When I first came across Lokal House, it was quite an awkward experience. Usually, just walking up to people at a store, saying “Now I’m here, tell me what’s up” wouldn’t be my cup of tea, but after passing by Lokal House quite a few times, I was eventually ready to find out what this place was all about. And I must say that at the end of my conversation with the heads of the freshly created concept store, I more or less did – besides longboarding equipment, clothing and music, at Lokal House, you can also catch up with very nice people.
In short, Lokal House seems like a nirvana for all long-boarding enthusiasts. It’s the home for Latvian longboarding manufacturer Lokalboards, which produces its boards in a workshop right next to the aesthetically furnished shop. Each board is handmade right on the spot and promises it all – quality, design and uniqueness. It seems like everyone from Lokal House community would be happy to explain all the details about what longboarding really is, so don’t hesitate to ask for advice – it’s going to be a pleasant chat.
For those not ready to switch to extreme sports, Lokal House is also a place where you can sip on a cup of coffee and find mementos to take home, much more useful than those available in souvenir shops. CDs by up-and-coming Rigan musicians, stylish sportswear and other Latvian made goods – come one, come all for a quality local’s experience!
