Front yard

That’s a great height to mess around with learning new stuff on

Here's my new go to curb. It is a rare specimen of a lacquered curb in Switzerland, plus it's only a few minutes from where I live AND it has a lamp directly above it. I can only skate it on Sundays but I am not going to complain. The cracks look gnarly but I rarely hang up on those...





Zumikon represent! Thumbs up.

mine at my house. It's too rounded and the dip from asphalt to concrete isn't the best.

Still looks fun tho. Been showing my curb some love this week after neglecting for a couple weeks. Hit it with a couple coats of lacquer

Looks like a rad spot. I don't have a curb at my place. Wish I did. It's a damned slope.
I don’t care what anyone says, a tit mouse’s tibia is a thing of beauty.
The streets await

thanks guys, it's definitely fun for me. Usually I'm just there hitting it while my 5yr old son tries to figure it out too. I'm definitely lucky that theres at least two other way better slappy spots within walking distance from my house. The radius on my curb makes it pretty impossible to lock into anything, but one of the spots near me all of their curbs are trapezoid shaped. No vertical face, perfect angle, thick yellow paint that grinds and slides with no wax needed.

Skating trucks that fit over both sides really makes me appreciate the work put in to make it sound like that

Looks like all the curbs here in the Midwest. I can’t think of a single curb in my area that isn’t rounded like that. Grinds definitely don’t lock in but nose and tailslides are still butter. I’m still envious of having a spot right in front of the house. If my wife ever talks me into moving a nice curb out front is a must.

I just imagined you talking to a real estate salesperson.

They: The apartment is spacious, great views and a nice front lawn…
You: How about the curbs in front of the house and close vicinity, are they rounded? Got lacquered ones? A double sided curb might win me over…
why come?

Realistically I could eliminate houses with a simple google maps street view search so I might not have to have that weird conversation. If I have my way I’ll never have to move anyhow despite the constant nudging of my wife. We have been in our house for 7 and a half years and have a good interest rate. Anywhere else we would move would be way more expensive.
