A skate shop is a store that sells skateboards and skateboarding apparel.[1] When financially possible, skate shops sponsor local riders and promote skateboarding locally through skate videos and demonstrations, referred to as "demos".[2]

History[edit]

In 1962, the surf shop “Val-Surf” in Hollywood became the first skate shop when they carried the first self-produced skateboards. These boards, sold complete, featured a surfboard shape and roller skate trucks.[3]
