Iím about to burn out my spot but fuck it, I moved to Colorado last year, if youíre near the downey area, right behind WSS/wingstop shoes on Firestone. The WSS is closed down(last time I checked) so itís bust free, I salba sauced the fuck outta the curbs so you can grind for miles, and thereís a long double sided curb to get techy widdit. Ground is paved and smooth as buttery, if you go, please pick up after yourself:) the surrounding businesses have been cool with us skating there. Bail gun gary recently made a pepper grip edit there.

SM is definitely GOAT, but it's very hard to skate. Plus I get super self conscious with all those people around all the time.
Not everyone is made for 666' fakie to fakie sliders! My godt it's going to be a blood bath on these streets.

daytime can be sporadic up until 5pm. It could be super packed and busy with shoppers, or it can be completely empty during business hours. Itís currently summertime and the freshly resealed ground radiates heat. Once the sun starts to set behind the mountains though itís amazing. They installed new led lights about 6 months ago making it easier to skate at nighttime

The ďsceneĒ is sort of cyclical. Itíll be really popular for a little bit and then die out for a while. Everyone that comes fairly regularly for the weeknight sessions are cool. Lately you can catch Ronnie Creager skating the morning sessions. Iíve gone as early as 6am, and Iíve stayed as late as 4am. I like to skate there on weekdays when Iím not working. Sometimes Iíll bring a box, sometimes someone will bring a flatbar, and this one dude even brings a spine ramp sometimes
fuck you bama

Locals at Costco were shockingly friendly to me when I was in town. Granted, I was coming from NYC, where people are generally pretty closed off.

I know the Costco is right by the Polar/LRAB distro warehouse so I think a lot of the guys who work there will session after work and theyíre all super friendly (the ones Iíve met at least)

Was in the area today and swung by. Curbs were dry. Quick wax on my trucks and got a couple of slaps in as a delivery truck driver watched on curiosity (WSS is gonna be a Spirit Halloween, so they were dropping off merch/supplies).

Then I went back about my day.
