Sports is just too personal an endeavor for you to shop in a megachain that's missing personality. Sun & Ski Sports has multiple outlets, certainly (our favorite is the Galleria-area location). And visitors won't find diddly in the way of golf drivers with oversized heads or softball bats of metals exotic enough to make NASA envious. But it has stuck to the basics to bring some adventure and fun to consumers. The staff is intelligent, attentive, well attuned to the latest breakthroughs in selected recreational undertakings -- and well aware of shoppers' budget constraints. Those looking for bikes, skates, skis (water or snow) and camping gear are guaranteed quality products and real professional guidance.
