Iím heading to GR to check out that new Steele Ave DIY & maybe Clemente. Are there any fun spots with curbs?

Also, what are good coffee spots & veg friendly food spots?

Clemente has a long curb, maybe 2? Itís been a minute.

Premier is a must those dudes are very friendly.

Sigsbee is a one of a kind spot. 1250 sigsbee st se. Itís gotten a face lift but I havenít been since 2019. And it was very rough but worth it.

Thereís a whole Grand Rapids spot insta. Or maybe itís gone.
For someone w.no signature ur awfully hostile, & that is why I do this

Good rec's^

You from Michigan @Bummer Vacation ?

Clemente is pure class and the slappy curb is a beaut. Steele Ave is not for the faint of heart, but it's fun.

Oakes St. curbs are popular, right around the corner from Premier. Go in the shop, it's fucking great.

The best slappy curbs in town (in my opinion) are in a parking garage near Fish Ladder Park. There is a perfect curb there, you won't be disappointed.

I'm a fan of Squibb coffee, Madcap is popular too. Used to go to this spot called Bitter End all the time, cool lil place.

There are lots of food in town, most spots have solid veg options and there are good Indian spots if you're into that.

Edit: as far as spots go, Clemente really has it all. We often set out to skate street and end up there all day because it's so fun.

Yep. When my girlfriend finishes up her masterís this summer she has to stay in state for a year & GR is on the short list of spots weíd be open to moving to. So this is kind of a skate trip disguised as a scouting mission. Haha.

Thanks for all the info!

Steele Ave was def a lot tighter than it looks in photos but I still had fun.

The curb at Clemente was a blast but suuuuuuper slick. Took a minute to get used to.

We hit up Tacos El Cunado which was pretty good.

Stopped by the Belding park before heading home. Weird transition (per usual with Evergreen parks IMO) but I just had fun with the challenge of finding the lines.

Iíll def be back out later in the summer.
