Welcome to another round of Comacan Questions, this week we are joined by a shop from one of the first areas we were able to bring our boards into year ago. A newer shop on the scene and one we’re excited to watch grow, please enjoy this weeks interview with Shuvit Skate Shop.
What was the inspiration behind opening a Skateshop?
It’s always been a dream to open up my own skate shop, and when my wife and I were talking about it we realized the huge gap there was in this area. She started doing all the setup for it and here we are.
Why did you choose the name Shuv it?
The play on words, and shuv its are fun man.
Where are you based out of?
We’re based out of Kitchener-Waterloo.
What does skateboarding mean to you?
It started out as something to do in the Summer and it turned into this obsession. I met some of my best friends through it, I’ve travelled because of it and seeing these different scenes around the world is one of the greatest things ever. Watching video parts with my wife and focusing more on the art and the creative process has shown me a new side of skateboarding I didn’t really pay attention to.
Do you have any big goals with the shop this year or beyond?
We want to focus on getting regular shipments of product in right now, get more local brands on the site too. When we have more time (and money) we want to have a physical location and a steady line of our own product.
Anyone you’d like to thank?
Fuck yes. Pedro from Southcide Skateboards, he’s an amazing artist and even better skateboarder, our distributors and the whole local community who has had nothing but praise for us.
