Of course it has some ledges, there are some gnarly stairs with spots in 45 degree angles between to ride down. Right in downtown, this offers tons of different options.

The build up to the 7 is sloped then evens out at the end helping make sure you go balanced. No one kicks you out. If you cant hang with the 7, there is also a 5 and a 4. A ledge real close on the frontside is goofy, with the backside for regular. 4 blocks south of the Santa Monica Pier
Santa Monica High School
This has it all. Stairs run from 2, 5, 7, 11 and 14. Between the stairs, the rails and the ledges knee high, there are tons of options including the rumored greek gap.
601 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405
Paul Revere Middle School
A couple fun 5 and 6 stairs and rails. The main attraction is the 12 foot high bank. There is a gap on the roof so it’s a story high. We condone this kind of behavior and are not liable.
This gap has rails accompanying it right by some grass
Right by Sepulveda/Wilshere
