Freeline Sports, Inc., maker of the ever-popular Freeline Skates, today added Pit Surf Shop in St. Augustine, Fl. to its list of specialty retailers and for the first time, enthusiasts in the St. Augustine market will have a chance to experience the action sport that is causing a sensation worldwide and taking the industry by storm.
Offering St. Augustine sports junkies the latest in surfboards, skate gear, and surf lifestyle apparel, Pit Surf Shop will have both the “OG” and the entry level “Grom” skates available to enthusiasts in the area.
The “OG” model is the first in Freeline’s line-up of dual independent skates that are revolutionizing the board sports industry. With reinforced swing arms that are able to hold up to 3000 lbs of downward force, the OG model is made of 356-T6 aircraft grade aluminum for maximum durability, allowing riders to achieve faster speeds than they would on a traditional skateboard.
Freeline’s “Grom” model maintains the company’s signature dual independent sideways skates, but is aimed at recreational cruisers and beginners, who need skates that are lighter, lower to the ground and easier to ride.
With the wheels facing sideways, both models are not only unique in design, but also progressive in size and style, presenting board-sports fans with almost unlimited potential and a higher level of challenge and performance. Freeline Skates are compact enough to fit in any backpack and even in pockets, making them easy to transport and great for any occasion.
“We believe that the nature of skating is about pushing through to new limits, so with Freeline Skates, we were determined to create something that would take riding to the next level,” said Farrelly. “Distributing in St. Augustine has always been a goal for us, since it caters to some of the most talented skaters in the country and Pit Surf Shop has been a key part of making that happen.”
Pit Surf Shop is located at 18 A Street, St. Augustine, FL 32080.
