In-store skate fittings by appointment
We are now taking 1-2 appointments per day for in store skate fittings in the Vancouver store. We are generally available from 10am-2pm Sunday-Friday. We can be fairly flexible with some notice though.
Please email us to arrange your spot. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Masks are Mandatory for skate fittings or for anyone spending an extended period of time in the shop. We can provide if you don't have one.
Pick-ups at the door (Vancouver)
You can select PICK UP at checkout and we'll arrange a pick up time with you.
Please wait until you hear from us that the order is ready before heading to the store.
More Shop Stuff
Our store is still technically closed to the public. If we have an appointment or pickup, we only allow one customer in at a time. So you may have to wait outside for awhile.
Have questions on the products? Need a blade installed into a shaft? Marsblade install? Reach out, we're happy to help figure it out pretty quick!
Can't add the item you need to the cart? Have any other shipping questions? Holler and we'll give you a shout back (Usually by email)
Thank you for your continued support!
Older updates, still relevant info.

Minor update... We are still closed to in-store shopping. Orders are shipping daily and we are starting to try out pick-up in the Vancouver Shop for online orders.
All orders must be placed online and paid before visiting the store. Contact us if you need any help placing an order. Wait until we reach out to confirm pick up time. We are not working regular hours at this time.

Our utmost appreciation goes out to everyone who has chosen us to gear up for outdoor hockey! It is very exciting to see all these players discovering the joy of skating outside!
We've been hearing about a few crashes and burns as skaters are adjusting to a variety of new challenges. Take it slow!
Ice hockey is played on a perfectly flat and smooth surface. The streets are not this way, so there are a lot of new muscles and boundaries to learn to stay safe.
Tips for a sustainably fun time outside:
- -Wear a helmet and pads
- -Find smooth and flat surfaces
- -AVOID HILLS
- -Do not go a faster speed than you can stop at.
- -Watch Shop Task instructional videos on YouTube to become a great inline skater: Shop Task YouTube (Click here)
Good luck! Any questions let us know.
Sorry we are not offering any pickups at this time.
We are still in the shop almost daily to ship. Deliveries around the Lower Mainland are happening next day of order being placed.
We are now aware that Canada Post has been absolutely slammed with a higher than Christmas level of packages. All orders are delayed, but still making progress. We still trust them to deliver your packages as economically and efficiently as possible. We do not guarantee any shipping speeds, especially during these times. Please be patient.
Abandoned "No Rush" shipment
Our No Rush / Flat Rate shipment has been removed as a shipping option because it was taking uncomfortably long. We have lowered our rates on Expedited shipping to make it as cheap as we can at this time. It's a couple bucks extra but this will ensure you are receiving your skates with as few delays as possible.

DEAR FELLOW SKATERS, FRIENDS, & MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY:
FOR THE TIME BEING, WE WILL ONLY BE OPERATING ONLINE DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF THE CURRENT SITUATION. WE ARE MAKING THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO KEEP OUR RETAIL STORES CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BUT WE WILL CONTINUE SHIPPING ORDERS AS USUAL.
OUR EMPLOYEES WILL REMAIN AVAILABLE DURING OUR NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS TO ANSWER LIVE CHAT AND EMAILS. WE WILL BE HERE TO HELP YOU SELECT THE RIGHT PRODUCTS AND GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE ONLINE CHECK-OUT PROCESS.
AS A SMALL BUSINESS THAT RELIES ON LOCAL FOOT TRAFFIC TO KEEP THINGS ROLLING, WE GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AT WWW.COASTHOCKEYSHOP.COM.
WE HOPE EVERYONE STAYS SAFE DURING THIS TIME AND WE THANK YOU FOR CONTINUING TO ROLLERBLADE (BECAUSE WE KNOW IT’S THE BEST TOOL FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING SINCE THE EARLY 90’S)!
