Skating is certainly not just a sport anymore; it has basically become a lifestyle and its fashion plays a big part in that. And that’s exactly what Er-rol has to offer. Walking inside, you already feel the alternative, skating atmosphere. Looking around you’ll find all types of hoodies, shirts and a big amount of skating shoes. A variety of urban brands are offered such as Vans, DC and Supra. And of course, a lot of different types of skateboards and corresponding equipment can be found. Not only can you find these items in the store itself, Er-rol also has a beautiful webshop where the products can be purchased.
The owner of the store, Errol Newby, started the idea for the store in 2008. The goal was to create something alternative for the skating community within Friesland. The passion for skating didn’t come out of nowhere. Errol has been a skater for a big part of his life and used this passion to create something great. Not only has it become a wonderful store, but the employees are also very helpful and passionate about what they do.
Being located at the Voorstreek, Er-rol is located rather close to the city centre and is very accessible by bike. There are plenty of bus stops nearby but even walking from the train station does not take any longer than fifteen minutes. Er-rol is surrounded by a variety of other stores and restaurants and there’s a Jumbo supermarket five minutes away by foot. Otherwise, you are always able to visit the city centre!
Beautiful store, passionate employees, variety of great products and located in an accessible area. What else do you want? Er-rol is a great store for anything skating related and definitely recommended to give a visit!
