frogtown skatepark is fun and you'll definitely meet people there. look up "lewis macadams riverfront park"
if you skate north along the river next to the park, you'll encounter a couple spots you'll recognize within a few minutes. griffith park is nearby as well and very fun, drive along crystal springs drive and you'll find the ditch
Church is worth the money, not wasting money though

Silverlake Ramen is the best place to stop and get a meal while out and about. Especially, if you go around 2 or 3 in the afternoon when there isn't a line.

Silverlake is like perfectly located and youíll be close to tons of spots throughout LA.
 
Iím in Highland Park which is like 15 mins away and hereís some spots you could check out:

Franklin High School has these banks that are super fun and usually a trash can or bench to skate as well. Youíve def seen it in videos before. The banks are right off the ave 53 side of the school. Oh and the 18 that Arto skates in Sorry and Templeton lipslid in This Is Skateboarding is there lol, cool spot to check out for the history alone.

Garvanza and South Pasadena skatepark are also really close and fun.

Home Depot curbs/DIY off of Figueroa St. in Cypress Park is close by and always fun. Youíll also be close to Frogtown park mentioned above over there.

The banks with the channel gap that the wknd team and others always skate is off Eagle Rock blvd in glassell park.

Lots of others if you just drive/skate around!

If you only have a weekend and are doing other stuff, I'd do this:

Bronson Canyon ditch, Griffith Park, Kenny Anderson ledges (friendship auditorium), Home depot curbs and Lockwood. Also the art school where tons of people skate now: Ramůn C. Cortines School of Visual and Performing Arts. From that school you can easily head into DTLA via grand Ave and you'll come up on this flat ground spot on the left, you will recognize, that also has ledges and stairs. Mini jkwon is not far from the art school and across the street are these banks that have been in a bunch of stuff. Intersection of Sunset and Figueroa.

Silver lake, echo park, Los Feliz all have random things sprinkled around everywhere, but if time, driving, parking is an issue, I'd stick to the above list. Might be worthwhile to explore Wilshire too and skate jkwon aka Korea radio.

I can't add too much to what has already been said, but Silverlake is pretty centrally located as far as being in the cut of Los Angeles goes.
I would say don't get sucked into Downtown unless you have specific places you'd like to go. Skating isn't that great downtown, but the surrounding neighborhoods are great like Koreatown, Highland Park, Pasadena...
Also, maybe just download a free skatespot app on your phone for quick references. Most apps are not great, but they might have that one spot your looking for or just a suggestion that might put you in a cool area.

PM me if you find yourself having some extra time or want to link for a session!

You're right, my bad. In my head eagle rock seems like a pretty long street but it was easy tracking it down with street view. Gonna try to go skate that spot tomorrow.

It's pretty hard to hit, but looks cool - good luck!

i lived at 114, which is right next to the spot, but this was back in 2017, and i don't remember it being a spot then. i'm pretty sure the bank you land in was completely grass/dirt at the time.

How many of you/us live in Koreatown? I dated a girl on 8th & New Hampshire and have a friend in the same building so I stayed there a lot. I used to live by Lafayette and now I live 2 blocks from J Kwon on James M Wood. It's surprisingly a pain in the ass to find a decent flat for a weekday afternoon. I'll settle by driving to Ramon Cortinez or the local schoolyards in the neighborhood.

For those interested, you can skate J Kwon on Sundays but I don't want to bother with that zoo. When I do, its a go after 9 on a weeknight.

there's no flat in koreatown because every inch of available space is taken up by a car. parking is so fucked.

Iím in Pasadena so Iíll just drop a few tips that Iíve figured out so far for anyone whoís interested:
-DIY spot on the bike path near south Pasadena skatepark (which is a pretty lame park sadly)
-CalTech campus has some good ledges and is only a mild bust

However Iím new here and most of my friends live closer to silver lake/echo park, so Iím sure there are tons of spots I donít know. Anyone wanna add to the Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley list? Not sure if it warrants its own new thread or not.

And of course I would echo what everyone else says about the Costco curbs and the Home Depot curbs, both a lot of fun.
