About Us

SK8 Clothing is a Canadian online skate shop located in St. John’s, Newfoundland. If you didn’t know NL is the most eastern province in Canada and St. John’s is one of the oldest cities in North America.

Our Story

Growing up in Newfoundland we never had access to core skate brands and the internet was fairly new at this point so if we wanted to buy skateboarding gear it was through mail order catalogs from the USA. This gave small places like us access to all the latest and greatest that skateboarding had to offer, but they were very limited in customer support and left us longing for more.

Fast forward to 2007 and it was still hard to find an online skate shop here in Canada and we were getting sick of ordering from the US. We thought we can’t be the only ones who felt this way? So, we decided to open our own online skate shop in 2008.

The main idea of SK8 Clothing is to be your local shop if you live in a small city or town that does not have a core skate shop. It’s important to shop local but if you live in a small place you know that’s not always possible.

That’s why we want to be your friendly neighborhood skate shop.

If you have any questions you can call, text, or instant message us on Instagram we always respond quickly.

We offer you FREE Shipping to anywhere in Canada on orders over $99.

We stock everything we sell and ship your order the same day if placed before 1pm ET Monday–Friday.

If you're new to skateboarding or a truly experienced skater you're in the right place. SK8 has everything you need to keep pushing.

Since 2008 we have been selling to thousands of happy customers across Canada and we’re getting better at it with every passing day. Over the years a lot has changed in our industry and shopping online, but our company’s core principles will always remain the same.

Our Core Principles:

Keep Pushing.

Our message is to remind people to keep pushing no matter the situation. It’s about pushing oneself for continuous improvement, be it on a skateboard or in life. Always push the limits on what is “normal.” Push to be different and inspire change.  

Always deliver more than is expected.

They say “you can’t please everyone” but we challenge that. We don’t try to be everything to everyone but when it comes to our customers we’ll always provide that extra-mile service. We believe you should live generously and graciously toward others. Our commitment is to provide our customers with the best possible shopping experience we can offer.

Be appreciative.

If you’re willing to spend your hard earned money with us, we truly appreciate you. It’s our customer that allows us to continue doing what we love and we’ll always be grateful for that.

Live with integrity.

No matter how educated, talented, cool, or rich you believe you are, how you treat people in the end tells all. We always treat our customers, vendors, partners, and each other with this principle in mind.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know us!
