    Default Online Skate Store Guide

    Please, add sites that are not yet listed.

    For those of you who are wondering about online shopping for your skateboarding needs, here are some popular online skate stores.

    __________________________________________________ ________________

    Active Mailorder:
    Started in 1989 in Chino, California.
    Sells footware, accessories, and pretty much everything you need for skateboarding.
    Good prices with a huge selection. Very good site.
    Their warehouse is based at:
    12087 Landon Dr.
    Mira Loma, CA 91752

    Shipping Chart(So you know when it should arrive)

    __________________________________________________ ________________


    CCS:
    One of the most popular online skate stores, based in Norther Ohio.
    They carry all skate products, and have relativly good prices.
    Their clearance section is a very good deal.
    When I ordered, it came in exactly 5 buissness days. And I live in Southern Arizona.

    This page contains the shipping prices: http://shop.ccs.com/customerSupport.do

    "CCS has been pretty reliable to me for the most part. Since they're in Ohio and I live in Michigan, shipping is hardly ever an issue. The only problem I've ever had is that they were supposed to send me some replacement wheels, but they never did. But I called them up about it and I'm getting store credit, so there's no problem anymore."
    -The Unkown Soldier

    http://www.ccs.com/


    __________________________________________________ ________________


    Zappos:
    Though this isn't exactly a skate store, it is one of the best places to find shoes. Fast(and sometimes free) shipping and low prices, I highly recommend Zappos for shoes.

    My favorite thing about Zappos is the multi view-
    http://www.zappos.com/n/multi_view.c...f=multi-button

    The customor reviews are helpful as well.

    "Zappos is so sweet though. On December 23rd I ordered a pair of slippers as a really last minute Christmas present for my brother. They arrived at my house the next day, on the 24th. Free Shipping next-day shipping."
    -Ipswitch

    Skate Park of Tampa:
    Great shop, run by an extremely helpful staff. Located in Tampa, Fl. Reliable online inventory, which automatically updates to prevent backorder. They carry everything they have online in the shop.

    Sales all of the time. In normal human sizes, also. I have gotten shoes for 15$ there in the past.

    There shipping is always great, and I've only ever had 1 problem there out of many orders placed.

    Overall excellent shop for any type of skate product!

    "I love Skatepark of Tampa. I've been to the actual shop, so I know how cool the staff are and how great their selection of products is. As for ordering things, they have quite fair deals, and they're always sure to include free stuff with your orders, including lots of stickers and sometimes even promo DVDs. Shipping has been quite good to me, considering our location difference. Highly recomend ordering from here. They know what they're doing."
    -The Unknown Soldier

    __________________________________________________ ________________



    BlackHole Boards:
    They ship very fast, and they give you a rate for when it will get to you, using UPS ground.
    Scroll down:
    http://www.blackholeboards.com/conte...95947635&tab=5

    Plus, they have tons of items, they run good deals especially that one deal they had when you could get any of those selected shoes for $10.
    This site is just plain great.

    http://www.blackholeboards.com


    __________________________________________________ ________________



    Skate Warehouse:
    Located in San Luis Obispo, California, which is slightly north of Santa Cruz.

    They dont have the best selection in the world, but the more than make up for it in customer service, great prices, cheap, if not free, shipping even to foreign countries.

    They sell everything a good skateshop would sell. Shoes, Decks, Wheels, Clothes Etc.
    Country List: http://www.skatewarehouse.com/int/country.html

    http://www.skatewarehouse.com/

    "SkateWarehouse is dooooooope.
    So good with customer service, prices are great, and the shipping is HELLA fair.
    Order from them!"
    -OldSchool J

    Skate America:
    I've ordered shoes and clothes from Skate America. I ordered 3 shirts; 2 of which came very late, and 1 never came. I also ordered shoes. I ordered them about a week and a half before a trip to Florida. I was bringing my board, so I wanted the new shoes for the trip. I thought I would definitely get the shoes in time, but of course, they never came. LUCKILY, a friend of mine was coming to Florida with me, but had a flight 2 days later. The shoes came the day after I left, so he went and picked them up, and brought them on his flight. So yeah, my experiences with Skate America haven't been very good.

    __________________________________________________ ________________



    Utility Board Supply:
    Sells just about everything skateboard related. You can buy clothing, shoes, skateboards, ramps, and the like. Prices are pretty reasonable, and checking a site like retailmenot.com usually turns up coupons which will take around 10 % off the price. In my dealings with them customer service was very prompt and helpful in replying. My order was delivered in three days, UPS ground to Arizona.

    www.utilityboardsupply.com

    "I highly recommend Utility Board Supply. They have great customer service and shipping.They were prompt to tell me that the item I requested was out of stock.The guy even gave me a discount on shipping because a set of wheels I exchanged were a bit more expensive than the Bones I wanted.Getting your item with basic UPS Ground for 9.00 dollars AND getting it in 2 days compared to CCS...UBS>CCS" -Bellboy

    "I order stuff from utilityboardsupply.com all the time and they have always been great to me. Good deals and the customer service people are helpful." - Deadsnyder
    __________________________________________________ ________________



    Blankdecks:
    Blankdecks.com is a very reliable source, the boxes aren't over sized and they will pack things in the same bag to save space.
    Sometimes they will give you 10 stickers for free with no request, which is nice.
    The customer support is also very good.

    www.blankdecks.com


    __________________________________________________ ________________



    A1skateboards:
    A1skateboards.com is very good about getting products out fast even on ground shipping. When i got my deck from them the package was taped together as someone had rumaged through it, but i think that's custom. I have never used the customer support they provide, but they seem nice. This site is a really reliable for a wide selection of boards, especially from Europe, which you usually don't find much in the US.

    www.A1skateboards.com



    __________________________________________________ ________________


    Lakai Outlet:
    Lakai's official outlet store. Best place to buy old Lakai models.
    VERY cheap.

    I and I Boardshop

    Some of y'all already know us, but thought I'd get us up here on the official sticky.

    I and I Boardshop
    3959 Martin Way E
    Olympia, WA 98506
    360-459-8149
    http://www.iandiboardshop.com
    sales@iandiboardshop.com

    We started as a small local shop, and we just got our online store up and running a few months ago. Just went through a huge upgrade so now everything is auto-synched so you never have to deal with back-orders or anything. We're working on getting a bunch more product up there, but right now there's a fair amount of shoes and decks. When we put shoes on sale, we mark them down at least to our cost, usually below our cost, so you can find some pretty sick deals if you check in from time to time. We also have some serious cheap deals on snowboards and snow gear too, if anyone's into that. Plus there's real live girls modeling the swimsuits, so you can't go wrong with a browse through that category ;)

    We're also looking for folks who have their own websites or blogs with a fairly large readership who would be interested in doing product reviews for us. Basically, we send you some free shit and you write about it on your site and link to us. Sweet deal, huh? But you gotta have some numbers showing that you get a large number of hits in order for it to be worth it to us.

    Shipping is free if you're ordering more than $100, so if you have a couple local buddies that want to buy shoes with you, you can go in together and get free shipping, as long as you all want it shipped to the same address. Shoot me an e-mail anytime with any questions you have.

    Peace,
    DeAnna
    Web Store Manager

    Enjoy!





    Here's some info for canadian buyers

    - Skate warehouse: Hands down the best skateshop online imo. 1 day shipping to canada, great selection great customer service. A+

    - Jays boardshop: Good prices, poor selection, quick shipping. B+

    - Action village: Great site. Quick shipping and fair prices. selection is good as well. A

    - Premier skateboards: great selection of nike SB's, not much else though. SHipping is a bit much aswell: C

    - SKate america: Fucking FAIL. SHipping to canada, for a pair of pants is 50$. Fifty bones is about as much as the damn pants as well. Kept me waiting for 3 months on a back ordered tee. While it APPEARS they have everything under the sun they just lie, they don't even have half the stuff they have up there, they say they'll order it from the factory for you.Fucking F.


    - CSS: While i hear good things from U.S customers service to canada is abysmal. Claimed they shipped my complete but they never did. was waiting a month. Finally I send them an email and ask whatsup and they say shipping to canada takes about 30 days but wait, we never even sent your board out. So I take a refund. F 'em. F.









    Please, feel free to make your own, and I will fit them in here. Just give me a link, and write something about the company.

    Or just leave me a comment about the site, and your experiences.

    The only online shops I use are CCS and Skatepark of Tampa.


    CCS has been pretty reliable to me for the most part. Since they're in Ohio and I live in Michigan, shipping is hardly ever an issue. The only problem I've ever had is that they were supposed to send me some replacement wheels, but they never did. But I called them up about it and I'm getting store credit, so there's no problem anymore.


    I love Skatepark of Tampa. I've been to the actual shop, so I know how cool the staff are and how great their selection of products is. As for ordering things, they have quite fair deals, and they're always sure to include free stuff with your orders, including lots of stickers and sometimes even promo DVDs. Shipping has been quite good to me, considering our location difference. Highly recomend ordering from here. They know what they're doing.
