The Vines is a Birmingham based independent skate and surf shop, which started out as purely online – TVSC.co. The family run business, which also has a strong connection to the local scene and UK industry, has recently opened a bricks and mortar store in Solihull. What we love about this store is the range of independent global surf and skate brands in The Vines stocklist. From The Critical Slide Society (TCSS), an Aussie brand, to Skateboard Cafe, the epic UK grassroots brand from Bristol.
Committed to environmentally conscious products and supporting UK grassroots brands, The Vines also plan on donating a proportion of their profits to selected charities Surfers Against Sewage and Live and Breath Skateboarding. We caught up with Founder Paul Vale to get the inside scoop. Check out the interview here.
