How is fondo these days?

A guy i know said it's been made 'skateproof'.

That would seriously suck...

it's basically a skateplaza now. a sign states that its allowed to skate there, but it's prohibited to ride bmx or scooters there. there are handrails on both stairsets, a polejam, 2 flatrails. it's fun to skate,

my favourite city to skate, have been 5 times including 2 weeks ago for 10 days. its a dream, such a good scene out there. hanging out at macba everyday and night. taking the metro to almost any stop and finding sick spots. can buy boards from dudes for 10 euros beer for 1 euro, girls everywhere
its a dream

The brick drop curb it's at Vallcarca, the top part of the city, the nearest metro station it's Penitents in the L3 Line (the green one).

Here's the google maps link to it: http://goo.gl/maps/EzsOs

Curb used to be super chunky but some locals angle ironed it recently.

Amazing hill bombing opportunities from that spot to the downtown!

So im going to Barca next month and will be bringing my VX. Has anyone got any suggestions of spots that are not generally the usual "go to" barca spots like macba, parallel etc as im way more interested in just exploring the city rather than getting pulled in by the magnet of bigger spots.

have anyone skated this? it's behind the fences so is it risky to go there or are there some doors open?

I haven't skated that but I have skated another spot that required hopping a fence. We got kicked out but the result was the same as the US. They just told us to leave. Some caveats here that are important:

1. I was with a group of 90% spanish speakers so I am sure that made the situation better.
2. Some cops really hate skating in BCN. These were not those types, so I am not sure how other cops will react.

I say throw caution to the wind and go for it.

Just came back from barca. Itbwas awesome but the weather was not that great. I had a few days of rain and well there werent skati g that many people. MACBA was awesome of course but i must say it looks really blown out these days. I go there every few years and it was pretty blown. Edge were super rounded, tiles were hanging loose etc... Nevertheless, im not complaining, it was awesome. And its an epic spot.

The big four was now a big three. Got in a fight with some drugged out fucks while we were skating there. Some dude tried to jack our shit... S be careful back there.

The ledges at the harbor, if you walk down la rambla, were still in decent shape. No one was skating while i was there and i was there for more than 3 hours. Tourists were whining, but even the cops were cool about it and said that we could skate. Probably because they saw that we were with a really small group and that we were not fucking around...

Para lel was cool, but it was also packed with sketchy dudes... A  local explained that a lot of people were hustling because of the extremely bad economy...

Didnt go to fondo which sucks...


But we found and Amazing spot at santa suzanna, one hour away from barca...

Ill post pics tomorrow.

Places to eat if your vegeteraian: juicy jones, maoz and veggie garden. Amazing stuff.

Ill throw my latest-- second week of August.

Hit up SANTS area and skated that black bank roll-in thing. Super fun. Right on that road, there are these little curbs with a metal coating that fucking grind like glass. Hit SANTS for a minute but most of the benches had people on them waiting for transportation. Still Cool to see.

Took a day off, hit the beach with my wife, drank and Puffed.

Next day. Took a Taxi to Forum and had a blast skating that Black pyramid thing. Then hit the white ledges down the way. That wall/bank is steep as fuck but super fun. Went to those metal ledges down the next hill and they grinded like glass as well.

Went last August as well. Hit MACBA which was fun. Fondo was sick too. That bank on the way there from the station that Ricky has some tricks on in Static II is sick as hell.

Still want to go back again sometime.

Spot I was talking about, located in santa suzanna:

The banks seem steep but get more mellow if you walk a little.
Amazing, it's smooth concrete with a ruff texture. Definitely slides if you wax it well. And it grinds if put half a waxblock on there...

Flying from Toronto with Transat, can you bring your board as a carry-on ?

Bit hard to answer that one. Depends on where you are from and what you want...

Are you from Europe and can hop on a Ryanair flight? Then that one is quite cheap and you can catch a flight for less than 100 ?. Are you from the U.S. or anywhere else overseas it get's pretty expensive. Do you want to rent an apartment, go for a hostel or a hotel? You can even go camping over there if that's what you prefer. You can check airbnb to check some prices. Food... Dunno, depends where and what you wanna eat.

So it can range anywhere between some hundred ? and a couple of thousend ?.

Maybe you should give some more detail or do some investigation yourself. Checking prices for flights and accomodation isn't that hard...
