The 10 Best Skate Spots in Manila

Thanks to these spots, the local skate scene is up and about!

 

(SPOT.ph) The local skate scene is rocking nowadays, but truth be told, it was never dead in the first place. Just as skating is becoming more and more diverse, mainstream Manila is thankfully and finally catching up. Aside from the classic black-topped decks, we've got speed demon longboards, and mini cruisers that come in more colors than a gay pride parade. It’s about time. Here, in no particular order, we list 10 of the best skate spots in Manila.

 

But first, a word of caution: Before you run off and hit up the spots with whatever you choose to ride, there are two things to keep in mind. First, the following aren't the only places for action. Nothing beats the feeling of finding a little slice of skate heaven to call your own, so don’t limit yourselves to the ones listed below. Get exploring. Second, observe things before you do anything. Notice how people aren't constantly crashing into each other no matter how crowded it is? That’s thanks to an invisible web of organization. Identify who the alpha dogs are, locate fellow neophytes, and check yourself accordingly. No one wants a cool guy, if you know what we mean.
