Tricks that some Latvians have done on a blue piece of metal in Riga
Brick kicker/bump over a meter of flat and a curb. Run up goes slightly downhill, so it is easy to get speed. The street is semi busy. Rare kickouts. Mostly people are upset when you skate it in the evening.
Address: Lačpleša iela 7
Directions: Take the bike lane from the National Museum up Skolas street, turn right on Lačpleša street.
One of the most popular handrails in Riga. Mostly skated down. Can be skated as a flat bar. You can also jump over it or do a hippy jump. It is almost like a skatepark rail but on street. Has nine stairs. The run up is a bit sketchy and potentially narrow for some. They tried to knob it but it didn’t work. Kickouts are possible.
Addres: Usmas iela 2
Directions: Take 1st tram from the center and get of at Botaniskais Darzs stop. Follow the tram direction, it goes over the bridge. The spot is on the right side of the bridge.
