This may not come as a surprise to folks here, but France is pretty much the center of the skating universe - both inline (aka “Rollerblades”) and quads (aka “regular skates”).
Every week in Paris, for example, there are two big skate events: the Pari Roller on Friday night, and the more casual Rollers et Coquillage on Sunday afternoons. I did the Sunday skate with my wife and kids a few years ago, and it was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. I recommend it! (Short video here; lots of words here)
Do you skate? What are some words/slang/idioms one should know?
