Just pm'd you

Anyone ever get hassled by the Moroccans down at Born? Or anywhere else in the city.

Had a few of them give me shit today at lunch time at Born plaza.
[close]

I been living close to Raval/Born my whole live and I never get robbed/hassled. Just try to not leave stuff around and just ingnore them with a "no tengo, lo siento"

Thanks I will

I made the mistake of speaking English after some broken Spanish.

Check with maps but I'm 99% sure that it's on this park, there's also good ledges on the top zone

what up pals, longtime slap member here... in a couple weeks, first time barcelona visitor. it's a family trip, not a skate one, but you know i'm bringing my board... wanted to check for any recommendations re: the most recent/up to date maps out there (i've seen a couple earlier in this topic but not sure how comprehensive/up to date they still are)

gonna be staying near the Arc de Triomf... kind of near the zoo? let me know any read on that general area..

and any read on skating spots alone? i'm not necessarily worried about the cops as much as not sure which areas may be sketchy and to what degree

any other thoughts on dos/don'ts re skate tourism there also appreciated.. looking forward to finally skating there after 20-plus years seeing these spots in vids

If you're staying near the Zoo the Born Skate Plaza is just there. Probably the hottest spot right now, small but everything is marble.

Picnic DIY is also really close to arc del triomf, the place is nice but the floor is rough. After the session you can swim on the beach.

The closest shop is Al Carrer, they are legit and they are willing to help. There's also another shop called roots.

The most updated map is probably the Shinner app, you filter by the type of spot you're looking for.

Don't worry about the cops and sketchy zones, Barcelona it's secure. I wouldn't recommend leaving personal belongings on any bag, but just this!

Enjoy Barcelona, it's an amazing place. If you have any other question let me know!

There is a healthy amount of dodgy cunts around though.

I hope that guy was ok

I'm just after leaving there after skating for the afternoon. Business as usual really. Maybe a bit more empty.

Iím going to be here from Dec 25th-Jan 10th, so stoked. Will restaurants be open on Christmas?

Any of yíall swim in the sea all year round, or is that just crazy? Iím a pretty avid swimmer and the internet tells me itíll be about 57F with air temp around 58F around that time, def not saying thatís warm, but it doesnít sound totally horrible either (?). Thereís a New Years swim at Sant Sebastia beach Iím gonna hit regardless.

Going to check out Valencia for a few days as well.

The restaurants will be open but I recommend you to reserve somewhere because they're quite full the 25th, the 26th is also another Christmas Bank Holiday called San Esteban. I would say that the water in December is cold but not freezing as it's on January or February.

Good choice with Valencia, I made a quick skate trip and was really fun.

I'll be in Barcelona 4-9 October for work.

Hope for a clear weather so that I can bring my cruiser and witness the spots in the evenings or at least Saturday.

Pals, welcome to link up. I'm curious to hear local stories and share some skate banter.

Marula Club and Jamboree (on the afternoons). Both have pretty solid Jazz / Black music live music on the regs, plus they work as a club as well later in the night (Marula's the place if you want to party to some good funk/soul/rap. Night time Jamboree is a different animal, but the concerts they have in the afternoon are really good)

PS: used to live in BCN for the past twelve years but recently moved back to my hometown, so I'm afraid no linking up for me but feel free to DM for any other music or skating questions you might have about the city. Cheers!

I was going to plan a trip for early next year but I am easily riddled with travel guilt as most places I would like to go, locals would also love to leave. Which countries/cities do locals actually like and feel comfortable in these days?

Are some of the regular Macba guys homeless? A lot of them seem strung out.

Saw a hilarious argument today from some of the regular dudes about who was more homeless.

Final thing I heard was " Your Swedish, white AND HOMELESS"

The ultimate burn

The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.
