Curb spots Long Beach, CA
« on: March 07, 2021, 08:32:59 PM »
Parks have been getting crowded a bit more than I like. What are some good curb spots in the Long Beach area?

I've found the fat parking blocks near Naples, which I like.

I've been wanting to check out the Bellflower DMV, but I don't know if I can get a 6am session in, or if I should just wait until Sundays.

Those Naples curbs are really fun as are the Bellflower DMV. Check out the Dollar Tree in Signal Hill. Some good curbs along with a half circle/U shaped curb. CSULB has a long red double sided curb and then there's Cerritos High School has some really good curbs as well. Feel free to send me a PM if you need any help.

Yea. I went to them a couple of times. A lot of people skating when I went. I'm usually trying to do some solo riding as I'm not the best at curbs and don't want to embarrass myself.

Bellflower is my go-to spot most weekends, but with the time change coming up this weekend, you can get after hours sessions in for an hour as they close at 5pm and it's empty by 6pm usually...but I prefer Sat/Sun there. 
Belmont actually has a couple of decent curbs.  Tennis courts at Marine Stadium near the farmers market has a double and single sided option.

You're not even on the good side!  ha.  I'll be out there this weekend most likely.  Sat or Sun.  I usually roll like 11am or so, say what's up if you see me.  I always get sparked seeing real life SLAP pals in the wild.  James Craig and I had an epic meet up with a Detroit SLAP pal one year at the Red Bull contest there.

I was leaving towards the Artesia exit and saw the long stretch. Part of me wanted to stay and hit that other section, but I had to jam. Gonna try to get out there again this weekend.

I live right down from the street from the Rosieís curbs. That is the only spot I skate these days. Where are the Naples curbs? Here I am skating dog beach about a month ago. Say hi if you see me.

Naples curbs arenít too far from Rosieís. From Ocean, go up Bay Shore (past 2nd St) until you hit Appian Way. There youíll see a large parking lot. There are wide parking blocks closer to the water. Just look for the black one thatís been waxed like crazy.

Thereís the bank to curb on the beach. That things fun for a little bit if youíre in the area. Thereís also the harder to skate bank to curb in Signal Hill. Not sure if thereís an exact address or not, but the gps coordinates are 33.80651,-118.16302

Bellflower dmv gets a lot of praise from some of my friends. Gonna make it down there and check it out sometime soon

The Scum Hole? I bike by it all the time. I've never really ridden banks, so I'm curious to try.

I'm moving right down the street from the dog beach next weekend! Is this spot good to skate pretty much any day of the week?

Yep, you can skate them whenever. Most of the curb spots here are skateable any day.

Oh Iíve skated that Naples spot. Thanks for letting me know the name. You can skate the curbs whenever, but I prefer skating Dog Beach on weekdays because there are less people at the beach and less cars to worry about. It gets pretty busy on nice weekends. There are some ledges right next to the pool that some rollerblader has been waxing up, I havenít skated them too much yet though.

Really fun spot but definitely bring a broom to not only sweep the spot but also to block your board from going into the water runoff.

After a few weeks off the board, was able to get in a session at the DMV today. And I actually saw a bunch of people there other than a dude who races his RC car around the parking lot.

Naples curbs are great.

I grew up around the corner from the San Pedro dmv on gaffey and those curbs are wonderful.

Just gotta cross the bridge. And you can hit peck park too.

I learned how to slappy at the curbs in Long Beach next to the Home Depot that had a in and out in the same parking lot.

Can anyone tell me where those curbs are that Cory keen as been posting videos at? Looks like a library or something.
