    BITD he did a lot of big gaps/ollies etc, like the ollie over the railing to flat shot by wig for his interview. i think it was the gonz gap stack where he fucked his ankle that made him move toward smaller stuff

    Which gap is this?

    also Baggot St is done is it not? I imagine there would be some big heel combo's across that one nowadays.

    its still there, just has stoppers on the run up
    it can still be skated though (i think)
    that said - that gap in particular got rinsed anyway with various heads at the top of their game - not that much left to do there
