Skateboarding is a healthy activity for body and mind, unless it involves skating while reading baseball star Jose Bautista's first romance novel. Improve your boarding experience with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel, footwear, accessories, and extreme sports gear at Ballistic Skate & Snow.
Ballistic Skate & Snow outfits customers with a gallery of name-brand skate and snowboard decks, clothing, footwear, and accessories. Peruse lengthy racks standing at attention against exposed brick walls for a rainbow of saucy graphic tees ($20+), luring out tops from brands such as Element and Volcom with a snack of fresh dryer lint. Adidas, DC, and Vans shoes in various hues ($50+) lounge on bare wood shelves while entertaining an extended family of fabric or synthetic Sanuk flip-flops ($40+). Customers can teach art appreciation to uncultured sidewalks with graphic-designed professional skateboard decks ($60+) and guard arms from attacks by jealous breezes with a range of hoodies ($60+). Mid-shopping entertainment, such as occasional sets from live DJs, accompanies clothes and gear in Ballistic's industrial space.
