Bumping because I skated a curb that I used to skate 10+ years ago. Still grinds and a classic spot :)

Anybody have any luck doing ollies into nose grinds on curbs? I always stick, feels like if a curb or whatever isnt at least a foot high then you cant nose grind it( for me anyway)

Super real. Never understood this... I've thought it's because of ollieing too high but I have not been able to figure out the finesse

... and thatís not even everything on the first floor

This was definitely the spot to be in the winter for a while.

Of course some jerkoff kids kicked in some supply closet doors and like pissed on stuff and stole things and it was a bust for a full year

Now itís not so bad again.

I would enjoy skating this spot a lot. Thanks

Thatís a spot I prepped thats 15mins from the house. Thereís lots of other spots, but I live pretty far from most of them. I have one double sided curb spot but the ground sucks, and itís on a hill.

If anyone finds themselves in Long Beach, NY, this bad guy is on the corner of Oceanview and Kentucky. Somebody who isnít me coated it in a nice layer of lacquer and wax. Just needs to be skated a little more before it really starts to go.

God that spot looks fun.  Looks like you could skate it half a dozen different ways.

If you can't handle me at my Marc Johnson, you don't deserve me at my Bobby Puleo.

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.

Here's another pic from the first night I went.

Nice work. I'm digging the setting with the forested hills and red brick building. Whereabouts is this?

First post! These are from the 808!!

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.

Rub bricked the inside of this tight corner pocket, ive yet to slap it tho, its tighter than any corner ive slapped before, which is like 1.

Lotta options on this weird little oddity. Its the chillest spot, got shade, lots of flatground, and a bathroom.

Fun thing to do on this is slap onto the top instead of an ollie, then do a trick off the pad.

Those look like really fun spots.
