There are tons of iconic skate spots spread out all over the world but the one that stands out the most to us has got to be Carlsbad Gap. From short documentaries, skate contest and even featured in video games, this huge gap in a Carlsbad high school can take the award for some of the gnarliest tricks that have gone down in skateboard history. Check out the epic On Video Magazine short documentary below to know a little more about why this gap is soo iconic.
After the On Video short doc the gap was still being skated and might we say, it got destroyed by every single pro in the skate game.
And not only did it get destroyed by every skateboarder out there but it literally got destroyed as well. On February 23, 2012 the famous Carlsbad Gap was put to sleep but not before chucking down one last ollie.
With soo many tricks that have gone down it would take too long to gather them all up. Below is a list of our top 5 tricks (in no particular order) done down this beast.
- Switch Big Flip - Trevor McClung
- Tre Flip Benihana - Josh Kasper
- Front 360 - Jeremy Wray
