San Diego, CA
I've been going to Wavelines for a very long time now. They have everything for skating, snowboarding, and surfing. Their clothes are a bit less expensive than other shops around the area (K5 for example). The workers are really nice and friendly and they are always down to help. Usually at surf shops I feel like the employees feel they are better than me, but not here. I recommend becoming a member for 5 bucks, and they send you a postcard three times a year about their sales and, you always get a member price when you go in.
