Carlsbad Gap Torn Down

Carlsbad Gap

When the Carlsbad High School was built in 1957 no one thought the eleven step stair set on the Southern side of the campus would become one of the world’s most challenging and recognizable skate spots. In 2006 the Carlsbad Unified School District approved a decision to demolish the school in order to build a new school.  It wasn’t until 2008 that rumors drifted around within the skateboarding community about the Carlsbad Gap demolition.   Fast forward to Thursday February 23rd, 2012 and a skateboarding landmark has its last day.  How long will it be before a skate plaza duplicates the Carlsbad Gap?
