Find out where your local skater-owned businesses are with our complete guide to skate shops, indoor skate parks and skate schools in Wales. Support your local!
Seeing as Skate Shop Day is all about supporting local, skater-owned businesses, we thought we'd try to make the process as easy as possible by setting up a (hopefully) comprehensive list of all the independent skate shops, skate parks and skate schools in Wales so you know who to throw your money at.
The number of skater-owned businesses in Wales has absolutely sky-rocketed in the last couple of years with loads of people across the country strapping on their entrepreneur hats and venturing into the unforgiving world of skater-owned businesses. From the rise of the now ubiquitous skate schools to new indoor skate parks, it's been an absolute pleasant watching the Welsh scene grow so keep up the good work everyone involved! Clearly everyone's been doing something right.
Naturally, we've probably accidentally forgotten to include some people so apologies in advance if we've missed you out. Feel free to drop us a message on Instagram or via more traditional means so we can add you to the list.
