Mission Statement

Rip City opened its doors in 1978 as the modern era of Skateboarding was beginning…… trying to establish itself as a legitimate sport…….thankfully, that effort failed. Today, as always, skateboarding is an expression of the individual.  As boards have evolved over the decades, we have tried to keep to core products from manufacturers who consider quality over mass produced crap.

Being a small, family owned shop, overhead is low and our prices reflect it.
Stop by to check out the collection of vintage boards on our walls and ceiling or to just talk to one of the characters behind the counter……..
