Friday is the end of season party!! Come on over and celebrate all the wicked friendships we made this year. It's the last day we are open until March!! Shop is open 12-8 but we are starting the party after 6. This year has been awesome for the skating community! We got so many new skaters geared up, so many old skaters back together, and so many new friendships forged its mindblowing. I fell in love with skateboarding in a whole new way this year. There was countless hours of studing products, thousands of cups of coffee drank, many hours ripping around with friends and meeting Brandon was a small miracle for the shop as he is the best employee anyone could ask for! What a wild ride. Tomorrow is a celebration for us of what an awesome city full of awesome people we have in hand. Its all about love fools. Love and a stick of wood you beat yourself up on. halifaxlocal lovelife ridetheoctopus skate

We just got an awesome order of new decks in! We are proud to welcome AFTERNOON SKATEBOARDS to our lineup. The only problem is they might be too nice to skate! These are a superior quality deck and are wicked to skate. They are tried and tested by our shop riders who all love them! Get in here for a coffee and see these in person.
