‘The Observatory’ in SKATE 3 Is a Real Skate Spot!

The real life Observatory

We’ve always wondered where the geniuses behind the SKATE video games got their ideas for the insane skate spots we flick our thumbs to and shred. If you’ve played SKATE 3 you’d be aware of The Observatory and you’ve probably dropped in from the University ditch and attempted the bridge gap time and time again. Well, it turns out the Observatory is a real skate spot and it’s located in the south of France.

The Observatory joins a handful of the other real spots in SKATE 3; Shecklers HQ, The Berrics, Carlsbad, El Toro and Hubba hideout.

Watch pro French skater Max Geronzi hit the gap at The Observatory in Nuit De la Glisse’s film Addicted To Life. This will get you keen to pull out the Playstation!
