Where is the very first spot ?

That is place de la republique in paris
[close]

Skated there a few times from 2004-2006 and it was always so fun and good times.

Were you skating the OG version of the plaza? Current iteration was built in 2013.

Yeah I guess so. I quit skating around 2008 and didnt start again until a bit ago, so I missed all of that change.
ok thanks

What kinda food/budget?

For cheap eats can't beat https://www.chefberliner.fr/ they are skaters and also doing Kebabs at Wall St. I haven't been in ages but https://www.ninkasi.fr/ was great also, there is several locations around town. As with Ninkasi it's been ages but loved https://www.facebook.com/cosycornerlyon/ every time I ate there.
This place also was good and cheap: https://twoamigos.fr/

I will try to think of some other places as the day goes on. Can ask mates also if you let me know what your looking for.

When there we went to Le petit glouton and vieux Lyon.
First one was good for sure, I have vague memories about the second one cos I was drunk as fuck.
Still good I guess.

Cheers bud. I also tried that kebab that you posted. Well worth the hype thanks

Ended up chilling on the river at night drinking and getting stoned with locals.

Great city I'll be back.

I'm in Cornillon now. Moving to Barcelona in a week. Can't wait.

Looks like I'll be in Paris from July 13 - Aug 5. I'll be staying in La Defense - dog sitting for someone - which looks like it's probably not the most exciting area but well connected enough? Haven't read through this whole thread yet but assuming spot/park recommendations have probably already been dropped on page 1-2.

If any pals are around, would be stoked to meet up and go skate.

Don't trip about being in La Défense, it's super well connected to downtown Paris with the metro (ride isn't too short but also not too long) and most importantly, although it's no longer what it used to be 10, 20 years ago La Défense is basically ten square kilometers of spots, it's its own microcosm and full of nooks and crannies with all kinds of skatable stuff ranging from nugs you've definitely seen in videos (although a lot of them are gone now) to the most obscure piss corner. For a skateboarder it's basically akin to staying in Créteil or Ivry, you'll be alright.

(Anyone know if people still skate literally inside the mall on rainy Sundays there? Mega group sessions used to go down there with Fabien Le Toullec and all the usual Dôme heads, flatground lines for day then hit the four stair, but now I think this one underground parking lot with ledges nearby has replaced it as the go-to over the years).

Took note of your dates just in case but honestly am completely unable to predict the next time I'll be in Paris right now. Either way, hope you enjoy!
