Santa Monica / Venice Skate Spots








































SANTA MONICA:

 

Santa Monica High School, located at 601 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405.

Host to the infamous greek pool gap.

there is also tons of stairs and rails, including everything from an 11, 14, 5, 7, 2, you name it.

In the greek theater there are ledges a little lower than knee high.  These are good for lines and just fun in general.  Bring wax.

 

BEACH SEVEN:

Located on the beach a block or two north of Pico blvd or 4 blocks south of the Santa Monica Pier

The seven has a perfect landing and is fun for everyone.

Nearby there is a 5 and a 4 for people who don't feel up to skating the 7.  There is a ledge (frontside for goofy, backside for reg skaters) leading out over the 7 but you have to gap it since there is a big chunk taken out.  The run up to the 7 is sloped  and then levels out for "easier speed"  This is really fun since you don't have to push to gain speed.  Watch out for pedestrians since it is located on the beach walk path.  I have never been kicked out of here and I skate here often.

 

DOUGLAS PARK

Located at 25th and Wilshire.  A recreational park that has a surprisingly large amout of obstacles.  Uufortunately, during summer there are water fountains in the skate area, but its ok to skate after 6.  It has lights for night skateing.  Some
of the obstacles are a grass gap on two sides, low ledges mid shin high.
 Because its a park, be prepared for little kids and their bitchy mothers.  Ice cream truck is there until about 5.

Paul Revere Middle School
address: Sunset Blvd. and Allenford
description: A middle school which has been skated since the 70's . There are banks at the upper part of the school the biggest one being about 12 feet high. Inside the school is a nice six stair and five stair hand rails also a 3 flat 2, and the "Koston Gap" seen in "Yeah Right" It is a roof over a 5 foot long, 1 story high gap and over a 3 foot rail. To get inside you must climb a gate, but sometimes it is open if you are lucky.






VENICE
 
Venice skatepark Located on the beach south of Windward st. Known for the Kidney ledge/manny pad. there is a really crappy "1/4 pipe" but its really just a ledge high thing.
