Healing Rooms of San Antonio was a Church that was home to a heavy gap to rail. To reach the rail, you needed to haul ass up a handicapped ramp and ollie out over the guard rail to get to the 8 stair handrail. Not many people stepped to the rail, but became a popular spot after the release of Emerica's MADE: Chapter 1 video.

The Laguna Hills Post Office has a 2-flat-8 stair set that's been getting skated since the late 1980s. The flat section is pretty long, so speed and a good ollie are required to reach the down section of the handrails. The handrails have been switched out since the original set.

Club House Academy is home to a 5-flat-3-flat-1 stair set with handrails along both sides. The handrails aren't flat however, but instead drop down a few inches in two different spots which made them difficult to skate. The handrails also end past the last step and have a curb right after the landing, but unfortunately both rails are now skate-stopped.

Shiffer Parkhttp://skately.com/library/spots/shiffer-parkFri, 23 Dec 2016 18:25:32 +0000Shiffer Park

Shiffer Park was home to a bump in the walkway that was located next to a small dirt gap. The bump had a good little kick to it and could easily send you over a trash can placed in the gap. Unfortunately the bump has been smoothed out for some time now. The park also has a large 4 stair, but that's also been ruined when the park placed grass around the landing area.

The Fullerton yellow ledge is actually a loading dock with a yellow metal edge. Located behind a local business, this ledge/loading dock is on a slight decline which makes it easy to get onto, but gradually gets higher as it progresses. The ledge originally had a straight shot at it, but the business has since installed a small ramp and guard rail which is somewhat in the way.

Fort Moore Pioneer Memorial is home to a bench/ledge with a gap out and down 2 stairs. The spot doesn't offer much in the way of run-up, so you'll need to run, jump on your board and set up pretty quickly. There also isn't much in the way of a landing before rolling into the nearby dirt.
