10 Iconic Skate Spots That No Longer Exist

10. ARCO Rails

Los Angeles

Downtown LA's ARCO Building was home to a set of rails that only skateboarding's elite would step to. The square rails went down the center of a 9 stair and a 17 stair that could be skated in a line like Chad Muska did in Fulfil The Dream. In Transworld's Sight Unseen, Heath Kirchart took to a larger section with two 17 stair rails in a row and ended up in a ball at the bottom of the second set after a lipslide gone wrong. The nine stair saw much more action. It was Jamie Thomas's rail of choice when getting tech. He landed a Thrasher cover with a switch lipslide, and did a 180 50-50, both seen in his Dying To Live part. Eric Koston may have the best trick on the 9 stair with a nollie backside noseblunt seen at the end of his Yeah Right part. After several failed attempts to skate stop the rails are now removed completely.
