Solomon here. This weeks featured retailer carrying your favorite Brooklyn longboards is Loja TopSkate of Porto Alegre, Brazil. Some of you will recognize the name as the local skate shop and sponsor of Bustin Brooklyn’s‘ Team Rider Jonas Ritcher and speedboarding phenom Douglas Dalua. Lorenzo Salcedo, who also happens to be a good friend of mine, first opened up this shop in 2009 out of his basement carrying the top performance longboards on the market.
Loja TopSkate’s reputation for carrying the best longboards and wide selection of longboard accessories has payed off in an area with abundant hills and skaters with a need for speed and has now opened a second location in the city. In Brazil? Stop by and say hello. You might even be able to get some longboard tips from some of the fastest riders on the circuit!
