@cosmicgypsies sorry about the paint bombing of your curb. On the upside the slaps were quite good.
@streetmeat not Midwest but in Nor Cal they did the parking lot at a school like that. I tried bricking them, sauce, & wax. But just like you said, crap that would just chunk out when youíd hit them. Way worse that skate stopping a spot.

Try sealing the chalky curb with concrete sealer



Let us know if it works

anyone else live in midwest hell where all new construction of curbs are made with that brushed texture and the concrete itself is 'chalky' and feels super soft? theres so much new construction with would-be sick spots but i need a god damn respirator, 3 rub bricks and a gallon of coating to make these things work /rant
You might be better off rolling your own curbs. Fully water cured and hardened.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

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

Looks like all the curbs here in the Midwest. I canít think of a single curb in my area that isnít rounded like that. Grinds definitely donít lock in but nose and tailslides are still butter. Iím 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.


Yeah, same as most Aussie curbs.  In hindsight, I wish I knew about wax and just fillled the dip with concrete.  We spent all day every day skating our street and just trying to olllie grind dry curbs or with copers on.

These are the TV curbs.
Bust factor zero so long as you respect the space.

I like to pretend I'm Jim Greco when I skate here.

Jobs never era. I feel in my heart Jim has reached the highest level of punk.  He's basically a full on Buddha now. I'm a certifRied pOnk shaman so I can see it clear AF.
 

Here's some more beautiful curbs.






The 76 Stairs in Marblehead mass

Haven't been since last year. Sauced for decades rarely sees or needs wax but it's not illegal.

Wouldn't surprise me if I'm the only one who still hits these from time to time.

Skating is dead in Marblehead and it's sinful. I got our kids to learn to bomb a hill and that was that. Now it ms up to them to pick up one of the 10 old boards in the garage at my brother's house.

I hate cellphones and video games.
