The Non-Stop Action Sports shop - GRIND advocates for individuals to release their inhibitions and have an adventure-fueled life. GRIND took its name from a skateboard trick that involves the skateboarder sliding along mainly relying on the use of thtrucks of a skateboard. Even the concept store’s goal is not for the faint-hearted -- the store aims to be a one-stop, non-stop shop for thrill-seeking Filipinos to find everything they need for their next surf, skate, bike or wake adventure.

Managed by the country’s biggest retail company, Primer Group of Companies, Grind carries only the most celebrated of action sports and lifestyle brands. Grind’s customers are sure to get not just an adrenaline high but also a boost of confidence that only wearing the most renowned brands of the industry can give.

Despite the different sports that Grind supports, it’s the shared culture of discipline, camaraderie, ingenuity and self-expression that the concept store advocates for. Grind sees itself as an instigator – igniting the sparks in these individuals and giving them the confidence to pursue what they love.
