Dillion Aguilar

We started our first day in Montreal at this slanted bank ledge. The spot is great because it’s only 20 feet from a little skatepark and it’s a perfect place to get warmed up. Dillion Aguilar backside nosegrinded the quarter pipe at the skatepark a few times and with ease took it over to the bank ledge.

Montreal has it’s own group of rippers. Josh Clark and JS Lapierre showed up at the spot and both got the Americans hyped with a front blunt and a no comply tailslide off the end.

The Big O - Montreal

Montreal has a bunch of interesting spots. One of which is the famous Olympic Stadium—better known as “The Big O.” This complex, which was built for the 1976 Olympics, cost a considerable amount of money but produced just as many spots. The Big O is like an amusement park for skateboarders. The unique architecture was designed by Roger Taillibert who had no idea how incredible he was making the stadium for skateboarding. Besides having the tallest inclined tower in the world, The Big O has enough skate spots to last an entire day and you rarely get kicked out.

This Metro stop has a crazy ledge into a bank. Surrounded by sharp steep banks, this ledge spot is a dream for both filmers and photographers. Although sometimes one man’s visual stimulus can be another man’s almost broken arm. Both Dillion and Josh nailed some 5-0 into the bank just before dark. We returned the following day for some better light and Dillion ended up slamming very hard on his arm.

Our tour guides, Josh Clark and Brian Shannon, took us to this over rail into a bank spot outside of the city. The spot is really cool and is right in front of a day care. The kids seemed to love the new entertainment and had their faces smooshed against the window. The adult running the place didn’t seem to care at all that we were skating. Josh, having skated the spot before, redid a frontside flip he did almost a year before but didn’t film. Both Malto and Dillon were working on their tricks before we got a gnarly kick out.

Ryan Lovell with Security

Ryan Lovell showing some cool security guards what Malto just did. They were impressed.

The final day we spent in Montreal was just as epic as the days prior. Most of our time was spent skating this block stage spot in the art district of Montreal. What made the spot cooler than it already was all the locals who were there skating it. The vibe was really positive and everyone was having a good time. Malto threw down some tricks even though he was super sore from the days before. It’s always really cool when someone can forget about being hurt and get pumped to skate a spot because the people around them are killing it. Enter the etnies Malto & Tony Hawk: SHRED Giveaway

  3. That was epic! And all of Canada doesn't speak french, only Quebec. I've been to Montreal once and I only liked it because most people can't understand me there. I don't skateboard but Malto is beast!

  19. Being from Montreal, I'm stoked to see Malto kill some local spots. And pure french quebecers are ignorant as ****, as you can see from that fat basterd just being a damn idiot. Big-O is one amazing place to have so much fun

  28. I can't believe I'm on the etnies website lol. That's me with the blue adidas. I'm a skater and I was working across the street at an ice cream place. I finish my shift and see Malto and the gang. I headed over, lent them a wrench for some stuff, watched Josh pull a fs flip and the others trying stuff. Eventually all this chaos starts happening. So crazy. The owner was completely out of his mind.

  32. That guy was a douche, but too bad that the kids looking out the window of the daycare by this spot had to see a bunch of skaters yelling "fuck you fuck you fuck you" at a fat old man and pushing him into the fence with raised fists. No wonder he was on the defensive AND offensive play, he had a handful of dudes making him sweat. It only takes once.

    Posted: 5 years ago,
  33. ha, i like the scene when the fat old guy grabs the plate and about four young, highly- motivated skaters had their boards in fight-position... dammn, FUCK YOU

  35. Frontside flip...????... shuvit sexchange???

    Posted: 5 years ago,
  36. sayin that all quebecers are ignorant is just showing us that you are. Generalizing is just stupid.
    Anyways sick stuff out there props.

    Posted: 5 years ago,
  37. You guys removed the fight section

  38. @ Jared: I was thinking the exact same thing. Frontside flips require the board to actually flip......not trying to knock Malto at all, just the guy writing the captions. Use your eyes silly. Reminds me of the Muska frontside flip.......or uh, again, what jared said.
