« on: December 06, 2021, 09:47:05 AM »
Iím going to SF in February and my homie and I are planning on staying in Berkeley because he tells me itís more mellow and the spots are more relatable. What are some good, easygoing spots in Berkeley? Specifically, any good curb spots would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

Rockridge curbs and North Berkeley Bart both have good curbs.

What else do you like to skate

Moved here a few months ago and Rockridge Bart station is a really cool mellow place to go skate around at. I know itís not a lot of peopleís favorite place that Iíve met up here but Joseph Emery park is fun one to mess around at as well.

Emeryville has a really nice, low ledge thats fun.
You'll probably like Bella Vista elementary in Oakland. Its a schoolyard with an assortment of ledges, little flatbars, a steep bank and a few bumps.

As far as spots go, Hollis in Emeryville, Sproul Plaza on the UC Berkeley Campus, Oakland Courthouse are all good ledge spots off the top of my head

I'm interested in moving to the area. Is it comparable to LA? I'd take the LA metro and always had access to good transition spots during the day and street spots at night.

It seems like there's more job opportunities for me in the Berkeley area.

Bart is pretty cool and reliable for the most part for me, usually pair it with my bike if itís a good day out and I donít want to drive.

Rockridge Bart station is a good place to meet people as well, I spend a lot of time there skating and hanging out after work and stuff. Everyone is usually pretty nice.

I'll second Courthouse and Rockridge, especially Rockridge. I love that spot and the vibes there are always great.

Another good one is Bella Vista park in Oakland. It's a little city approved DIY attached to an elementary school. Lots of mellow ledges, manny pads, and few ramps, and a halfpipe. It doesn't seem like it gets too busy and the people there are usually really friendly. It's pretty much the only spot that my friend who lives in Oakland skates.

Havenít hit the courthouse yet, but Iíve been to Rockridge once since Iíve been out here so far, love that spot.

Bell vista is dope, I went there in February when I was actually staying in Berkeley.
