Barcelona

Barcelona had helped produce skaters like former World Industries and Expedition-One rider Enrique Lorenzo and Chocolate and Lakai pro Jesus Fernandez long before it became a center of skateboarding. But in the early ‘00s, as North American cities were becoming more difficult to skate, Barcelona became the destination of choice for pros in search of bust-free spots where they could gather clips. As a result, places like Sants and MACBA, both of which boast ledges, stairs, and more, became staples of American videos for half a decade.
