As far as Pasadena goes, Theres some nice slightly curved ledges at this school a few blocks from my house, best part is no fence to jump. 5 star and rail near by that one.Ledge at filmore train stop. Theres a tall ass hubba at the convention center, the police station and city hall look like a spot (though ive never tried). Villa Park is a spot. Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

To me Caltech looks like a bust. I see ledges in the campus but to me it look like people started to get it going, but get kicked before they could get them fully "grinded down",

Strangely enough while driving through an alley I seen a covered mini ramp behind this building, I drive around in front to see what it is, its a law office...

I do usually save pins, but I think most of those are just in my head.

Iíve seen that same mini ramp behind the office! So weird. I guess lawyers skate too? Or maybe they had a client that wanted to pay in the form of a ramp.

As for CalTech bust factor, I go there fairly regularly. You definitely canít post up with a crew for hours at the same ledge but if you go solo and keep it moving you can do alright. Might be different than usual because of Covid right now. The only time I got hassled there, a security guard actually tried to give me a bottle of water and a bag of masks. Friendliest bust ever.

haha interesting theories. I do want to know the story of the law office mini!

Nice! wonder if that security dude you encountered was a skater. I met this one skater at villa parke that says hes also security at Cal.

I been frequently coming to the campus with my laptop to just be outta the house not having to hear my noisy roomate, and do job apps. Theres new building there and a bunch of new ledges. However, theres plenty of staff and workers around these days.

I been curious if PCC has anything good, but I havent heard much. Got booted from skating flat and  a curb at this Church right by though. Need new slappy spot now.

Damn I think Iím going to skate Herman tomorrow. Iíve wondered about that spot and guessed it was somewhere in the northeast.

Anybody know where the curb up to twelve stair that a lot of people skate is at? Not that I would ever skate it but I just get some deja vu every time I see it and feel like itís somewhere in the area.

PCC had some red curbs next to a knee high ledge by the easternmost parking lot that I had just finished lacquering and waxing before they closed the area off for a construction project, really a bummer. I see kids jumping down a few of the stairsets occasionally and there are still a few good curbs and ledges scattered throughout. Never had a problem with security so far (but Iíve only been here about 8 months).

There are a couple churches that have slappy curbs all waxed up in the old town / playhouse district area, havenít had problems at them yet either.

i'm sure you saw the craig boys a lot while living there
[close]

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.

ah well i mentioned craig cause their house was like less than a block away. i think yonnie griffin stevie and james were livin there at the time
[close]

i was only there for 3 months at the start of 2017, thankfully.

that house sounds like hell. a hell that shall not be imagined.
recent developments have strengthened this statement
Church is worth the money, not wasting money though

currently getting back into skating after a 5 year break and have been seshing the glassell park rec center a couple times a week. have any of yaíll been there? itís so fun and very mellow. 2 ft diy quarterpipe, manny pads, slappy curbs, gap to manny, natural concrete hip/pyramid, etc.... also right next to parsnip and habitat coffee which are great food/bev spots. highly recommend

Eagle rock high. The ground has some gnarly cracks. I went to drive by it one time, sure enough spanky was there. Bet he lives in that neighborhood

Super fun spot. Has a couple long red slappy curbs that go downhill too, frontside and backside, really killer, I miss living over there
