Moving to Seattle
« on: January 08, 2017, 10:49:09 AM »
Im moving to Seattle from LA  in a little less than two weeks. It'd be cool to meet up and skate some parks up there. If any Seattle Pals want to skate - let me know!

This has been the worst winter on record.
Average temp is 32.
You won't be skating outdoors much.
I'm way south of seattle, lots of skateparks though.

If I lived there still. But if you are in federal way are hit up 35th ave. 35th north is next to the cal anderson park. Psycho Mike always puts on stuff at cal anderson, the "courts" lots of cool shit to skate. I am coming home to Seattle in about a week I might run into you haha.

Look for SLAP's OIAM '08 winner Ben Cabreana at Judkins, tell him you want to have a ramen burrito with him and you'll have a friend for life
I have two words for you: greg lutza's fedora

Moved to Seattle a few months ago and was wondering if any of y’all got recs for covered spots now that the rain has come. Also anything that’s lit up at night would be cool too.

Not sure if it's still going strong but C5 (basically right under Red Square at Washing Univ.) was always a fun session when I lived out there.

It's just flat ground, but it's really smooth. Parking garage next door to Theo chocolate HQ in Fremont. Never been booted, just don't litter, hit cars, basic human decency stuff. Oh it's also more a weekend/after 5 kind of thing.
You know I thought these forums were a for skating not discussing fetishes

Make sure to buy vitamin D supplements, a sunlight lamp, and generally check in with yourself during the wet months. I'm from LA and went to Seattle for college. I ended up transferring because SAD fucked me up pretty badly.

Definitely not saying this to discourage you, it's a great city. Depending on where you live it's super walkable, the public transit has greatly improved in recent years and there's fantastic food (especially in the ID). I just wish I would've been better prepared so I could've taken advantage of more that Seattle had to offer.

I was worried about that myself but have been so busy with two jobs it hasn’t affected me all that much yet. I should be starting school in January too so that will keep me busy.

I found this to be the case myself almost immediately after moving here.

I've got rooms for rent next to C5. It's 660 all bills paid. Few different properties but all close to the spot.

lol. Lots of bad elements to Seattle, but trade off for skating isn't so bad. Seemed like it rains more in Pennsylvania and Oklahoma.

Curious what it is about the people in Seattle you guys don't like. I'm from this area and a lot of times I don't like the people. I even lived out of state for a long time partly because I wanted to get away from them. Now that I've been back a while, I'm starting to remember again why they suck. They're often passive aggressive and take themselves way too seriously. They dress frumpy but still want to be noticed. They can't take a joke. They're fake humble and are actually full of themselves. They're nosy like small town people. They suppress their true thoughts and feelings only to talk shit about people behind their backs. Of course not everyone's like this but a lot of them are.
