After more than a year's work we are happy to present this book and documentary resulting from the collaboration between Go Mag, Modularestudio, Carhartt WIP and José Noro. “La Curva De La Muerte," otherwise known as “Hell Curving," has been an essential part of the history of skateboarding in Barcelona. Now that it has been torn down to construct a new skatepark, we wanted to pay homage to the spirit of this legendary part of the city.
From how Jose Noro, Dani Santos and crew came up with the idea for the skatepark, to its construction, through to the endless sessions and parties, this is the story of how a group of friends got together to change things and ended up creating one of Barcelona's quintessential spots.
You can find this book enclosed with every free copy of GO SKATEBOARDING MAG #20 in skate shops and Carhartt WIP Stores in June, 2015.
In addition to the book you can see the “Hell Curving” video documentary by Modularestudio on the GO Skateboarding and Carhartt WIP official websites as of June 8.
We would also like to invite you to the “Hell Curving" presentation event on June 5 in Barcelona!
