The board doctors at Modern Skate and Surf ready thrill seekers for a winter of slope conquering with complete tune-ups of skis and snowboards. To start, experts shed boards of restrictive layers by uprooting old wax from various surfaces. After a meticulous scraping removes harmful remnants, such as dirt and snowman cigar butts, planks head under the knife to have edges sharpened to an ideal wind-slicing symmetry. Inconsistencies that could otherwise cause wobbling and unsteady runs are then smoothed out during a process of edge de-tuning. Finally, techs lather boards with a fresh layer of wax before declaring them qualified to thwart rails and evade delinquent reindeer playing chicken.

Though Modern Skate and Surf sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Modern Skate and Surf

Modern Skate & Surf’s alternative-sports shop was founded in 1979 and has since hosted events frequented by Olympic and professional athletes—including superstar Tony Hawk—as well as earned a feature as Best Snowboard Shop in 2012 from Real Detroit Weekly. In Modern Skate Park's world-class, 60,000-square-foot Royal Oak skate park—one of the largest facilities of its kind in the US—skateboards grind across rails or glide over jumps, and inline skaters whiz over obstacles and BMX bikes hang in midair. Customers can build on their extreme-sports skills in clinics and lessons or rent out the facility for parties or high-speed chases. Committed to supporting the next generation of extreme athletes, Modern Skate Park offers discounts to students who bring in report cards sporting A’s and B’s.
