We sell skateboards and whatever, but that's not really the point. The point is to get people stoked.

I started skateboarding around the age of 12 and focused in on the downhill longboard scene.

When I turned 16, I wanted to buy a car. Preferably a fast car. But I didn't have any cash. My parents told me to try selling something that I like. Well, I liked skateboards.

I didn't know anything about anything. I had sold a few things on eBay for my dad's business, so I tried getting skate shops and skate brands to sell to me for an eBay store.

After getting turned down by a bunch of brands/shops, Loaded Boards said they would be "stoked to have us" if we built out an online shop.

Boom, that's the brand name. Stoked Skateboards was born.

I got lucky. There was not a lot of shops out there making custom skateboards. It was hard to get shops to put this truck and this wheel on this deck.

Customers needed to choose what they wanted, so we had these clunky drop down menus that allowed customers to pick the wheels, trucks, bearings, etc. Each skateboard was custom built before shipping. It worked and customers loved it.

As time went on, Stoked was published in The Daily Breeze and Inc. Magazine in 2012 Coolest College Startups. We also appeared on a few television programs aimed to inspire young entrepreneurs.

In 2017 we moved changed the name to Stoked Ride Shop. It better encompasses all kind of rides.

Our aim today is the same as back in 2007, ride skateboards and get stoked. We'll bust it to earn your business.
