Seems some people have taken up the “Big-O Skate spot Cause” … actually quite a few people. Look for potential reports in the mirror/hour/ctv/cbc, the french language media and much more over the next few days. It’s also getting press far from Montréal. It’s really is funny how few people in Montréal realize how famous that place is and how many people have played skate tourist there from all corners of the globe.
“Designed as an entrance for torch-bearing athletes for the ?76 Olympics, The Big O is a tunnel with perfectly tight transitioned walls that open up into one of the best “natural” miniramps on earth. It took the initiative of local skaters to make the spot what it is today. It?s got a good vibe. One of the more fun things to ever skate.”
