    Well Peter. I live an hour from Perth, so I havn't skated loads of Perths famous spots, because I've been busy trying to find ones in the bush. I like to go to small towns and find gems. Anyway.

    One of the most famous spots in the world is in Perth, Woolstores. It's in Fremantle. The cbd in perth has skate spots gallore! Just skate around and find them. Other spots you just have to drive around and look.

    never been there personally but a lot of my friends have. providing you with that video link for inspiration purposes, from an outsider's perspective there seems to be plenty of spots !

    Hey Dude I know a legendary spot near the Esplande Busport when you go down the stairs outside near the train station bit. Turn Left towards the construction part (towards the city not near the river). Walk down that road and you'll see a carpark with small ledges you can ride onto. Not many poeple skate there but its pretty new I can do 50-50's on there its pretty fun.

    Theres also stockies which is an eight stair and there is also bupa 5 stair near beyondskate just ask the guys there and they'll tell ya.

    Lol nah Peter. You just have to look and not be fussy (not implying you're). Perth is a fucking treasure trove for spots. We manage to find loads of spots in our small town and surrounding towns. When we come to perth we don't know where to start, there is shit everywhere, stairsets galore, ledges galore.

    Watch some local vids, these guys found spots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCBfVa8V98M
    Dylan rides and works at momentum. Plus loads of local vids by amateurs like us. You really just have to look man.

    Every suburb has stuff, even Midland has lots of spots, even Mundaring.

    ahh there's this church I skated near harbour town that had a 6 stair, there was also an 8 stair near there but I never tried it. The church has some funny runs out the back too. I also skated this ledge/barrier that led to a drop at this parking spot close by to that church, really rough surface and a small run up though. Near subiaco there are ledges where there used to be a halfpipe which I used to skate nearly every day in highschool. There's also these ledge/manny pad sort of things in the city near the bell tower I think, I skated that a few when no one else was there.

    Yeah man those manny pad things are sick near the bell tower. That spot right there is so chill. My buddies and I stayed there for 3 or so hours just chilling around. I got some good footy of it too.
