Best Local Board Shop

The Boardroom

Since 1995, the red building on State and 28th streets has housed the Boardroom, Boise's top pick of local board shops. Along with a rad collection of snowboards, skateboards and wakeboards, as well as lifestyle outerwear and apparel, the Boardroom hosts several events for those who shred—from rail jams to ramp comps.

2nd Place: PrestigeThe owners of Prestige Skateshop remember when Rhodes Park was nothing but a few ad hoc skateboard ramps, refrigerators and anything else good for grinding. In conjunction with the Boise Skateboard Association, they spent nearly a decade working for a Rhodes Park renovation. Thanks to a $1.25 million donation from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, their vision became a reality in summer 2016. There's no better place to get geared up than Prestige—only a few blocks from the better-than-ever skatepark.

3rd Place: Outdoor ExchangeThe winter season for Outdoor Exchange officially began on Sept. 1, which means the downtown gear consignment shop is loaded down with dozens of used snowboards, boots and bindings at an accessible price. Gear up and get out.
