We have brutal skate shops in my area, they have nothing to do with skateboards, snowboards, and nothing for surfing. All of these shops have "surf, skate, snow" in their names and only offer clothing, no comps, contests, demo days, no sponsorships, community support. We have three parks in the area, all of which not one shop shed a dime for, or attended any town council meetings. This is a horrible way to represent the sport and culture.

My question to you guys is what would make the best skate shop for riders of all ages and skill levels.

Live free, skate hard.

Free maintenance section in the shop. Lots of young kids who skate don't know much on how to keep good care of their boards or how to fix something. Just having a cost-free service in the shop for this would be so dope and so helpful. It would attract a lot of people.

Same in both cities I've lived in over the past few years. I think 2 out of what must be at least a half dozen 'skate/snow' shops actually carry boards here. And now all the clothes aren't even high quality like it used to be, everything's made in Mexico and collars are separating in a month, fabrics are thinner, etc...

What makes a great skateshop is a shop owned and ran by skateboarders. Theres nothing worse than a skateshop that is ran by some joe schmoe fuck face who thinks he knows what hes talking about, but has no damn clue. Another thing is the right product. Although its sometimes hard to get the products that you may want in your shop. Still get what counts if you can. Last but not least, chill. The shop is somewhere you go to hang out, maybe drink a couple of beers talk about whats new and spots that are found. Just a good chill spot.

Very true.  Knowledgeable and helpful people with good, positive attitudes are a must.  With that, everything else should just fall into place.
