Skate shops in Paris

Postby lurch » Fri May 29, 2009 6:01 pm

I'm going to Paris for a few days before Le Mans, am just wondering which are the skate shops worth visiting? Ideally I'd like to try some speed and/or marathon skates. (not for Le Mans necessarily - I'll take my own skates for that)

How up to date is this list, for example? And if I had to choose, say, the top two shops which would they be?

Hawaii Surf is probably the only shop you need to go to, that said I think I've bought stuff from Ootini before so those are my 2 options

I thought Ootini closed down years ago?!

But yeah, go to 'waii Surf. When it comes to skate stuff, if they don't stock it, you don't need it.

Not sure about that, it was a while back that I visited it.

I think I've been skating for 9 years and have only had 2 pairs of skates in all that time. This needs to be rectified immediately!! I was thinking that the impending Paris trip would be good time - so is Hawaii Surf still the place to go? Thanks

Hawaii yes but not in Central Paris - it's not far (in zone 2) but Nomades is easier to get to - the Sunday skate starts just outside and it's open on Sundays.

I'd stay clear of Nomadeshop and stick to Hawaiisurf... I've had a very bad experience with Nomadeshop (currently battling them to refund my money for items they didn't bother sending). Apparently their in-store service is proper shit as well..
Check out: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=38028 to read the thread I wrote on it. A lot of other people chipped in with experiences..

Moanashop is one of my clients, you can order there, it will be fine.
A detail: their English sucks :-)

About Hawaii Surf. This is an 30 years old shop with a large panel of products, certainly one of the best in Europe.
