palmas closed. RIP, that was a great place to get drunk everynight and hear someone play music

Salty Caper
has wicked good beer selection, pizza cooked in an oven fueled by wood. No bud products, miller, coors, just dank high gravity beer. Pricey, but well worth it. Dammit Dave might be a dick head at first, but his place has the best grub in town, hands down.

La Cieba
Honduran Bakery, great tacos, burritos, and pupusa. 3 pupusa (tortilla with stuff inside, circular shape) will cost 4 dollars, meat, cheese, veggies, anything you want. they've got good donut type pastries too, good cheap bread as well.

soup kitchen
not a bad place either, free grub for all the cats who can't find a job.

very little spots in dc? you serious man?  The park police are a bummer but just hit up the spots after 6 and you'll be fine.  And if they're crackin down just chill at the bridge spot at H St. and 2nd, but if you fall there you'll get a staph infection
That punk ass ginger is always rubbing one out somewhere on the perimiter of my property. Luckily got that net replaced before the kickflip into the mega QP. Nigga cant have no other man's substance touch his knee pad.

Utrecht, the Netherlands

spots:
De uithof University area lots of different spots. the orange pool (suski bs noseblunt) is skateable 24/7 and you cannot be kicked out. won't happen anyways. The marble and wooden ledges are busts on weekdays.




Blauwe hipje lately has been bit of a 'bust', but is skateable for atleast half an hour.


Domplein near the picturesque Domtower is a little pavement slap with a 3 stair and this.
great to just mess about.



we have plenty of other spots, but they are small and only fun for 15 - 30 minutes.

food:
Utrecht is not really a city full of deli's, just hit up a supermarket (they are everywhere) and get yourself a baguette, brie and a sixpack.

Booze:
either supermarkets or Berts Bierhuis (translated Bert's house of beers) a small store which only sells beer.

Clubs and bars are to be found in all sorts and sizes, but the only ones we go to are
tivoli (good for students on thursdays)
Kafe Belgie (bar with 180 sorts of beer)

edit: i forgot the coffeeshops

we had the longest running coffeeshop in the Netherlands, but it was ordered to close as visitors caused a whole range of problems, but after that the 'Koffiedik' is the best coffeeshop in this city.
