Skating in Barcelona Help

Aug 06, 2008 @ 15:06
I might be taking a trip up there with my pops, it's kind of a random thing and he'll be at meetings all day everyday so I can go out and skate. I was wondering if anybody knew where any of the good spots are located around the city? I'm just there for fun, not even bringing a cam so I'm not looking for any huge sets or anything, just some fun places to skate and create.

New Spot: Everybody call it Newspot I guess because is new, well any way here you will find a plaza with wood benches on the right and left with little grass gardens in between, pretty neat!

El Paralelo: This spot is off the hook, here you will find benches, long ledges(To do manuals every possible way or whatever you feel like), and short ledges as well, if you ever get to visit Barcelona this spot should definitely be in your list.

Los Porchus: I'm sure you guys have seen this place before in the magazines. I guess the builders who made this place tried to make a skatepark or something like it, but they came up with a bunch of waves one after another with a fence right on the end. This is the place where Geoff Rowley did a f/s flip over the fence, pretty damn long f/s flip!

Torres y Valles: This spot is very fun, here you will find a round medium-low handrail with a bank off the side, you can jump over it into the bank or just hit the rail, you decide.

Macba: Everybody knows this place it's in every skatemagazine, here you will find 4 huge stairs, a nice plaza and ledges all over, definitely a paradise, this one also should be in your list .
