Wallenberg

Last update:


Wallenberg. The spot that needs no introduction. When you think of the lyrics to the song “I left my heart in San Francisco”, you might want to add “and left a whole lot of blood, sweat, tears and some skin at Wallenburg.” This legendary four block has been a fixture in skateboarding for years. And at 22 feet 6 inches long, is the epitome of intimidating. The Gonz really opened our minds to what’s possible when he ollied it back in 1991. And with change being the only constant, more and more took up the gauntlet and tried something down the big, long 4 block.

Wallenberg Andrew Reynolds 1

With the floodgates opened by Gonz’s ollie, we saw skateboarding’s ABD list extended in increasingly quick succession with Diego Bucchieri’s backside 180, Frank Gerwer’s kickflip, Danny Gonzalez’s kickflip melon and more. We’ve compiled a list of ABDs below and you can peep our video compilation of those very tricks above. It’s 2015, and as “Shane Goes”, Wallenberg has now been nollie back heeled. Gotta love skateboarding’s progression!

Consider the following skateboarding’s roll of honor:

– Video Days (1991): ollie by Mark Gonzales
– backside 180 by Diego Bucchieri
– 411: kickflip by Frank Gerwer
– Transworld’s “The Reason” (1999): kickflip melon by Danny Gonzalez

Foch, Lyon

Last update:


Foch is located in Lyon’s city center. And as you can see here on the map, it’s surrounded by some pretty famous spots, including (probably) the most popular one outside of the city: Hotel de Ville (HdV). When you’re at HdV you just need to cross the river and from the bridge you’ll see this:

mini

We all call it ‘Foch’ cause that’s the name of the closest subway station.

The one thing that instantly surprises everyone the first time they reach this spot is the graffiti. Now remember you’re in the city center of a French city with a lot of history so typically speaking, graffiti is not a familiar part of the landscape. But here it’s different. I remember growing up there (I had the chance to spend few years in a street right next to the quay) and seeing different street artists every week (if not every day).

There is also a mini skatepark down the quay. They recently changed it but here is what the new one looks like:

park

With the mini ramp on the top and the street area down there, you can be sure that you’ll always have somone on the bridge watching you skate. Back when I was growing up, I loved the atmosphere there, and I literally learned to skate there. I was there everyday after school with my homies (and sometimes during lunch as well cause our school wasn’t too far away). I mean, what’s better than a good 30min mini session before heading back to school?

The Foch mini ramp is really popular in Lyon and let’s say skaters are super lucky to have a mini ramp to practice on right in the ciy’s center with a cool atmosphere and a great view. Regular events are also held there like the last Jam Session Supra x Wall Street (here’s a clip from the app).

But what drives people really crazy is definitely the hubba! Man this hubba is huge. And you have a 5 meter drop on one side so you’ve got to admit it’s pretty scary. And to top it off, the bend in the middle is quite hard to handle if you want to grind, slide or roll the whole length. The hubba itself is around 40 cm wide.

Finally, and thanks to Cliche (Jeremie Daclin has always been super active in the scene!) the spot is still evolving, with new features being added.

Here is Adrien Coillard, utilizing one of the newer additions to the spot. Peep our edit of the best tricks that have gone down at Foch above, and let us know what you think!

Bercy, Paris

Last update:

You might have heard of the name “Bercy” being thrown around as one of those legendary European spots on the list of every visiting American pro, or even remember Andrew Reynold’s  superhuman frontside flip down the Bercy 4 block (and his even more ridiculous backside heel down the 5). Bercy has seen some very significant moments in skateboarding history and deserves its place in skateboarding’s rich cultural history. Historically, Bercy is primarily a wine warehousing neighborhood.

In 1982, the City launched a vast program to revitalize the east of Paris, starting with the official opening in early 1984 of the Bercy Arena (originally known as ‘Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy’), which is primarily an indoor sports arena and concert hall. But as skateboarders, it’s this aspect of Bercy’s architecture that specifically interests us.

Palais_Omnisports_de_Paris-Bercy

The Arena itself is shaped like a pyramid with its walls covered with grass. Remember when Ali, Bastien and Arto butt slid down the grass wall in the Flip ‘Sorry’ intro (see 1:12 in the link below).

This feature offered the perfect playground for the inner street skater inside each of us. I went to Bercy the first time I went skating in Paris, and I was hyped! Although there were a lot of people, due to the size of the place you were still able to enjoy it and also have enough space to try stuff.

While the Bercy ledges are world famous and frankly pretty insane, it was really the blocks (4 then 5) that attracted  pros from all around the world.

Unfortunately, the Bercy complex is now truly part of skateboarding’s history books in a very literal sense because the area is being redeveloped but should reopen at the end of the year. Treasure every spot now, as you’ll never know when they will become a ghost of skateboarding’s seasons past!
