Skateboarding started in Southern California by surfers who wanted to ride the concrete waves of the streets. Since those early days, skate shops have been a cultural hub, introducing customers to music, fresh styles and new ideas. Los Angeles has hundreds of spots and skate parks and thousands of skaters, so naturally there are a lot of cool skate shops. These are some of the most iconic.
