Whether you’re a pro or newbie skater, you’re going to need the right gear. These six Brooklyn skate shops will hook you up with the best boards, shoes, and accessories, with some places even offering classes and in-house ramps.


Skate Brooklyn (Park Slope)
Skate Brooklyn is a snow– and skateboard shop stocked with gear and apparel. The staff is extremely helpful, patient, and willing to answer all of your skating and snowboarding questions — making it a great place to come if you’re a beginner. Skate Brooklyn also hosts bus trips up to the mountains during the winter, holds skateboarding lessons for kids and adults, and has its own skate ramp in the back of the store.
