Roller skating was recently voted the most satisfying way to get from point A to point B, just ahead of driving a car and calling point B and persuading it to come closer. Get some A-to-B gear with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward roller derby, skating supplies, and apparel at Cruz Skate Shop on Mission Street.
Savvy staff at Cruz Skate Shop enables the fine arts of roller derby and skateboarding by purveying a hybrid equipment roster of gear and apparel. Feet can fly across indoor rinks, hardwood floors, and beds of sulfurous coals inside Riedell Diablo roller skates, composed of a red synthetic boot over a lightweight plate and Radar Evo indoor wheels ($149). Decorative skateboard decks elevate the simple board from function to fashion with brands such as Blood Wizard, Rasa Libre, and Baker ($35–$60), and wheel riders can parade their dominance over beast by wearing the Cruz Goat Lord hoodie ($35). Safety seekers, meanwhile, can take cover behind a host of protective apparatuses, including helmets ($30+), knee pads ($20+), and teammates.
