Barcelona has it all- banks, ledges, beers for a euro and big 'ol booties... everywhere. It's a skate paradise, but more than that, it's the lifestyle that makes Barcelona great. People say its blown out now, and this is true of some spots- Sants is busted and the magical Fondo, sadly, no more. Still, it's worth making the trip over for Paral-lel alone, which has the best manual pads you will ever skate. And after the session, you can buy a street beer and watch the long legs walk by.
The best manual pads
you will ever skate.
Seriously, you will not find a better set of manual
pads than these. Parallel gets extra points for its
central location in downtown Barc.
Get cultured at this Skate Haven.
MACBA has had a few facelifts over the years, with the Big Four becoming a Big Three. It's smooth ledges
and the sheer amount of people who meet here make it a great spot to meet up.
and beers- Paradise.
Three long, perfect (of course) marble ledges,
and smooth flatground make this spot pretty good.
The abundant street beers make it great.
but they left us a ledge.
Fondo has banks that look like they are straight
out of a skatepark. While most of them have been skateproofed, they were nice enough to leave a few open.
Built for the Olympics,
These Epic Spots live on.
The Forum was built for the 1992 Summer Olympics,
and is now full of deserted epic spots.
Whether you want a bank, a ledge, or a gap- Forum has it.
