While many skate shops have begun shifting to cater to an online crowd, Programme nails the best of both worlds by serving their far-reaching web following without sacrificing the intimate community feel of a neighborhood shop. Whether you’re a veteran skateboarder looking for new threads and shoes or a novice who needs a new, complete setup, the staff here are knowledgeable and friendly enough to get you whatever you need. Oh, and the place also happens to host awesome local punk and hardcore concerts, too.
