Is there a particular paint to use for quikcrete obstacles? Also, I havenít skated many that are painted: how slick do they get?

Gloss exterior paint, gloss clear coat or gloss concrete sealer for slickness. Waterborne paint for classic socal curb, it's not slick but has a clay base that feels good to grind

Rustoleum high heat enamel is a nice paint for concrete, dries hard for a nice slide. Just try and paint on a cloudy day, the direct sun can make things a little sticky

Thanks, thatís good advice. Iím trying to put some color on a couple features like at Barrier Spot (@:47). Yíall think the recommendations made are similar to what they used?
