Le Dome, Palais de Tokyo, Paris

Last update:

Le Dome is the name that Paris skaters gave to the spot in front of Le Palais de Tokyo, a modern and contemporary art museum. Calling this spot an icon of the Paris street skating scene is probably a gross understatement. Which is why we decided to make this little edit featuring Jereme Rogers, Vincent Bressol, Arto Saari, Eric Koston, Rick McCrank, Chris Cole, Colt Cannon, Alex Carolino, Rodrigo Teixeira, Thibaud Fradin, Flo Marfaing, Max Geronzi and Mark Suciu.

When you think of Le Dome what probably comes to mind is the 3-flat-3 double set and the pairs of huge hubbas down the stairs. But let’s also not forget that since marble has the sweetest pop, the marble ground there makes the spot also really epic for flatground. This spot became a must visit spot for visiting pros in the late 90s and early 2000s, and some really heavy tricks went down there. When you visit the spot, the sheer size of the hubba alone is certain to intimidate anyone attempting anything here, so it was so crazy to see Flo actually put down two back-to-back tricks(a backside noseslide followed by a front tail) as part of a line on both hubbas and the 3-flat-3. Flo shut down the spot for sure!!! Eric Koston’s backside 5-0(in those eS Koston 3s no less!) was straight up gnarly!! Another classic memory was from the Transworld Videoradio era, with Chad Muska hyping the crowd up as Chris Cole skated the hubba. Remember Brian Anderson’s two trick line here in Yeah Right? That was one stylish bigflip.

(hmm it’s also interesting to note that one of the best street spots in Paris is in front of a contemporary art museum like in Barcelona w/ the MACBA)

es-mccrank-tsm-jan10I first went to Le Dome when I was 13 years old. To get hyped before each session, I would watch the eS Menikmati video, and this played a huge part in building my memories of this spot and those sessions. Back then you would often meet the world’s best pros there; and I met Bastien Salabanzi there quite a few times too.

Today, the spot is in pretty bad shape given the march of time. But it’s still always a great spot to start a session because you’ll always find someone to skate with down there and it remains a go to meet up spot.

eS Footwear used to be super active at this spot too, and even held the french final of their eS game of skate here in 2009.

Peep our edit of some the heaviest tricks at Le Dome and recognize the amazing progression that has gone down at this spot.
