It looks like it starts as a curb but goes to ledge.

this is my curb right here
real nice double sided you can gap over the grass and hit it any direction

I'm tight with the landlord at the apartment it's in front of -- I keep it painted and laquered and he never bothers me skating it. First time we crossed there he gave me a hard time and tried to kick me out I offered to paint it for him and he laughed me off but next day I was out there with my bucket and since then we've had a nice mutual respect.

My favorite thing to skate when I visit home is the curbs outside of the town mall. As far as I know my friends and I are the only people that skate them, they are round and donít really lock into anything but they are painted and we dug out the dirt on the planter enough to boardslide, and they have some fun corners and stuff. Ground is perfect too. When Iím home next Iíll try and take a pic of them.

Iíve always wanted to go to that famous curb spot that pros go to in LA under a bridge... did I hear at some point that itís at a Home Depot?

Chico! Such a trip opening this thread and seeing this, i remember when the curbs werent painted. The two little kickers, the flat gap over the island, the super smooth flat area up top, the bank by the street, and the health center are all within like 100 yards and alot of fun. That little metal box at the top of the pic is nose slidable. I learned ALOT of my shit in this tiny little area a long time ago so sorry for the nostalgia post slappers. I promise thereís waaaaaaaaaaay better curbs/spots in Chico if you actually look and push around town, but nobody has the balls or motivation to leave the fucking toxic cool guy skatepark. Genuinely makes me sad because for how small and skate stopped it is, theres some great shit to skate around town. More for me i guess :)

That's fucking rad to hear man. This little parking lot/curb is where I skate the most in Chico and it's true there are a lot of hidden gems around here if you go hunting. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who hates the skate park and all the locals there. Good shit.

Down the street from my apartment. They don't care if we skate as long as the bank's closed. And the ground is all blacktop so it's basically the perfect spot. Sorry for the shitty pic, it's the best I could get from street view since I'm not home atm.

Here's my curb/manny pad near work that took me a while to get broken in, but now it grinds pretty good.

It's not lit at night so now it's for lunchtime sessions only.

I think people are sick of seeing mine here, but I poured a new one the other day using the same form with only one bag (instead of filling it with 80 lb bag and a half). It looks to be 4 - 4 1/2" high compared to 6" with it completely filled. I'll measure when it's time to remove it.

Lesson is make your curb forms for the biggest curb you want and adjust volume of cement instead of making different sized forms for each height.

I popped it out of the form this morning and it measures nearly 4 3/4". It looks pretty tasty, but I've got to wait 3 more weeks for it to finish curing. Also, for research purposes, I used the regular sakrete high pressure cement not the 5000 plus psi version to see if it is strong enough if cured properly.

Now to make two more of these.

Definitely no curb porn here, but it turns out this will be my lockdown curb.
At least, the metal edge slides/grinds smoothly and the ground around is quite good.

Took a while to finally find a spot. Everywhere good around me was either surrounded by cameras or a bust. I'd been skating a curb that a slap member from my city had set up, but I'd drive a long ass distance to skate it, only to find it parked in front of.

Been working on this, rub brick and a coat of paint and it's looking good.

Very good man, run up can be a bit wild cause you've gotta carve around a corner coming into it. Went back tonight and gave her another coat of laquer. Roasted a whole can on it  Seems perfect now. I'll upload a few clips when I can.

I found these loose parking blocks from various areas around town and set them up on this mini bank. Theyre both really small blox. The more pale yellow one is way smoother and the bright one kinda sucks so usually ill just do some quick slaps on the pale one. Its a nice challenge cuz you gotta do this tight quick carve into it from the sidewalk.

Would it be ridiculous to request an addendum to this threads title, based on one of the more pervy sounding thread titles on SLAP?
I am of course referring to the 9Ē(+) board thread from the Shoes & Gear board.
Can I formally petition to have the line ďI wanna hear waxed guys talk about their waxed curbsĒ added to the title to enhance cohesiveness sitewide, as well as add to the over all silliness of SLAP in general?
Thank you for your time.
Also, how sad/pathetic is it that curbs are practically all my nearly 5 decade young frame can handle anymore?

LA heads know this spot. It's definitely blown up in the last 2 years. This one beats the under the bridge Home Depot slappy spot (in my opinion), since that ground isn't forgiving and has not as good lighting in the evening.
Not my local but I make the 20 minute drive since I can usually get a solid 1 hour + session with minimal people unless it's the weekend. Sometimes it's like a skatepark on weekend evenings :O Skated it earlier tonight actually  :D I hit it 2-4 times a week if I can.
There's also two sets of 2 double sided curbs that are fun to grind/slide on. Lots of options here if your legs are willing!

Learned a new one at the curbs today. Finally getting the hang of slappies enough to try different variations of a slappy. Not the cleanest, but it was fun to do!

Do slappys annihilate pivot cups? How do you know if your pivot cup is wrecked? I have very little knowledge on this topic and would love to learn more in general.

living in a country with almost no grindable curbs (hard to explain). i was really happy to figure this out. its a bus stop near my house. downside is that its on a semi bussy road, ribbed on top and higher that normal curbs. but they have a little transition at the bottom to make up for the hight.
besides bus stops i have not been able to find any grindable curbs in my hometown. theres a fiew good ones in a nearby city but i dont have the time and money to visit there too often.

learning slappys on here made other curbs quite easy.

You're Dutch? We have these as well and Ive always wondered how good they grind but I've yet to find one that's abandoned enough to properly skate it. If you are indeed Dutch, I could recommend looking around in parking lots. My daily curb spot isn't the smoothest but there's nothing a rub brick and a shit ton of wax can't fix.

yes, Dutch. i didn't expect them to grind so never even tried at first. but it works fine. indeed the issue is finding one were you can skate in peace as busses only take the main roads. here its not bussy in the evenings and this bus stop is actually abandoned so no one can complain about a little wax on there. also talked to the people living next to it and they dont mind me. even got the "i used to skate too" from the guy that lives there.

i live in a small town and really all our curbs are the old ones that look like gravel. i wish there was a nice parking lot with the newer smooth curb blocks ive seen in some of the newer neighborhoods in other towns. there isnt even any parking lot with smooth ground here now that i think of it.
there are some of those really slanted smooth curbs along some 60/80km roads outside of town too. but i dont like those for slappys. theyre too slanted.

was the curb you rubbricked one of the nasty gravel looking ones? i've wondered if its possible to fix those.

my favorites are those in some old city centers, you have the really old hardstone/natural stone curbs. those are like butter. i know a fiew of those i can skate in a nearby city. i also saw those all over Brussels a while back so they're lucky i guess..

@Plan9Customs
thanks. i think it makes a higher sound than usual cause of the ribbles on top. not too sure too.

This is the curb I've been waxing for a year now, they're smoother than the gravely ones you're talking about. I know the slanted ones, but they're only nice for boardslides tbh. Might be worth it to create something, but it's probably gonna cost a lot of rub bricks to make it skateable. At that point you're probably better of making your own curb out of concrete or the wooden ones with a rail on top.

yeah i've been thinking of making a parking block. theres this emply patch of asphalt in the park behind my house that used to be a football cage.  its pretty rough but it wont bother anyone there. and might be able to make more if i got the mold right and drop one at the skatepark.
i know someone that made 2 curbs a while ago, those work great. told him about the bus stops and he found a really nice abandoned one in the city he's from. it's one of those sectioned off ones near a station so there's no cars driving there at all.

Might just do the same thing, while I appreciate the spot I have now, a double sided curb that slides well is nowhere to be found in my area. Let me know if you succeed if you decide to DIY something, very curious about the process.

All the same spot. Sucks the double sided isn't very good (yet) and that the sidewalks are fucking ROUGH as fuck, 97a spits makes them almost skateable so no manuals :\ only smooth part is where the handicapped ramps are (yellow bumps as well).

It's a filthy spot from the high turn over of cars, shows get dirty AF.

For me, perfect height is just slightly above the level of my feet when I'm standing on the board. Basically, not so short that it's free, but not so tall that it's hard.

Regarding curb height in the US vs Europe, I'd say curbs in the EU are, maybe, slightly lower than the us. It's hard to say exactly since curb height varies so much everywhere. I will say that, when I was in Jersey, I met a few curbs that blurred the line between curb and ledge, but I haven't found that here.
Title: Re: Show Me Your Curbs
Post by: disclosed on August 19, 2021, 02:01:22 PM
oh that pretty hard since i never measured a curb. tho i believe the avarage Dutch curb is lower than what i seen from the US. but the almost no curbs grind here anyway. and is really just depends on the street. theyre usually rectangle blocks and it just depends how far they dug them in.
the one is skate is about 8'' i guess, but that one is about twice as tall as all the ungrindable curbs around where i live here

i'd say straight curbs maybe 5" is the best for me, but sloped crubs can easily be higher.

I love that DMVs are natural curb locations. Which DMV is this?

Santa Monica, CA (10 min skate from my place)

It wasn't used much, then Stoner closed (Covid) and it became hot (hence the perfect curb wear). It's usage has tapered off some tho.

In Switzerland we donĎt have grindable curbs (I tried it, believe me  - they slide but donít grind) and until lately, parking blocks were unheard of. Now some American style parking blocks show up but mostly unlacquered. I have one spot with painted parking blocks but can only use it on Sundays as it is in front of a post office and always busy when the post office is open.

ThatĎs why I come here for curb porn. Keep it coming lads.

@TastyBurrito

The old Activision office area on Ocean Park? DMV closes at 5pm, lot is usually empty at 5:30 (enough to skate; I tend to hit it around 5:45/6:00 you never know if you'll get a grumpier DMV employee than usual + plus cars driving around).

On weekends, especially early you get a few people teaching others how to drive (why they choose to do it here...DMV or not, I have no idea as they don't ever use the layout the way the actual DMV instructors do).

Hit me up via a DM if you want to skate!

 I forgot to take a photo, but someone has taken a grinder to a local curb and intentional or not made it grind like pool blocks. It takes a second to get used to but after that itís a blast.

If itís a deterrent to stop skating it, itís done the opposite

If you look way down almost to the sidewalk at that part of the curb beside the yellow pole you'll find this.

Also, and yes I know this is TECHNICALLY not a curb but I just got a new job and this is like half a block down the street from it.

Two options. Get into a normal slappy and lean back or treat or like a 5-0 on transition which is how I do them but arguably slightly cheating. Slightly loft front wheels up before they hit the curb then get super light as your back wheels hit so they pop up into the grind. Like an exaggerated version of going into 5-0 on sticky out coping. ( if that makes sense?!)

I treat them like a tranny 5-0 as well...I can't find another way to trick my body into doing it differently.  I mean, I tend to use wallride techniques on taller curbs.

Thatís always painful. Friend of mine rub bricked, painted, lacquered, and waxed 4 meters of curb only to have everything completely gone in a week. It was as if nothing had ever happened to the curb, no paint or anything left on.

I skate this curb pretty much every day on my lunch break. I see a bunch of sketchy stuff go down there all the time, but it is super close to work and the people who bricked and lacquered it did a great job.

It would be really hard for me to not make it look like a car had accidentally unearthed one of those poles and bent over the other one then got away without leaving their insurance information and when the Super comes by and ask what happen I'd say I don't know man people got problems.

But I understand that you don't want to blow the spot. It would be hard for me

I've always thought that the curbs that some of you guys have are so perfect, like small banks. Maybe it's a California thing, the ones that Collin Provost launches off look so fun to skate, specially for slappys

This is the mall parking lot right by my place. Usually it's an early morning/late night hit because the parking lot fills up fast and security patrols the lot. All the little islands are covered (the one pictured is by far my favorite, perfect for warm ups and learning tricks). The entire mall is surrounded by classic California Reds, no wax/no spray needed. I usually just do laps around the mall and try to slap every hundred feet or so.

This is my back up. The red paint is real dry and flaky, the street is super busy, it's uphill for backside grinds, there are a lot of big cracks in the street.... so naturally I spend 4-5 hours a week here.

I spent time waxing one section, but the rest is pretty seasoned just from grinds.

rub brick, dust, 2 coats of clear coat, then wax to desired feel, you wont need a lot but you might need some

Has anyone tried rub bricking on a rainy day? Seems like a good way to avoid inhaling concrete dust and give you something to do when you can't skate anyway.

I feel like that would reduce the friction between the concrete/asphalt and probably not work as well, I imagine itd be similar to when you rub brick after waxing without actually ruining the rub brick

Definitely don't skip the rub brick, I just set up a new curb and started with the spray enamel instead of rub bricking first. It slides super nice, but isn't grinding very well yet.

However, I've found that just skating it is the best maintenance, at a certain point you won't have to apply new wax very often if at all.
Title: Re: Show Me Your Curbs
Post by: jsettle on April 16, 2022, 07:27:52 PM
I just did 2 cans of clear enamel spray and alot of wax on this curb right down the road from my house and skated it for the first time today and definitely notice the difference between a rub bricked curb and non rub bricked like i did this one. It was super crusty at first and the more grinds i did and wax i added while skating it, it eventually started going pretty nicely and it wasn't the smoothest cement to begin with. Wish i would of done the rub brick, but the extra crust makes it that much more awesome while grinding through it. Got sketched out trying to rub brick it since its on the navy base but hyped i finally have one right by my house to skate whenever now. I think with enough clear enamel spray and wax you can get a curb going if you skate it alot, but the rub brick definitely makes it alot smoother of a grind. First 3 clips are on the new curb i fixed up and other random curbs/clips in the mix.

Iíve found the same thing, if you skip the brick but spray/wax and skate a curb enough, itíll grind nice eventually. The biggest difference rub bricking makes (I think) is for slides. I rub bricked a taller curb nearby and it slides better than some skate park ledges. Super fun for slappie to tailslide/noseslide combos

Not even sure what I have, the hardware store only had one when I bought it. Iíll check my kit and report back.

Edit: 20 grit. Thatís worked well for me so far. Iíve done a long length of curb with spray, and Iím going to do a ledge nearby as well.

Been meaning to show these off and a picture doesnít do them justice. I got rained out after 15 minutes tonight but hey there was a rainbow.

 I had no hand in getting these going and Iím forever grateful to the folks that did. I stumbled upon them going grocery shopping after moving to a different part of town, they are like 3 minutes from my house. I love this place.


These are in Virginia, correct? Norfolk/VA Beach area? My friend that runs the Curb Junkies instagram always skates here with alot dudes. There's a solid crew of old dudes who session there every weekenn im pretty sure. The corner always looks so perfect when they skate it.

@jsettle yeah that's right! I've met some of the guys since I started skating the spot but my schedule never matches up with their big sessions. All really nice guys, and again I'm so thankful for the spot. Just realized that video is terrible too, just went from my phone to YouTube. Oh well.

Damn that thing looks perfect. Iím finally getting my curb spot back into shape. Hit it with a little laquer and wax after work today. The nose slide shuv is from today. The second link is some old stuff I posted in the other curbs thread that got locked

Hereís mine. I have a question for you all. As this thing has grinded away, a lot of rocks are emerging from the grinded edge. in october I rubbricked it and clearcoated it, but itís still really rough and not grinding well. Whatís the best way to get this grinding again? Iím guessing heavy rubbricking but can that be done after itís been waxed?

Had that happen with one of my spots. Itís just shitty concrete and unfortunately thereís not to much you can do once it hits the aggregate. You can paint it(Iíd use rustoleum in the quart can and a roller not spray paint and do a few good coats, wax the hell out of it and go faster, or you could try mixing up some patching concrete and building it up again(havenít done that so canít say if itíd work or not). The repaint does work for a time but youíll need to do it once it gets worn again.

Thereís only the 7/11 tree and curbs at the child development center at CSUC that are still around from that video. Iím guessing youíre at Chico state? Not sure if youíve seen it but some of the locals and Zak just put out the Liquor Bank #2 video.

CSUC Alumni, are the curbs by the fields and track still around? My friends and I would skate those all the time. The curbs between the dorms are also great!

If you mean the red ones that were like a block long from Warner to Esken Hall(side of the student health center)parking lot, no. Went to hit those a couple years ago and theyíre redoing that whole area. Just out of curiosity, when did you go to Chico State? Who knows, I might have known you or at least skated with you at some point.

There was a nice gradient over at Burgers and Brew that I would hit or just manual when Iíd work there.

Very nice. I am envious of your curbs, the only lacquered parking blocks in my neighbourhood disappeared overnight and I havenĎt located any new ones yet. What did you do with the raw parking blocks in the clip to get them grinding ?
Title: Re: Show Me Your Curbs
Post by: Thom on July 22, 2022, 05:56:08 AM
^spray clear coat then lightly wax after

Put another light layer of wax for every like 30 min of skating

Yep - I didnít make those but they look like they just have a coating of clear coat.  Not painted obviously so they aren't super slippery.  I usually just wax my trucks a little bit and they grind easily.

Been eyeing this. Tall on one side, reg curb height on the other. As per usual its unskated and Iíd have to get it going. But damn, it is tempting. Itíd be a morning and evening spot since thats a busy area during the day.

For people asking about how to repair chunky curbs it's not that hard, but definitely time consuming. Here's how I did it:

1. Scrape all the wax off. First with a paint scraper then with a scouring pad with acetone. All of it has to come off.
2. Optional and expensive step but pour concrete densifier on it. This fills air voids and hardens the concrete.
3. Get an angle grinder and a Diamond polishing wheel. They're usually gold and they sell them on Amazon. Make sure it's rated for high RPM.
4. Go along the curb and start hand grinding it and make sure to create a rounded profile. You can grind and polish the rocks.
5. Optional. Fill any large voids with JB Weld Steel Stick.
6. Optional but recommends. Get a hand drill and some 50-100 grit cement polishing pads and start getting it smooth and polished. Way better than a brick IMO but a brick will suffice. Bonus points if you can wet sand.
7. Put some Glaze N Seal over it.
8. 1-3 coats of a thick exterior clear.
9. Optional, but use a fine sanding sponge and wet sand it.
10. Done

I made myself a concrete parking block and I didn't vibrate it enough and it came out like Swiss Cheese. By using some Sika to patch the holes and the steps above I actually don't even need to wax the thing and it slides extremely well.

Post by: rawbertson. on August 08, 2022, 10:48:58 AM
i just put sika over the chunks, smoothed it out, then bricked it a bit and it works fine. i am gonna put some more on and then just spray more lacquer overtop.
