Cruisers, banana boards, retro rippers, short longboards..etc
Call them whatever you want, but its safe to say this is one trend that has seriously taken off!
The most obvious benefits of these boards is how small they are. Easy to carry, easy to toss in a backpack or locker and super fun to ride.
We carry a wide range of shapes, brands and styles from the plastic Stereo (pictured) and Penny boards to retro wood and fibreglass offerings like Dogtown, Sims, Alva, Zflex, Krooked, Element and many more.
If building your own is more your thing we’re stocked with various soft cruiser wheels and smaller trucks.
Here’s the latest offering from the Vans Syndicate line.
These shoes are exclusive to a handful of shops across the country and we are proud to be the dealer for Western Canada. They are essentially the classic silhouette’s made with higher grade materials and some pretty unique details. Check them out sometime
“Celebrating the 35th anniversary of the iconic Vans “Jazz Stripe” branding, Vans Syndicate is set to release premium versions of the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi with the introduction of the Jazz Stripe 35 pack. Featuring classic black and navy colorways of each silhouette, the Pro “S” updates replace the usual canvas underlays with durable suede paneling, Duracap reinforcements and co-molded PU sockliners alongside moisture-wicking, temperature-regulating lining. ”
Sad to hear about the passing of Tom Sims. He was a pioneer in modern skateboarding as well as snowboarding and ripped at both. His brand [Sims] was one of the biggest in skateboarding through the 80′s and snowboarding in the 90′s. RIP in peace Tom
Slappy Days is a throwback to the early 90′s skate scene. Wheels were ridiculously small and pants were stupidly BIG. In many ways it was the renaissance of modern street skating. When a new generation of kids with no prior knowledge of 80′s vert skating took to the streets and especially the curbs of every town in the country.
Join us Friday September 21st @ 5pm for some good old fashioned curb dancing on Expo Blvd at the aptly named ‘yellow mile’ curb located across from Rogers Arena.
