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.
Josè Noro was born in Barcelona in 1977 and was skating for Carhartt WIP for years. He was a central figure when it came to building skate parks and creating a skateboarding scene in Barcelona/ Spain back in the days. In 2015, José still lives in Barcelona and still skates.
