I like Cole's, but I usually go to Banhoff's, because I can just walk there. Also, it's local-ish (there are two other stores in Michigan and Breck, but it is pretty close to local), quick, and there is greater than typical consistency in staff. Tim at Destination Sports is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, and he is truly local, so you might want to try there too. As long as you are at Coles, you might as well cross the street and go to Jans. The general manager there is also in a local band (that is really good).
As far as boards go, there is a place next to El Chubasco (I am not a boarder, so I never remember its name), but it is local boarder paradise, and you can go to El Chubasco when you are done. Can't beat that.
Anyway, have fun.
