Best New Local Business: Medusa Skates

Best New Local Business: Medusa Skates
PHOTO BY Sandy Carson

With only a year in business, Medusa Skates has solidified its place as the go-to gear hub for everything Roller Derby. Rollergirl owned and operated, this badass skate shop houses derby skates, pads, gear, wheels, plates, helmets, apparel, and just about anything else one could possibly need to dominate the track. Flat-track or banked-track skates? Ain’t a problem; they’ve got both. And there’s a shop cat, Dexter. Get your skates on, ladies. Medusa’s the bee’s knees. Speaking of which, need some kneepads? Fanboys and future brats need apply.
