Maybe a little cheesy and not 100% skate related, but I just found this video and it really makes me want to go:

i lived there for 3 months and went out past 10 all the time.  never saw any sketchy shit the whole time really.  got an apartment off of www.loquo.com.  there's so much to be said about barcelona, but if anyone ever tells you that it's blown out, they are the biggest fucking idiots in the world.  it's scary how much shit there is to skate that you've never seen in videos.

yeah, Mollet del Valles, there is a pretty big skatepark in that town too, this banks are 1 min away from the Mollet-Santa Rosa train station. If you go there by train, DO NOT cross the train rails, they get mad at you and give you a 300 euros ticket.

I went on two trips and those rolling bumps were the only spot I could never get the location to. I always wanted to go.

And the only advice I could give to anyone going to Barcelona is do not stay in the city center the whole time - take the Metro way out, or even better take a train for an hour in any direction. You will be surprised at what you find.

Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona aka Autonomous University of Barcelona located where I live in Cerdanyola del Valles but outside downtown, I recommend you to take the "FGC" train in Barcelona and stop in "Universitat Autonoma". Right outside the station you'll be in the main campus plaza. Ask for the tennis courts or the "SAF gym" for the bumps. Across the university you will find perfect 8 stair handrails in the entrance of B and C buildings, a round grinded ledge, a marble manny pad and stupid circle flatbars in front of the humanities library ( they made dissapear a concrete wavy manny pad that was featured in a blueprint video). I'll post pics soon.

Thanks Barcelona CEO!! :)

Also, will the security at the College give tickets for skating there or it just a matter of getting kick out pretty fast?

I stayed at this place when I was out there a couple of years ago. It's a bit outside of the city, but is super chill and has rad views of the mountains. The trains out there stop earlyish, but I think there are still night busses that you can take back...so not the best place if you're looking to hit the bars or skate all night, but great if you want to skate all day and chill at night. They have a kitchen so you can make your own food to save $$, and a patio you can chill on till 11pm or so.

For skating: I had the raddest times just cruising around, finding spots. Sants sucks now, you can only really skate MACBA after 6-7pm (though it's still cool as a warm-up spot)...my favorite times were just cruising around, meeting some dude from a random country, and skating around together finding spots and shredding. All the skaters there are super friendly and awesome...the raddest culture. I saw people pickpocketed a couple of times on the subway, but if you know how to keep your shit together in a typical city, you're fine. Just don't be stupid and you're good. I ended up going out with my phone in a front pocket, some cash in my jeans' coin pocket (nobody's pickpocketing that shit), and a copy of my passport in a ziploc in my other front pocket. Back pockets are for maps and water bottles and other shit you can lose.

Barcelona is the RADDEST for skating. SF is the only city I've had more fun in.

OH! Also, if you're into tattoos, check out LTW, in an alley off La Rambla. I got some work done by Javier Rodriguez while I was there, and it's so good. And all the dudes there were super cool.

They said don't go out after 10 PM because you will just sleep in until 3 PM the next day.  That city does not sleep.  I didn't have any experiences that made me think it was dangerous to be outside, in fact I skated from Winkle's to MACBA on the first night at around 3 AM in my pajamas.  There were easily 100 people skating, drinking and just hanging out.  I could tell you a million stories about every day and night there, none of them were sketchy at all.  Use common sense like you would in any city environment, and you shouldn't have any trouble at all.  The city is so skateboard accessible it's stupid.  You'll stumble upon so many perfect spots if you just roam.  Go! Explore! Have fun!

Yeah, just lay low and be friendly to the cops, they'll be friendly to you. I've been there 5 times and I skated from 8 am to 10 pm, never had ANY problems with cops. Ever.

We always were with a pretty huge click and the main guy that organises the trips is a great skater and he lived a in Barcelona. He knows all the spots, knows the language, knows the places to eat etc...

The only problem we had was with some drunk pimp that was mad because we wouldn't fuck any whores from him... SERIOUSLY.
Shit was awesome though...

I'm going back with my girlfriend in August after a 3 year break from skating... Curious if everything is still where it was.

Hey bros. went to bcn last year in August with my lady. Stayed in gotic area near la rambla. Hit up macba on a Sunday morning and it was the shit. Ground was the shit, ledges were rounded, but who gives a fuck. Hit some banks on the way to the beach and chilled with some pints of Estrella. Scoped some strange sets of boobs and had a blast. Went to fondo the next day and boy, is that place harder to skate then I would have imagined. Skated some cuttyy spots, but never really made it to the other hot spots, as I was only there for 3days. Going back in August this year and I'm am fucking psyched!!!!!!!!!!

One question. Could someone point me to the best/uncluttered hill bombs. I saw a ton near fondo, but was pussed out/jet lag foggy.
