Thanks for taking the time to visit our home on the WWW. I’ve been a skater since the 80’s and picked it up again a few years back. An entrepreneurial spirit has always been in my blood plus I enjoy creating and figuring out how to make things.
When I started skating again I noticed there were less local skate shops and brands in Toronto. Well in 2016 I decided to do something about that and started 6Skates. The plan was to make some cool designs and have someone manufacture the decks for me.
I was spending a lot of time at the great local Toronto skate parks what I noticed changed everything. “Back in the day” (OK, now I sound old), we skated our decks until they broke or the tails were worn down to the back trucks. My Lance Mountain with Boneite lasted me 2 1/2 years! Today skaters are getting news decks at a faster pace and the old ones are ending up in the trash.
