49. Wisconsin: Sky High
I turned to Wisconsin’s skate website of record, WiSkate, for guidance on their state’s best shop. Webmaster Josh Ellis told me, “I would go with Sky High. It’s been open since ’88, and is 100% skateboarding. Gives back to the community majorly with free skate jams, and is a huge contributor to the Eastbrook DIY project through both fund raising and hands-on building.” Sky High also sponsors a team of absolute rippers who took home Chicago’s All City Showdown contest.
