8. China Banks – San Francisco, California
Like a lot of spots on this list, San Francisco’s China Banks have been skated for generations. They’re steep and unforgiving, with big and small benches that can serve as channels to ollie or just ride over and a ledge on top that, if you’re Pat Duffy, you might be able to backside tailslide. Just don’t forget about the 30-foot drop over the side.
