Wallenberg High School
40 Vega St, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
Wallenberg High School is another classic SF street skating spot. The first thing you'll notice is the giant 4-set, made famous by Mark Gonzales in the classic Blind Video Days video. The 4-set is so big, each one can be skated as an individual ledge. On the other side of the school, there are benches, tables, and ledges.
Since this is a school, it's obvious best to come on weekends or after hours. The school seems pretty tolerant of skaters hanging out when there are no school events going on, as long as no one leaves a mess.

For some reason I never really got into Wallenberg. I'm not a great gap skater, and the ledges feel claustrophobic because of the angle you're forced to hit them at. I usually end up doing tricks on the super mellow "bank" to the right of the big four, or cranking out big slappies on the bottom step.
