Why locals recommend it
I can't skateboard myself, but it’s a trip to see the talent and skill at this skate park on the beach. It draws all ages, from famous skaters to beginners. Just watch for a bit—or be bold enough to jump in yourself. Take a stroll north on the beach till you hit the rings and the tight rope at the Original Muscle Beach in Santa Monica. Now this is a sight to see. You’ll find people doing the craziest tricks on those things and just be mesmerized by their talent.
Tips from locals
Go watch skateboarders shred an iconic skatepark, right on the beach. Just watch out for flying skateboards!
This is what Southern California is about, skateboard with the beach background. Some professional skateboarders might show up. It’s really fun to watch. Add this as a stop to your beach boardwalk stroll between Santa Monica and Venice
