    Default Perth Skaters

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone from here is in Perth?

    Also if you know any spots in and around Perth.

    West Perth here.
    Spots? Perth's pretty sketchy to find good spots. You should just try take your board and walk around, you're bound to find a few ledges, even stairs.

    Fremantle Woolstores is pretty good for guys who're pretty advanced at grinds and ledge skating. I tried it out but all I could accomplish were a few sketchy 50-50s and like one 5-0. A bit too hard for me.

    I'm kinda new in Perth so I don't know

    If you're in Perth, check out Leederville (home of the WA SBA and not always open so be sure to turn up during hours of admission), Bassendean, Bayswater (insane vert), Victoria Park (sick bowl, a CONVIC park) and if you're just south of Perth, definitely Mandurah and Rockingham.

    Southlands and Manning aren't bad either. The quality of parks in Perth isn't very high though.

    Apparently there's a nice park at the melville rec, corner of stock road and canning highway, but havent managed to get up there yet, and i'm told that if you go to clancys fish pub in freo, there's a nice, quite famous little spot, just over the road, but again, I haven't managed to get down there yet

    The Bayswater park was pretty busy the couple of times I dropped by, lots of young kids on scooters though.

    I like cruising the new bicycle paths with the red concrete they're putting in everywhere. Really smooth and wide and no joins (cla-clack! cla-clack! cla-clack!).
