I agree with Jill B. in her assessment of Modern. In my experience, Modern is a complete waste of time. It's a popular shop simply because it's the most well-known. I went there - more than once - with the intent of buying a longboard. The first time, I was talked out of buying anything by the guy working. The second time, I was simply ignored; which was truly a feat being that there was only one other customer in the store. I went elsewhere for my longboard and I'm thrilled about it. I had great service and had all my questions answered without being talked down to. If you like indoor skateparks, mediocre selection, and terrible customer service - then Modern is your place.
