I'm going to spend some time in cyprus this summer. The ditches over there look amazing but I am struggling to find spots online. Has anybody been skating there?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Last time I went was in 2010 and I took my board, although I didn't skate all of these spots as I was out with family (par the fountain one in Protaras which I got to skate). I wouldn't bother with the parks as the recent ones don't look up to par. Cyprus seems to have a lot of untapped spots around whenever I've seen locals do edits, although I guess it's better than it being blown out like Barca. Anyways;

Outside Larnaca Municipal Art Gallery there's a a cool fountain spot, you can pop down and skate the ledges inside or outside. Right next to it there's a little statue that has a manny/tiny ledge combo that looks pretty fun. There's lots of flatground and the spot looks pretty cool at night.

There's a rad plaza spot that seems to be one of the 'main' spots people visit when they do trips to Cyprus that's in Nicosia. As me and a few friends were meant to go two years ago I finally found out where this was by scouring Google Maps ahah. This is right next to a church called Panagia Palouriotissa. This has tons of ledges here.

There's a cool hip pyramid type setup in Ayia Napa, right next to the Thalassa museum. Although the surface doesn't seem to be amazing. I wouldn't check this out if you're in the party central times although, with COVID being around that's probably not even a worry..

On the main road next to Capo Bay in Protaras there's the fountain ledge that's been seen in a lot of footy over the years, that's pretty fun to skate. They kind of curve around.

I remember seeing some cool bits down Ayia Napa Harbour that seemed skated, lots of little steps and ledges...I saw some Israeli guys if I'm right, skating these. I cannot pin point it nor find them on Google Maps when I last looked. Possibly been changed in the past ten years? I dunno.

There are a row of these businesses that have a driveway type gap, there's one constantly skated in edits but I cannot find that one at all. It's on the main road on the way into Larnaca if I'm not mistaken.

That's all I can think of on top of my head. Take a look at some edits because there's lots of cool hits within the streets there as well.

I hope to get back out there at some point.

Oh and IIRC there are some ledges and other bits down towards Paphos Harbour, all looked skated. I forgot to add there's a Zoo that's been in a lot of footage, with these planter type little quarters/kickers. I have no clue where this one is, but it's in a lot of footy.

Previous post covers lots of spots and for sure you will run into other skaters at those places.

I have a couple groups of friends living down their that rip.  Let me know if you are interested in meeting up with some locals for le tour de spots.

Pretty much lots of Plazas (with mostly marble or granite ledges) and a few Ditches (nothing as smooth and nice as Cali but still fun).

Cheers.
