The skater and boarder style has become hugely popular, even among those who have never stood on a board, and Coastline has all the stylish threads to take you from the elements to the streets. Outerwear for hitting the slopes comes in a variety of colours and patterns by trendsetting designers like Burton and 686, while après-ski clothing by Volcom and Matrix is popular. Other cool streetwear brands popular among skateboarders, surfers and those imitating the look include Circa, Element, Quicksilver and Billabong. Comfort and durability is key when outfitting athletes, so you can be sure you’re getting high-quality, high-performance clothes.
Choice Gear for All Levels
The first step to becoming proficient on your board of choice is to get set up with some choice gear. Coastline boasts an extensive collection of top-of-the-line boards for all levels of play. In the surf department, you’ll find boards by about a dozen different suppliers, as well as all the accompanying gear like wetsuits for West Coast winter surf. On the skate side of the shop, all the big brands are represented and there’s an entire wall of funky shoes only available at skate shops. In the winter, the shop is taken over by an array of colourful and stylish snowboards, boots and bindings by an exclusive set of manufactures like Burton, Forum and Rome.
