New Shop: SkaterVader in Middleburg, FL


So, as I noted in a previous post, Middleburg has a new skateshop and skatepark. Me and the litl'un stopped by the place today to check it out. The name of the Shop is SkaterVader Skate Shop, Apparel and More, Inc., and it's located at 4283 218 West, Suite 112 in Middleburg, FL. If you are coming from Blanding Blvd, its about a couple miles west down 218, on the left.

From talking to the people working there, it sounds like there is an indoor park under construction toward the back of the building. Currently, the shop's park features some boxes and grind rails, and a couple of vert quarter pipes. It looked like they were in the process of building some things. The inside of the shop was clean, with a varied selection of shop decks and pro models, as well as accessories and clothing.

Currently, SkaterVader is advertising a raffle that'll cost you 5 dollars to enter, and will have five winners, with 1st place getting a free skate pass for 2 weeks, in addition to 200 dollars in store credit. Contact the shop for more details on the other prizes. In addition to the Raffle, SkaterVader is also offering a Skate Camp, so again, contact them for details.

It's nice to have a place for kids in Middleburg to go for skateboarding stuff. If you happen to be in the area, be sure to stop by and check out the shop. I'll be sure to stay updated on when the indoor park is finished. The number to the shop (according to my free bumper sticker) is 904.622.7503.
