    I don't think it's a good idea sharing spots like that. People who arn't good enough to handle the spots could thrash themselfs and get the cops out there. Or blow spots by just acting like fools. It's better to try to get in touch with locals if you're going somewhere and ask if they'll show you around. Or just explore the place for yourself.

    If I catch somebody publicizing my local spots in Van, there will be hell to pay.

    I'm sure as hell not publicly sharing my spots online! I'll take people to there, but they aren't going online. There needs to be a sense of community and identity and publicly posting spots kills that.

    EDIT: And if you've posted Detroit-area spots on there, I strongly urge you to take them down.

    It could be good for good hills and stuff though, not necessarily secret spots

    RELAX.... If they spots are so "secret" then I'm pretty sure that the people that skate them will have the common sense not to put them up. Not that it really matters.... we can see how much that website is used based on the whole 35 spots in the whole US that are tagged.

    I also noticed this. Can't be that commonly used of a website.

    To find really steep slide hills I look up local or state wide biking forums. And they usually have hills marked or talked about that are considered "crazy". Some of them are, Breakneck road in NJ

    i really had not considered that all of mine just became private. also this is a new site. though i do still like the idea for sledding hills ski runs etc. lots of insightful responses thank you


    also if you go to share spots theres a thing that tells you what the grade is and shows street views, scouting hills just got easy

    I was just going to to say

    "there already is a longboard spot finder"

    its called streetview on google maps covering most all public roads now or at least enough to give you an idea

    A good topography map will give you a better idea about the corners though

    usually on youtube theres a badass moto rider or cyclist who likes to bomb the same runs we do and they too have go pros... I used this method in Los Gatos and found some of the gnarest... off the chart... crazy roads

    Hills out here are more slide hills than anything else (we've got a fun run if you ride a sketchy setup), but we've got some rad garages and an awesome permission-granted cemetery. We have fun no doubt. Not to mention all the MSU girls on campus.
