Have you also asked yourself where the strange skid marks on some of the city’s benches, railings and walls come from!? We went to the core of Luxembourg’s skater scene to find the answer. At “Olliewood Skateshop“ in Luxembourg-city, we met not only enthusiastic skaters but also enthusiastic sellers. Dan, Vampy, Yves and Yannik of course know all of Luxembourg’s skating hotspots, but they also know all about current skating products and their matching accessories.
At the start, most skaters are focused on the design of their board. No wonder then that the walls of Olliwood’s skate shop are completely covered with boards, evoking the charm of a street art gallery. Dan and his team know from experience, however, that cool designs can only win you the beauty contest in a skate park. That’s why their advice is focused on all the technical details of skate- and longboards; the best board width (whether from Element, Polar or Plan B), the coating for optimum shoe grip, and what trucks, bearings and wheels to choose.
And to look the part, either in the skate park or on the road, Olliewood offers a vast range of shoes (Vans,Nike SB, DC shoes,….) and clothes (Krew, Element Volcom,…). Another store opened in Esch-Sur-Alzette, 51 Rue Dicks. So, when will you take up skateboarding?
