Skateboards. Here at Daddies Board Shop we meet the guy that invented it nearly every week. Have you ever met him? You know the guy... He was the first to dissect his sister’s roller skates, slap the parts on a couple of 2x4’s and take them down a local hill. We call him the rad dad and we appreciate how much of a kook each one of them is. Skateboarding is a lifestyle and culture we know all too well here at Daddies.
Skateboarding is all about individuality and self-expression. Many of us were thought of as out-of-the-norm and local rejects in the mass’s eyes. We considered ourselves artists and revolutionary men. We filmed ourselves doing tricks, pairing them up with our favorite music, editing out all the mistakes. The first 2 minute clip you ever produced sent chills through your body and made you so proud no matter what your parents thought. To quote Varsity Blues. "I don't want your life."
Now that isn’t to say skateboarding doesn’t bring people together. Here at Daddies Board Shop we have a true family that could only have been brought together by our love and passion for skateboarding. Skateboarding is all about the individual; however, it unites people every day. Whether it’s teaching each other how to do certain tricks, stoking each other out on what we can do at a local spot, or just cruising around as a gang. It has many of the same characteristics of your normal main stream sports there just aren’t the same rules and regulations. Anything goes and anything is truly promoted.
Skateboarding has gone through and continues to go through many changes. It has been the subject of ridicule and thought of as a loser thing to do. Then on the other hand it has blossomed into a trendy, swag-infested, everybody-is-doing-it kind of thing. Daddies Board Shop has been the brick-and-mortar constant for the past 18 years.
Here at Daddies Board Shop it doesn’t matter if you have been skating for years, or just days, decades, or are just getting into it. We have a well-educated staff that is here to help you in whatever your skateboarding needs may be.
Whether it is just cruising down the street, rolling away from endless new tricks for one last taste of that natural high, or just a means of relieving stress skateboarding is a culture and lifestyle built for expressing oneself in whatever way you see fit.
We carry widely known brands such as
If you name any song and ask us who skated to it I guarantee one of our staff members will be able to answer the question without an iPhone or else I will eat all the roaches in my ashtray. Skateboarding can be anything. From Skating down huge hills, speed checking occasionally, and throwing a hand or two down. All the way to jumping down 15 stairs, grinding ledges or showing off your balance with a plethora of manual tricks.
From the ups and downs of injuries, to being booted from local spots by security countless times before finally getting that one trick you’ve dreamt about, skateboarding has got it goin on. Working with your filmer to capture the trick at the angle, weather, and time that you want in attempts to portray exactly how you were feeling about the situation or even that days agenda.
Skateboarding is a great sport for people of all ages and abilities. The reason, it's so easily accessible, and can be done all over. From your basement, to Burnside, from your childhood street, to the local skatepark, skating can be done just about anywhere. It’s not just about the tricks, or about the clothes, or about the gear... it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle that we here at Daddies not only embrace, but also we strive to advance.
