Skateboard Shops
  • Sadly no where now, possibly in Activ. An over priced yet friendly shop.
  • Head to Skate Pharmacy in Margate, best place around and they know their stuff.
  • obviously u go to board walk or active
  • you have to go look in sport shops such as landal skie and argos cataloge caters for them now in the sports section
  • active
  • Boardwalk, Cheriton Place, and Activ next to Marrins Bookshop
  • Active ~ Does allsorts, like Quicksilver, Animal and Roxy
  • Go to ACTIVE in the top part of Folkestone Highstreet. They sell Quicksilver, Animal and many more.
  • theres a new-ish shop called boardwalk near sainsburys, thats quite good but staff are gay, activs ok nowadays but a little expensive, renhams sells some good skate stuff, but i recommend Wrekless in Ashford, really good staff, know what there on about, good range of everything, reasonable priced, general good skateshop
  • activ
  • use wreckless in trahford, they got a good range of decks and will try and get in what u want if u ask nicely!!
  • Sainsburys wont in town centre wont close down, as the Sainsburys HQ has already decided not to!! Also the park farm sainsburys could only be built on the condition that the town centre store stays open!!
  • Actually sainsburys will not be outta business!! they are gonna be open for AT LEAST 3 YEARS, if ASDA DOES GET ITS PLANNING PERMISSION, if it doesn't then SAINSBURYS will STAY OPEN! They are already spending load of money on the shop!! The Asda planning permission didnt get submitted when it was supposed to be! bear in mind that they would have to compete with the other Supermarkets in folkestone (2 x Sainsburys, Safeway (now Morrisons - one of asdas big competitors on price) tesco and Iceland. the chances are they will goto Dover as the only supermarkets there is kwiksave and iceland.
  • we probably wont be able to skate in sainsburys much longer anyway cos they are gonna build a massive asda literally next door, which means sainsburys is gonna be outta business!! best to find somewhere else now!
  • Activ (Sandgate road) - Bloody Expensive
  • Majestrates 2 set and 4 set. Bouverie rd west at the top, decent ish 6 set. be quick coz u get chucked off well quick Sainsburys car park 1st floor Radnor park fountain
  • Aktiv I spose
  • Good place on Sandgate Road - good deals to be had
  • Well i wouldn't call it a skate shop but it does that kinda stuff. Active is right near Blockbusters and sells Animal,Quicksilver and stuff like that. They are more surf and bikes than skateing though.
