French Fred – Barcelona w/Flip 2001

ETB is headed to Spain for spring break! The hype levels have been slowly simmering since we bought tickets but they are reaching an all time high. Everything that has to do with Barcelona just looks different when I watch footage. I find myself looking at tiny cracks in the tile, the bevel on a ledge, the traffic on the street.

Flip’s Sorry is the video that brainwashed me into skateboarding for life and essentially built the image of what I thought skateboarding could be. So much of that video was filmed in Europe and Barcelona that they didn’t even seem like real places. They might as well be The Shire or Modor.

Well now we are making our pilgrimage to MACBA and all the holy sites we have seen for years. Here is Fred capturing a golden moment in skateboarding to get us hyped for our own trip.
