New on the Scene: Rolka Skateshop

POSTED IN City Life TAGS , , COMMENTS 0

It’s not every day that a new skateshop opens in Slovenia and I was really stoked to hear about Rolka opening it’s doors in Nova Gorica last week. If you’re familiar with the skateboarding scene around here then you’ve already heard the name Rolka, it was a brand of decks owned by Miha Vogrinčič back in the day and now Miha and his girlfriend Manca took a big step forward and opened a shop. What makes it a bit different is the fact that it is filled with local brands, brands we’re not used to seeing in shops. Rocking apparel, accessories and skateboards from brands like Relax Crew, Embisi, KeItRe, Frachella, Kult eyewear – we also can’t forget Rolka’s own line of sweaters and tees and as far as foreign brands reach the shop offers skate trucks from Independent, Crail and Polster, apparel from LBSTR and apparel and skateboards from Polar, being the first shop to introduce one of the highest growing skate brand to Slovenia. With December some skate shoes are about to hit the shelves, but which brand they’ll be shall remain a secret for now. One of my favourite things about the shop is the vibe that a real skate shop gives you, it’s a place where you can come to hang out, have some fun and then hit the streets. Big up to Rolka for supporting the local scene and we sure expect more awesome stuff from these guys in the future! Cheers!

Ni vsak dan, da se v Sloveniji odpre nov skejtšop, zato sem bil zelo vesel, ko sem slišal da je Rolka odprla svojo vrata v Novi Gorici prejšnji teden. Če poznate tukajšnjo skejt sceno ste že slišali za ime Rolka, firmo desk za katero je pred leti stal Miha Vogrinčič, zdaj pa sta Miha in njegova punca Manca naredila velik korak naprej in odprla svoj šop. Kar ga naredi drugačnega je dejstvo, da je poln domačih znamk, ki jih nismo vajeni videvati v trgovinah. Založen je z oblekami, dodatki in skejti znamk kot so Relax Crew, Embisi, KeItRe, Frachella, Kult Eyewear – nesmemo seveda pozabiti Rolkine kolekcije jop in majic, kar pa se tiče tujih znamk Rolka ponuja skejt podvozja Independent, Crail in Polster, obleke LBSTR in obleke ter skejte Polar, kar jih naredi prvi šop v Sloveniji, ki ponuja eno izmed najhitreje rastočih skejt znamk na svetu. Z decembrom pa na police prihajajo tudi skejt čevlji, katere znamke pa je zaenkrat še skrivnost. Meni najljubša stvar pa je vibe pravega skejtšopa kamor se lahko prideš podružiti, se malce pozabavati in potem odskejtati po ulicah. Respect Rolki za podpiranje lokalne scene in pričakujemo še več kul stvari v prihodnosti. Cheers!
