Thanks for visiting our skate shop. Loco is made up of a team of dedicated, passionate professionals who love to rollerblade. We have a physical high street store in Eastbourne, Sussex, near Brighton, on the sunny south coast of England where we do in-store fittings, run the website and drink ALOT of tea! Our website is one of the most highly regarded worldwide for those who want to buy skates online. We are the premier UK shop for Aggressive inline skates and 'Best UK Skate Shop' 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 according to the UK Rolling Awards.
The LocoSkates idea arose in early 2004 from the rubble left by the collapse of the late HoldNoHostage skate shop in Gosport. Proudly flying the Skater-Run flag, LocoSkates specializes in skates and everything affiliated; filling the void that fashion stores, skateboard shops and non skater-run outfits couldn’t when attempting to sell such a specialist product.
Loco was founded by long-time skater Jake Eley who continues to run the shop and website today alongside the rest of the team. Jake is best known for his committed involvement in the UK rollerblading industry, for his high profile exposure with K2 skates in the early ‘00’s, British Champion 2002 and more recently for his involvement in a bunch media projects involving rollerblading including music videos and online viral videos. Jake is also 'UK Legacy' according to the 2010 UK Rolling Awards.
Loco has been a popular resource for the core rollerblading scene due to our grasp on what’s current in rollerblading and pedantic product knowledge whilst simultaneously being popular amongst those who are new to the sport for our competitive prices, easy to use web-interface and straight-to-the-point advice.
The LocoSkates Skate-team reflects the hardcore dedication of it’s primary customer base and includes some of the world’s best skaters. Nick Lomax, Joe Atkinson, Jenna Downing, Sam Tuffnell, Leon Humphries, Elliot Stevens (and more) are a mix of pro skaters, world champions, viral superstars and local legends. All skating for Loco for the simple fact that this is the REAL THING, no gimmicks included! Check out our team pages for more on these guys and other Loco reps.
We are also involved heavily in event sponsorship, tours, contests, media, skater promotion, product manufacturing and generally setting the standard for being the most pro-active skate shop in the UK.
LocoSkates continues to build for the future with our new, bigger and better high street store and website both opening in April 2012.
Thanks to everyone who supported from the beginning. x
