Moved to California recently and donít have a new curb spot.

said no one ever
Let me preface this post with the fact that I am slightly inebriated, very uneducated and I havent read any papers or done any research at all, or read your post really.

First ones got a bunch but thatís the main curb, pretty much a bust nowadays but you can get 10 minutes or so

Second one I stumbled across the first week I moved into the area, only seen two other people at the spot in 3 years and they were using it as a manny pad and not touching the curb

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?

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.


Wicker Park?
You know I thought these forums were a for skating not discussing fetishes

I miss the round metal-edged curbs in New York. Those things are a slappy dream come true.

Right?

Sorry for the size.

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 :)
One post in and he's threatening pro skaters with violence over their shitty bands. Best first post ever?

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.

First spot makes the 1992 in me very stoked. I mean this in a good way.

These curbs are  few blocks from my house. There is a long long downhill red one and a nice turned yellow one at the bottom. The asphalt is new and smooth. Only the occasional football dad likes to tell me I'm a bad influence on the kids....

Really? I love black top for skating flat. Slippery enough to cheat any 360 variation I would usually have to pivot. Unless the black top lots I've skated are different than the normal ones.
i pop my shields and sprinkle some sand in there. i want to make sure i approach that ledge as slow as possible so i dont slip out on my 5050s

Jealous of those long painted curbs you americans have, here in Norway theyíre always raw concrete, and usually made out of shorter pieces that often have wide cracks between them that need to be filled.

My friend brought a parking block into his basement and painted/sauced it so I guess it counts as a curb spot now
