skateboard shop in the Philippines

October 28, 2007 11:38am CST
Hey! anyone who knows a better provincial Skate Shop?! particularly here in Laguna? It's awful to think that there are many Filipino skateboard enthusiasts that really find it hard to buy parts (original / branded parts) & clothes too, because there's only a few sk8 stores in the country, worst is only in the Metro! Sk8ers like me sometimes stop skateboarding only because of difficulty in finding the right shops with the right parts & clothes. I sometimes prefer buying online ( but it takes a few months before you receive the items, & the worst part is the shipping fee, it's the same price with the item you purchased (double!) Whoa!!! & when it comes to clothing, I better go to Ukay-ukay but it's really hard to find the right size & sometimes the right color... Anyone who agree with me?!?!? I hope someone can see this and respond... Thanks!

I'm from Laguna too.. I often end up buying generic decks and Grip tapes at Malls like Festvial in Alabang. The rest would either be bought from other skaters I play with or buy them online at if there are some any. Its really hard to find ones and even more troubling if your dealer doesn't show up. I only do C.O.D.s since the pictures posted on might not be the actual item and at the meet up, we could always decline on buying if we suspect the item being in bad condition. On clothing, I really don't need brands but I prefer being comfortable with what I wear and if it doesn't get in the way when I ollie and stuff, 'cause sometimes, if the pants are too loose, it'll drag by the knees and make it difficult to execute certain movements.
