21. Massachusetts: Orchard
If a cool skate event is happening in Boston, Orchard is probably behind it. Their free mini ramp keeps area skaters rolling in the dead of winter, and their shop team is a who’s-who of Boston’s skate elite, with pros like Joey Pepper, Kevin Coakley, and Jahmal Williams, plus local up-and-comers.
In addition to carrying all the brands a skater wants, Orchard produces their own line of hard- and softwoods and has done a number of creative collaborations with brands like Anti-Hero and Expedition One.
