Skateboards are a great transportation alternative to cars, which are notoriously difficult to balance on at high speeds or to grind down the high school's surplus of handrails. Get a smooth, safe ride with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of skate gear and services at the Purple Skunk Board Shop on Geary Boulevard.
The Purple Skunk is a sanctuary for skateboarders with an expansive selection of decks, hardware, and accessories. To help wheelers choose their low rider from the plethora of options, the Purple Skunk offers a “try before you buy” demo rack so customers can get some air under their wheels before purchasing. If nothing suits your style, the Purple Skunk also offers a build-your-own board option to customize your fully assembled skate setup with the latest trucks, wheels, and Tony Hawk bobble heads. The friendly, attentive staff are happy to help new boarders find the right first ride and can suggest various safety equipment and comprehensive insurance policies. In addition to boarding equipment, the Purple Skunk also carries discs from INNOVA Disc Golf as well as custom saucers for fearless flingers that may want to test their skills at the nearby Golden Gate Park course.
