Foch, Lyon

Last update:


Foch is located in Lyon’s city center. And as you can see here on the map, it’s surrounded by some pretty famous spots, including (probably) the most popular one outside of the city: Hotel de Ville (HdV). When you’re at HdV you just need to cross the river and from the bridge you’ll see this:

mini

We all call it ‘Foch’ cause that’s the name of the closest subway station.

The one thing that instantly surprises everyone the first time they reach this spot is the graffiti. Now remember you’re in the city center of a French city with a lot of history so typically speaking, graffiti is not a familiar part of the landscape. But here it’s different. I remember growing up there (I had the chance to spend few years in a street right next to the quay) and seeing different street artists every week (if not every day).

There is also a mini skatepark down the quay. They recently changed it but here is what the new one looks like:

park

With the mini ramp on the top and the street area down there, you can be sure that you’ll always have somone on the bridge watching you skate. Back when I was growing up, I loved the atmosphere there, and I literally learned to skate there. I was there everyday after school with my homies (and sometimes during lunch as well cause our school wasn’t too far away). I mean, what’s better than a good 30min mini session before heading back to school?

The Foch mini ramp is really popular in Lyon and let’s say skaters are super lucky to have a mini ramp to practice on right in the ciy’s center with a cool atmosphere and a great view. Regular events are also held there like the last Jam Session Supra x Wall Street (here’s a clip from the app).

But what drives people really crazy is definitely the hubba! Man this hubba is huge. And you have a 5 meter drop on one side so you’ve got to admit it’s pretty scary. And to top it off, the bend in the middle is quite hard to handle if you want to grind, slide or roll the whole length. The hubba itself is around 40 cm wide.

Finally, and thanks to Cliche (Jeremie Daclin has always been super active in the scene!) the spot is still evolving, with new features being added.

Here is Adrien Coillard, utilizing one of the newer additions to the spot. Peep our edit of the best tricks that have gone down at Foch above, and let us know what you think!
