35. Ohio: West Side Skates
Since 1995, West Side Skates has been 100% skater-owned-and-operated in Lakewood, Ohio. In addition to selling skateboards and related goods, the shop’s mini ramp provides refuge for skaters seeking to escape Ohio’s harsh winter weather. The shop also donates money towards an effort to get a new skatepark in Lakewood, by hosting video premieres and art shows in the space.
