What is the Basement


What the?

Basement Skate is wall to wall skateboards, It's one of the biggest pure hardware skate shops in Australia. If you can't find it here, it would be hard to find it any where.

Is it open to the public?

Yes, we are a real skateshop, not just an online PO Box like some others. So come in and have a chat to the guys about anything and everything skateboarding and generally feel free to hang out at the shop.

Why buy from Basement Skate?

Because we support local manufacturers, distributors and suppliers. We sponsor many local events, national sporting associations, and young Australian riders. We live and breath skateboarding, we immerse ourselves in the community, we volunteer all our spare time to help young skaters, events and boardmakers to get a break. Did I mention we also have a RAD skate shop that provides one of the biggest collections of skateboard gear in the country. When we setup boards we only use quality parts and set them up like our own, we don't substitute cheap china crap like some online shops do. We are a real skate shop run by real skaters with real brands and a real passion for everything skateboarding, not some ebay shop designed to rip money off Australian skaters and run your local skate shop out of business.
