we're not your average owners.
We scratched our heads trying to come up with some profound outlook on skateboarding and what it means to us. We wanted to tell you about how we have decades of experience with wooden toys under our feet. And as some of us have reached our forties, and some of us are working their way there, we're still as passionate about the lifestyle as the first time we rolled down our parents' driveway.
The reality is that we have been shop rats, employees and industry vets, and now; labourers, carpenters, heavy duty mechanics, and graphic designers. Skateboarding is in our blood, and we're trying not to grow up! We are real people that skateboard that wanted to make stuff that we would enjoy, first and foremost.
We lived through lappers, boneite and rip grip. We used coffin cut wheels and slid a handrail or two on a slick. Our jeans were 3 times too big and our wheels were 3 times too small. Now, we just want to make gear that we can stand behind.
We're Canadian and proud, that will never change. If you're not 100% satisfied with our products, let us know. We'll find a way to make it right.

Compared to when we were in our teens, there are no shortage of skateparks these days. Some better than others, but for the most part, kids these days have it pretty good. Sadly, many of us live in a northern climate...

When we were younger...much younger, we would get super stoked to flip through the catalogs from our favourite brands. Obviously it wasn't the same as the actual products, but the local shops didn't bring...

Much like skateboarding, the punk rock sub-culture is something that anyone involved, never really leaves. Canadian punk legends DOA are undoubted proof of this. For more than 35 years DOA...
