We’ll forgive Brooklyn Projects for taking its name from the lesser coast, but only because it’s got one of our favorite arrays of skateboards and gear this side of the 405. Look for kicks by Nike SB and New Balance, tees and such by Obey and Rebel8, and decks for all occasions. If you aren’t a hard-core skater or sneakerhead, don’t be intimidated—the shop has a reputation for ultra-friendly service, so even those who don’t know a longboard from a shortboard will be able to find their perfect match.
