New Streetboard Retailer!
Once again we come to you with news of another new Streetboard retailer - this time in Leicestershire in the shape of our friends at Black and White Boardstores. They have all the latest Streetboards on offer, and in somewhat of a rarity in retailers - they are also selling spare parts which is a big bonus. Edd from the store is a Streetboarder himself and has sponsored Adam from Team Flipside a few years ago, so they are well worth supporting. Black and White Boardstores have also been added to our Retailers Page.
