damn i really want to move out to long beach. i visited last summer and stayed with some homies like 5 mins away from cherry. i love the area and the amount of nice curbs that are in the vicinity really solidify how much i want to move there.

Just skated some really fun curbs in the marina parking lot between the crab pot and schooner or later. Curbs for days and there is a slappy curb gap to double sided curb transfer option.

I skated these curbs twice recently. That slappy curb gap to double sided is scary to hit haha. That is a fun spot tho, low traffic.

I also hit that U-shaped curb at dollar tree in signal hill recently. that thing was much harder to get around than it looks

anyone ever hit the little DIY behind trader joes? I am wondering who maintains that. skate it every now and again and I haven't really ever seen skaters there. they recently put in a gnarly bank to bank with a long rail going across

Which Trade Joes? Marina? Or on Bellflower?

I've seen vids of Ace Pelka riding the DIY, so I assume him and Rhino built that spot.

Or were your talking the curbs near the TJ's on Bellflower in the parking lot where Sears used to be. I saw some skaters patch cracks in the curbs and throw some Salba Sauce on it, so those things are SLICK.

Iíve skated that diy behind TJís in the Marina. That thing is sketchy, but kind of fun.

Does anyone know of any street tranny spots around Long Beach?

Also the one along the beach path. Just bring a shovel. That thing constantly needs to be cleaned out.

It's a bust now that students are back on campus and that campus security is getting a bit strict again.

The old Sears parking lot near Deli News Pizza has lights and a maintained curb. Don't know how well lit it is at night though.

Bellflower DMV is lit well into the night.

I am going to be on a work trip near Long Beach next Monday but definitely staying somewhere in Long Beach in the afternoon/evening. Are the double sided curbs by the beach still maintained at all? It's been a minute since I've been that way but if memory serves correctly, they're by the lifeguard station. Thanks for the all of the previously mentioned curb spots near the water as well!

This is in Santa Ana, Greenville Elementary. Same school with the perfect long double sided curb.

I'm not sure if this is a curb spot, but last time I was in Long Beach a few months ago, I heard people talking about a DIY. What's there and where's it at?

Tons of stuff. Parking block ledges, gaps, over rails, quarter pipes.

@TastyBurrito could be wrong because itís been a while since I have been there but I think those are the Firestone banks in San Gabriel river bed off the 605

@Huell Howser @EmericaTM Where does one usually park when they hit the Firestone banks? That Lil Indy go-kart parking lot?

Last time I went I parked in that park on the other side of the ditch. If you park there, right when you get into the ditch is also the little kicker over gap that Lutzka frontside 360 kickflipped. Just skate on down towards Firestone and the banks are just right there under the road.
