It was Jeremy Wray and his epic skating at the Southern California school in Plan B’s 1994 video ‘Second Hand Smoke’ that put the gap in the spotlight and ensured its iconic status. While the school also featured an array of ledges, stairs, benches and gaps, it was the larger of the two gaps that provided a sure-fire route to skating fame, if you went big enough.
