12. Southbank – London, England
Southbank is the place that springs to mind when North American skaters think of London. In the early ‘90s, Curtis McCann showed us what skating the undercroft spot—the heart of skating in London since the ‘70s—was all about in Underworld Element’s 1-800-SkyPager. Gentrification may soon put an end to the Southbank, but it won’t go out without a fight.
