Modern Skate and Surf was founded in 1979 by George Leichtweis. We specialize in equipment and accessories for snowboarding, skateboarding, inline skating, scooters, and wakeboarding. Modern skate was one of the first three inline skate shops in the world, along with being the first snowboard and wakeboard shop in Michigan. Additionally, Modern is still one of the longest-standing skateboard shops in the state. Our Royal Oak park, completed in 2008, features over 1-acre of ramps and rails, including a wooden bowl made by world-renowned builders Team Pain. Modern Skate & Surf was one of the main driving forces behind the fund-raising for Ranney Skate Park in Lansing, MI.
