The manual pad, often referred to as a wheelie pad, can be used much like a curb. However, manual pads are often too shallow to be able to slide or grind properly. That’s why they’re more suitable for practicing your wheelie combinations.
One of the first spots you will come across when skating in Barcelona is “Parallel”. The yellow space is easy to spot with its smooth surface, manual pads, curbs and benches. Even for professional skaters, this is an absolute “must-skate spot”.
