Good suggestions on here, especially on where to find Cannabis ! Would love an updated spot guide, seems like alot of the popular spots where I would go first are a bust like uni and macba.

Macba isn't a bust, go there at like 4pm and buy some estrella from the dudes walking around. Find a spot to chill and skate some flat/ if you're lucky find a nice spainard lady. Go lurk Badalona also.

DON'T do that^. They hide those beers under the piss-soaked tiles in the piss-soaked, rat infested dirt. Just go around the corner and buy yourself a few at a store. Those guys are so annoying. Same guy asking you every 2 minutes.

If you like a crowd, sure, visit Macba in the day/evening. If you want to try and skate the ledge up top (it's pretty beat), go around 11am. The ground up top is amazing.

BRING WALKING SHOES. Like, good runners or something - and change into your skate shoes at the spots. My feet couldn't handle the walking. There's a lot of walking. The most common sidewalks are a tile that's very rough. In fact - rent a bike. If I ever go back, I'm using a bike or renting a car.

Have fun - there's infinite spots.

The talk about walking shoes is soooo real. Each of the 4 times i went to Barca i had some foot issue caused by too much walking around. Blisters, verrucas, swallen ankles you name it.

The metro is great. Every stop has spots around it. You'll still be walking lots though, just aheads up. I'm definitely trying a bicycles next time I go.

I dunno if it still exiting, but ten years ago, you got the Chesterfiel cigarette club, who was a kind of a "private" club made by the same name cigarette company, you got a lounge inside, free wifi, free drinks, free video games, free computer, and of course free cigarette.
the entrance was tricky, free entrance, but you got to know someone who is in the club already to get in.
Some locals skaters got me in, I guess locals should know about it. I'm not a smoker, but it was a cool place to chill.

these things are in the barceloneta area. 14 carrer del gas.
right next to the torre de les aigues (tower). for the board
on the plane as in in the cabin i am pretty sceptical. skate
boards are classified as a dull weapon, you have to drop it
as bulky luggage which comes at extra costs all of the time.
easiest way is to try to fit the skateboard into your drop off
luggage bag/suitcase whatever, if possible. have fun vhspal.

This time last year I flew to BCN, then Berlin, then Copenhagen, then Rome, then back to BCN, then home. I think I checked my board on the way over but the other dudes I was with didn't, and then while I was out there we carried our boards onto every single flight and not a single airport or airline had issues with it besides the Italians, who weren't about letting us through security with the boards. This super sweet airline employee basically ushered us to the security person she knew was chill about it and we ended up getting through. Everyone else was super mellow about it.

About Barceloneta, look around while you're there. On the other side of the little park that the more famous banks are on are another set of banks that are way gnarlier but also very fun. That whole zone has a ton of spots anyways.

Fwiw, I've brought a board on Delta or United and the like many times without ever having a problem.  I would expect to NOT be able to bring a board onto a budget airline like Ryanair etc...

Man, walking shoes wouldíve been so clutch. My feet/legs/back ended up being so beat after a month, then horrible after 2 months. Maybe I was just soft. But everything you do kinda involves walking, even chilling. Itís good overall, but be ready

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

The basketball hip is the only one which is a bust but the other three are good to session all day.

depends on preference.

around raval there is three good shops:

amigos, it is a skate shop, nice people and good stock
hey ho! has nice shop decks and a bit more of a timeless core skate shop vibe.
rufus is the cool/hype one, no idea why

all of them are good and within 2 blocks of each other

FTC is a 2 minute walk/skate from Macba. Julio(?) is super nice. Only skate shop I spent any time in.
