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:


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:


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!

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.
