Local Longboards opened their doors in St Petersburg just one year ago last week but they’ve quickly put themselves on the map as the go-to spot for longboard gear and Bustin Boards on the Gulf Coast.
Owners Travis Hise and Jon Stine started the shop on Central Ave in downtown St. Pete to showcase their own line of handmade longboards made from reclaimed wood but they’ve they have grown into a full-service skateshop, carrying an ever-evolving assortment of longboard and skateboard products for skaters of all types. Their shop is a work of artistic craftsmanship with custom-built wood fixtures, funky displays and tons and tons of skateboards. Travis says that customers from all over Florida travel to their shop for the largest selection in the region and to check out the products first-hand—there’s still nothing quite like getting into a store and feeling a board in your hands before you buy it.
Local is a full-service Bustin dealer with one of the best assortments of Bustin on the east coast, with something for every style of skating from mini-cruisers to freeride boards. So, if you’re in the area stop by to say what’s up to Travis and the crew at Local. They’ve got the 2015 lineup in stock, including the Shrike and the full new Fire & Water NY Surf Series.
Congrats guys on one great year in the books and we wish you many more to come! Local Longboards is true to their name—now go support your local shop today, whoever that is. And if you don’t see Bustin there, tell them that you want to see it there soon!
