Basement Skate has been up and running for a little while now. We first talked about them in our post: Hopshop is Dead: Long Live Basement Skate. It went over the closing of the always loved Hop Shop and the opening of Basement Skate. They're stocking a BUNCH of Rayne Longboards and Rayne Wheels all in stock right now and were stoked!

Instead of me rambling on and telling you about them I'll let them!


Basement Skate is 180sqm and 2 levels of everything skateboarding. It is the biggest pure hardware skate shop in Australia and one of the biggest in the world. We have an indoor mini ramp that gets abused by hundreds of kids everyday. Its a place we hold skate events in, movie nights, product launches, art exibitions, and we also happen to stock and sell a lot of skate gear.

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.
