Map & Details>>

Before trendy boutiques, hipster specialty shops, and Dutch Brothers found the northwest corner of Central and Camelback (We know! Why was this corner so hard to find in the first place?), there lived a humble little skate shop with a clever storefront sign. (That long-gone sign was made of old skateboard decks, but rumor has it that it "wasn't to code.") We knew Cowtown Skateboards back in the day, when a trip to Baskin Robbins was part of buying new Vans.BR went the way of that righteous sign, but Cowtown lives on in its original space, with additional thriving shops in the west Valley and Tempe. You won't find friendlier, scruffier staff anywhere in town. These guys know their shit and are so cool about it — and not just to the skate punks who hang around watching endless videos — that their chill attitude is a service in itself. Great selection and prices. Killer sales. Repairs. Events. Fly website. These days you could buy your Vans at Nordstrom, but, dude, what the hell?

So glad to see Cowtown winning Best of PHX. We cant stand going to skateboard stores with the kids but this place has single handedly kept my boys skateboarding because we love going in here! We always get the $20 dollar sale shoes and the Cowtown shop boards. We are on a budget and Cowtown seems to know that! Thanks for staying around and hope to see you guys for years to come!


I love Cowtown! All the boys behind the counter are hotties and seem like they really know their skate culture and all the little ones look up to them. I always go in with my little brother and they are so nice to him and his friends. Great service, even better prices. We just hate having to go to the mall and this place is a savior! 5 Stars!
