Bustin Shop of the Week: Burning Spider Stoke Company – Kansas City, Missouri

Posted by on May 5, 2015 in Mike Stories, Shop of the Week

Before Burning Spider Stokle Company was a shop, we founded a group on Facebook to service the local community.  At the time we called it Burning Spider, but as more riders where found out about the group we wanted to make it easier for locals to find, so we changed the name to Kansas City Longboard Community.  Now at 700+ riders it is a pretty rad place to talk skateboards and keep as many of the locals informed of what is going on.  Kansas City itself covers a huge 316 Square mile area with skating varying from skateparks, to short steep technical .25 mile to 1 mile long downhill runs right in the middle of the city, to nature trails like the Indian Creek Trail that stretches 25.5 miles currently (more gets added on every year), and is host to many group distance pushes.

As the community solidified and grew we needed a place to get our longboard equipment.  None of the local shops carried the depth of product and knowledge that a varied terrain city needed.  We had a couple of corporate stores, and a dedicated street skate shop that wasn’t super stoked on ordering longboard gear.  So we have moved to a store front right in the heart of one of the raddest places in city to skate and live.  Located in the heart of the 39th Street District we are Kansas City’s Longboard Headquarters.

Our riders organize sessions in the community and there is very seldom a Sunday that doesn’t go by that we aren’t hosting some kind of event or group ride.
