Keep it Local: Davao Skate Shops

Way back the 80's and 90's, even the early 2000's Davao skaters only have access to quality equipment if they have relatives abroad that send them balik bayan boxes during Christmas or if you have tons of money to order stuff online. Today, we are thankful that many skate shops have opened, making it easier for many skaters to replace any broken trucks, decks and wheels or even purchasing a new set up. Listed below are some of the local skate shops that you can visit:

5Tabz. I must admit that this is one of my favorite shops down south. I even purchased my first set up here. Anyways, located in EC business center in Recto (formerly Claveria St.), this shop is a great stop for deals and discounts. Though not as popular as the others further down the list, this shop is locally owned making it fit for local skaters. In addition, they also have longboard parts that you can check out.You can visit their site here


Kurv Industries. Opened last 2009 and now in front of J.P. Laurel Avenue, Kurv is also a great place to shop for skateboarding goods. They sell the basic stuff like trucks, wheels, bearing and even some signature apparel. Not only that they cater to skateboarding, they also have longboards and surf goods from board shorts to wax.


Sk8Rock Skateshop. One of the most popular online shops in Davao city, Sk8rock is home to quality skate goods ranging from decks to bearing and even apparel. Shoes, skate bags and sun glasses can all be found here. Though price range may go up from 1000 php or more, you can't deny that the shop supplies good quality stuff. They have an active multiply account here.

WeLegendary Davao. Though WeLegendary has its roots in Manila, the Davao crowd welcomed the shop with open arms. The shop is currently sponsoring two local pro skaters Marc Calvo and Alex Ompoy which we skaters down south are proud to have. The shop supplies quality skate goods and apparel, including shirts from Stay Stooned (local) and many more. You can check out more of their blog here.

If you ever need anything, you can check out some of these shops both online and in their physical stores around Davao City. They have made skateboarding affordable and accessible for many of us. We should give our thanks not only to the owners but for everyone who support local.

See you around.

    1. Hello din po, salamat sa comment nyo. Depende po yun kung ano ang gusto nyo sa skate nyo. Ang skate po kasi is bought by the part, not by the set unless may nag-offer po na set (usually second hand).

      Eto po yung pinaka-mura na set up (brand new)

      Deck - 1.5k (with griptape)
      Trucks - 2.5k (meron na mga 1k+ pag-second hand)
      Wheels - 800 (brand new)
      bearing - 800 to 1k (brand new)
      hardware - 100 to 200

      Hopefully nakatulong po ako. :)
