The Carlsbad Gap, with it’s many cracks and uphill landing, is a legendary spot. Carlsbad High School has been a stomping ground for pro’s since 1992 when it first appeared in videos. Kris Markovich was the first to step to the gap with a flip trick, beginning the 20 year annihilation. Since then, pros like Jeremy Wray, Tom Penny, Chris Cole, Andrew Reynolds, and countless others have made their mark with every trick imaginable. It was only fitting that Markovich would be the last to ollie the gap on February 23rd, 2012, when the spot was completely demolished. Enjoy this mix of every trick to go down at Carlsbad.
