El Skate Shop - The Wildest Skateboard Shop in the West
El Skate Shop began in 2002 as online shop AND brick and mortar shop in Huntington Beach, CA. At 177 square feet we were fairly certain we owned the title of "Smallest Skate Shop in The World".
We also went by the slogan of "The Almost Non-Profit Skate Shop" where we priced our inventory very low in order to make easier for people to keep skating. You could buy blank decks from $16 to $20. Grip was $3.
As of 2021, elskateshop.com is mostly an archival site. However, we still do sell grip tape, wax and hardware and may one day get back into the business of selling skate goods.
Past team riders included Dallas Rockvam, Aaron Babila, Chris Treiber, Chris Hernandez, Mike Davidson, Matt Bublitz, Amber Moffatt, Darrell Noran, Eric Ricks and Ryan Fitch.
We’re trying an experiment. We’re going to let anyone sell on elskateshop.com. If your a shop or just a dude with a bunch of skate stuff, you can sell on elskateshop.com. You make posts of your products, they appear on our homepage, you can share the links to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Your own site, Craigslist whatever…
As of this point in time, we don’t take cut. No charge. No Fees. Just an experiment. The first shops that apply will be grandfathered in and never have to pay to use elskateshop.com as a commerce channel.
Anyone, anybody, anywhere can apply. You don’t even have to be a shop.
You should probably get a Paypal business account so you can add Buy Now buttons to your posts. This will allow you to sell online in a snap. It’s pretty easy.
Post as much stuff as you want to your account. For now this program is FREE to all applicants.
THE ONLY RULE: If you’re a jerk and people complain that you’re not sending people the stuff the bought from you, we’ll cancel your account.
