Checked out the longboards at a Zumiez in Chicago. I fell in love. If only it wasn't snowing out I would be in heaven! <3

pleeeease support a local skate shop. zumiez is terrible and does nothing to support the community. I went there once, and never again, the employees didn't even know how to grip a board -.-
@Jlukasik I second this. Local always comes first.
My local skate shop isn't the greatest. Their longboards are crappy and they dont know a thing about them. We're in Chicago for the weekend so I was just taking a peek. The staff there was really nice, they knew their stuff. Every store is different I guess haha(:
@EmilySalzsieder go check out shred shop at 3801 Oakton St, Skokie, IL 60076 see if whoever your with can take you there, it's huge and local to Chicago.
My first board came from Zumiez but that's only because our local skate shop only sells skateboards.
