Will post a picture as soon as I get home.

I can see the curb from my living room window, spotted it the first day we moved into the house.

Yellow coated and grinds good, not bad for Europe.
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

Haha, believe it or not, it was super smooth up until 6 months ago when it was used as a staging area for construction equipment and debris.  I had to spend hours cleaning it up to get it skateable again.

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.

something about this curb is just so... cute
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.

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.

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down

I love and hate that manny/curb spot so much. The ground is awful but itís shaded when itís 115 out.


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

They're pretty much everywhere here. Business complexes have some good set ups, as do Home Depots and other big markets
