Roll on: Check out these skate shops near BART

You see them, you dodge them, you envy them: Skateboarders carve around Bay Area streets with that air of freedom that soccer moms and suits dream of. Supporting all that city meandering and skate park experimentation, skate shops serve up so much more than just gear for those devoted to four mini wheels; many double as art galleries and hubs for DIY community events and music. And if you’re interested in catching stares instead of airs, trendy attire for skate style is always available alongside the board accoutrements.

Outfitting skaters with parts from veteran labels and up-and-coming brands, these shops within walking reach of BART stations (and even faster via skateboard) will help you or your favorite skater hone that complex kick flip, tail slide, nose grind or whatever combo trick is on the agenda. Get off BART and get ready to roll.
