Macba. Ink on Canvas. 11" x 17".
Barcelona has been a skate mecca for quite some time now. The central spot is MACBA, or Barcelona Museum Of Contemporary Art. There are ledges out front and there was a big four out back. Jamie Thomas got things going on the big four around 1998 with a mellon grab, half-cab, and a kickflip in his Misled Youth part. After that it became the spot for visiting pros to huck their go-to tricks. Danny Way even took a break from the vert ramp to spin a backside 360 down the famous four block in The DC Video. In the summer of 2009, a redesign of the area saw the big four become a big three with a slanted landing. Macba remains one of the busiest and most visited skate spots in Barcelona, and maybe even the whole world.
