Skater HQ was one of the very first stores that stocked our scooters in Australia 9 years ago and continue to have a great range in store today. They're a premium stockist who love the product just as much as we do. We got the chance to chat to owner Bill and ask him a few questions about his stores.
1. Tell us a bit about your store - Skater HQ?
Skater HQ started in 1991. Our point of difference in the skate world is that we love all forms of rolling sports; Skateboarding, Inline Skating, Rollerskating and of course Scooter Riding. We have a reputation for having the coolest new toys and we're proud of that.
2. What's your favourite thing about Micro?
What we love most about Micro is the customer focus as a company. Much like ourselves Micro works to make sure that their products are of a high quality and their customers are well looked after they purchase them. The 2 year warranty and the constant attention to product development keeps Micro a very special product in the market. We have stocked Micro Scooters since the dawn of the folding scooter. We loved the idea when we first saw it and we still love it.
3. What's your local tip for where to go?
There are many great places to ride and but the most popular for good reason is the Cycle/Skate path along Manly Beach. It's a favourite for many of the residents of the Northern Beaches of Sydney with the waves and the sunshine, you can't beat it. Manly also offers many great places to grab a bite or do some shopping.
4. Where is a great place to scoot?
Another secret of the Sydney scoot scene is the Sydney City waterfront, Circular quay and Barangaroo. These fabulous areas now connect to the wonderful Darling Harbour making a smooth flat and entertaining ride for the whole family. If you are feeling energetic you can also continue to Blackwattle Bay and Canada Bay which are all now smooth and excellent for scooting.
5. What's your guilty pleasure?
I love rolling all over Sydney City especially in the evenings It's such a beautiful city.
6. Tell us 3 things you want to tick off your bucket list?
1. To ride a Micro Black Ice scooter in deep powder snow.
2. To do a lap of Australia on a motorcycle.
3. To see the Northern Lights from the top of Sweden.
