Long Beach is a gem in South LA! This sunny place is definitely worth a visit. The pretty beaches meet a vibrant urban community. Even better are the skateparks! In this blog, we’ve lined up our favourite skatespots in Long Beach:

Robert Gumbimer Skatepark

This outdoor skatepark has everything you need! This compact skatepark is located near East Village. It has a super nice curved ledge. Would you take on the challenge? There is a steep ramp that flows into other obstacles. You can combine this with a kicker or rails. There are benches lined up near the side. These aren’t just for taking a break ;). You can combine this with the bowl-meets-ramp situation on the edge of the park. You can get creative here and push yourself! With enough speed you can flow to the park with ease. Make sure to visit this park.

Bixby Skatepark Long Beach

This park is a real eye-catcher! The red obstacles colour the concrete. Its nickname even is Cherry Park ;). It is an iconic skatepark in the community. There is a funbox and pole jam. There are also enough kickers, gaps and bumps. The set-up is great! It can get quite busy during the day. You can also visit it at night. Everything is well-lit and much quieter after dark. The rails and ledges are well-maintained. They remain super smooth. This makes it super easy to grind!
