Local shops don’t only have you’re back when you quickly need a new kingpin (and remove the old one) but mean much more to the skate community. You can always take a seat on their couch and talk about your problems. Different to similar professionals they don’t charge 150€/hour, but rather give you a discount on stuff that didn’t have a margin in the first place. The Corona Virus is a huge challenge for the retail business and during these uncertain times we must stick together and support each other. Since we want y’all to stay at home you probably won’t get to skate as much. But we looked for stuff that could make quarantine time a bit more fun and at the same time helps assure your local skate shop will still be in business by the time all the madness is over.
Little things come a long way.
HERE ARE FURTHER SUGGESTIONS FROM SKATE SHOPS AROUND THE WORLD:
CHOOSE YOUR COUNTRY
These are just some entertaining suggestions and also just some shops since we simply can’t include every single one out there. You know best what you need. In the end everything counts.
If you don’t have money to spend, don’t spend it.
But if you do, think about where to spend it and consider who needs it most these days.

We’ll get through this together!
