** Important Shipping Notice **

Important Shipping Notice

Due to recent US customs changes, all orders are currently being shipped from Canada. If you are ordering from outside of Canada, please be aware that you are responsible for any duties or taxes on purchased goods.

Ordinarily, rollerblades and accessories are duty free to the US but the final decision is up to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. In all other countries, you can check with your local customs agency to obtain information on importing goods ordered from our web site.

Most items we sell are made in China and will be labelled as either "roller skates" or "roller skate accessories" with the country of origin being China.  This terminology is used because that is what the items are labelled in the tarrif schedules.

Brake pads in stock

Brake Pads are Back in Stock!

After a long delay, we once again have brake pads back in stock.  These are genuine Hypno Skate brand brake pads that will fit any model of Hypno Skates. 

 If you're looking for replacement wheels for your skates, we have plenty of 76 mm wheels on sale for $1.99 each.  That's a savings of $4.00 per wheel.  These are the original wheels that ship with our Vario skates but will fit any brand of roller blade that takes 76 mm wheels.

Anti-Spam Law in Effect

Anti-Spam Law in Effect

On July 1, 2014, Canada's Anti-Spam law (CASL) came into effect. In an effort to fight spam, the new law requires specific consent to be on our mailing list. As such, if you want to receive updates from us about products and sales, in the future, you must resubscribe to our newsletter. You can subscribe here: Hypno News

If you'd like to learn more about CASL, you can check out Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation page.

Store Wide Close-Out Sale
Store Wide Close-Out Sale
Sadly, the time has come to close-out the Hypno Skates North American store. We've had a great time supplying our skates and servicing our amazing customers but unfortunately, we have to bring it to an end.  So we're selling off all our stock at discounts from 40% - 80% or more!
For example: Hypno Vario Skates are 40% off, Hypno Half-Moon Bags and Hypno Holster Bags are only $5.00 each! Most Wheels are only $2.99 and 16 Pack Wheel Bearings start at $9.95.
Browse the store and help yourself to the savings while they last, because once they're gone, they're gone.
We're back

We're back from our family vacation and processing orders on schedule once again.  It's pretty hot on the West Coast.  Hope everyone's having a great summer and enjoying beautiful weather!

Away for a bit.

Important Shipping Notice - Please Read. 

Just a note to let you know that our family is taking a short vacation from Aug 1 - 8, 2012.  Any orders placed by July 30 will be shipped.  Orders or inquiries received from July 31 - Aug 8 will be delayed until we return and I'll answer your messages then too.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year  to all our wonderful customers!

We sincerely hope that this will be a great year for all and that you will have find many hours to get away and enjoy skating in the outdoors for your own health and happiness in 2012!

Store Closed


From September 1, 2011 - October 3, 2011 we will not be shipping orders. Do not place an order during this time as it will not be shipped until October.

We are a small home-based distributor, we are not that manufacturer (they are in Italy).  Our family will be away for the month of September on a European trip and so there is no one available to ship orders during this time.  I hope this doesn't cause too much of an inconvenience and we will be back on October 3 to begin shipping orders and answering emails once again.

See you then.

Important Shipping Delay Information
Shipping Delay
Shipping for new orders will be delayed until Tuesday, July 27.  

We're going on a road trip!  Well, a short one anyways.  I'm taking my daughter to a music festival in Enumclaw, WA and since it's her and I that process all the orders, there will be a delay in shipping while we're gone.
Normal shipping will resume on Tuesday, July 27.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we'll get to your order as soon as we return.  Promise!
Shipping Delay
We're going on a family vacation! Our family is taking a two week road trip down the U.S. West Coast but that means that while we're gone, there won't be anyone to ship orders.
The store will remain open and orders can be placed as normal, but any orders placed after Sunday, April 19 will not be shipped until Monday, May 4 when we've returned.
Regular shipping will resume on Monday, May 4.

"Free Shipping" Update for Canada
Due to higher shipping costs in Canada, we have had to increase the purchase requirement from $29 to $39 for orders of parts or accessories to qualify for free shipping.  Unfortunately, postage costs in Canada are significantly higher than in the U.S.
There has been no change to the $29 order requirement for parts or accessories, in the U.S.
Some restrictions apply for both countries, so please check our Special Offers section
for full details.
