The Best Skateboard Shops in Toronto
The best skateboard shops in Toronto are places that will fix your board mishaps, show you possible setups, and provide a safe haven for all things boarding-related. Note: despite the title, this list has both skate and longboard shops but we know both activities aren't the same.
Here are the best skateboard shops in Toronto.
This Dundas West shop near Dunbat Skatepark stocks board, wheel, truck and other skate hardware brands that you won't find in other stores. Over the years, they've earned a reputation as a trusted destination shop for skaters. While beginners are welcome, this shop is excellent for intermediate and experienced skaters.
This small, well-curated Kensington Market shop is where longboarding enthusiasts can find boards from Rayne and Skateistan, as well as a variety of clothing and other accessories. Despite being a longboard-centric shop, they do blur the lines by carrying traditional skate-specific products as well.
This shop near Spadina and Richmond has a major focus on shoes and clothing, which means it carries less hard goods than the average skate shop. Brands like Polar and Adidas can be found here, but it's more than just the products that differentiate this store. It's also a great social space for people to network and chat about skate culture.
This Queen West mainstay sells skateboards, longboards, snowboards and cruisers. They also have a ton of clothing as well as sneakers from brands like Lakai, Nike, Supra and Vans. The sheer size of this four-room space can be a bit overwhelming, but there's no denying it's got one of the best selections of boards and accessories in the city.
This unique Leaside shop lets you build your own decks using their tools and raw materials. It's definitely the place to go if you're looking to customize your own longboard, skateboard or whatever board you choose to make. They offer lots of woodworking opportunities for students, including summer camps and free school demos.
