Sk8 Skates Where Ya Feet Go Premiere
words by Fane, photos by Jackson Toone :)
Where Ya Feet Go was Sk8 Skates first snowboard video premiere ever since the shops been opened in 1987. Sk8 used to carry snowboards back in the 90s when Jai still owned the shop but when he passed all the snowboard gear was put away in the basement of the old shop and Sk8 never touched the snowboard industry since. Until my family and I took over the shop in 2020. It only made sense to bring it back since my brothers and I have been snowboarding as long as we been skating. Plus the winter season here has been extra slow for skateboarding the past few years so thought we might as well bring snowboards in to keep us busy. We started to film in the streets as well to bring that back into the Peg scene, because the streets have been dead here in the winter time for the past several years. We came out with Chief last year which was technically our first snowboard video featuring just Carter and I, but was never premiered. We are hyped to be able to bring some stoke back to the scene and to see it grow in the future!
Anyways, we premiered "Where Ya Feet" go alongside our friends from the Downhillhockeyclub crew's video "Verbal Trademark" on November 3rd at The Goodwill Social Club here in Winnipeg. Here's some photos and more words:

Legit since 1987.
Sk8 Skates is more than just a skate and snowboard shop, it is a family of individuals committed to strengthening the Winnipeg skateboard and snowboard scene.
