What clear/lacquer are you guys using for curbs. I have a raw curb at my house and Iíve decided to not paint and just use clear.

That looks good too, Iíve heard any brush on concrete Sealer will work really well. I just donít have a garage and donít want to deal with a can of sealer in my car trunkÖ the spray can enamel is easier for me (for now). If I eventually have a garage or workshop, Iíll try paint on sealers for sure.
not all brush-on sealer is created equal! i think i mentioned this earlier in the thread somewhere but i bought some low-luster stuff that didnt do shit. then i went out and grabbed "wet-look" sealer, which grinded like fuckin ICE after the first coat. so if you have a choice, get whatever seems the shiniest and thickest. "wet look" is great.

Behr wet look sealer #985. I got a jug and have done 6 curbs so far and have enough leftover for about 35 more curbs.

Anyone prepped a pretty rough 'stony' curb?  There's one near the skate park that's perfect, but it's pretty gritty.  Was thinking that painting it might be the go, not sure though.

I woke up Monday morning with a single goal in mind, slappy the park curb.

Coming from back alley curbs and park garages this thing was double in height. Fair to say I couldnít even bonk from the side, gave up and found a nice slanted curb in a multi storey place a few streets on from the local

feebles, to me at least, are so easy to hold and sit in forever.

Very true. Get a good double sided one and you can feeble forever or dip to smith and ride it out. Super fun.

I am jealous. That looks beautiful. I hope that is bust-free spot for lazy sundays. Bs slappy through the curve and shuv out, maybe? Seems pretty nice for that.

actually sunday may be the only time you can't skate it cause its at a church. i showed up at 1pm last sunday though, and everyone was long gone for the day. also the pastor came up to me today and told me it was cool if we skate there, just "you are on your own if you get hurt". so everything is going right at this place  ;D

I like your thinking.

Yeah so good with a slight corner as well, which would be fun!

Even better that they give you permission to skate there too.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Slappy on a beautiful red curb sure feels good, but how about slappy's on rugged shitty curbs you are not supposed to slappy/grind? Feels so good and magical to bulldoze through them!!!

"wet look" is great.

Following a rub-bricking, I just the other day put two coats of Behr "Wet Look" sealant on a parking block up the street from my house. The concrete was super chunky, but after a good coating of wax and enough truck-aluminum deposits, it's grinding nicely. I'd say it's at least as good as spray lacquer, and I was able to apply it in full view of a police office who I presume would have paid more attention had he heard the rattling of a spray can.

Is this just a type of polyurethane? It sure looked and smelled exactly like a poly finish I've applied to wood a thousand times.

There's a stair at my local skatepark which has been used for slappys now for at least a decade. It's so insanely ground down, with huge chunks missing from it, and getting on there and just letting it rip is so much fun and sooooo satisfying.

Yeah definitely this. But I would argue what feels even better is when you're just skating down the street, not having a session, and you see a curb and you rip a nice slappy without knowing whether or not it will grind at all. That's my favorite.

I was in SF once and I saw one of the granite curbs and I just went for it frontside and got a nice long grind and just kept pushing on, barely slowed down. I felt like such a pro.

All this crusty curb talk got me eager to do a front 50 on a dry curb. Felt so goddamn satisfying.

Also I once slapped my kingpin so hard on a kinda crusty curb that sparks started to fly around on some tail devil shit. Can't lie that that made me feel proud when my friends pointed it out.

I am always surprised when I smash into a unprepared curb and it starts to grind. Such a cool feeling.
