19. Maine: Long’s Board Shop
I asked Damon Thorley at Deluxe about skate shops in Maine, and he immediately brought up Long’s Board Shop, saying, “Tom and Sarah are in it for all the right reasons and keep the scene in Maine going strong.”
Long’s throws events regularly and rallies people together to shovel snow from the local skatepark in winter. These events, plus supporting a team of local rippers, is all part of Long’s mission to create a strong skate community. Their manifesto says “LBS is a family skate shop, run by a family, for the skate family."
