While Create Skateboards might not be your nearest skate shop, this skater-owned destination is well worth a trip to San Francisco’s SoMa district. Specializing in American-made skateboards and apparel, Create started as an online shop in 2012 but became a brick-and-mortar store in 2018. Father-son duo Chris and Jordin Martinez remain committed to their mission, even donating a portion of proceeds to endangered species conservation—so you can do good while looking fresh, too.
