Skank Skates International


The skateshop is open same hours as the ramp, and located to the left of the ramp entrance. We currently have several decks, trucks, wheels, bearings, & t-shirts in stock. If we do not have in stock what your looking for, let us know and we can order it for you. This service allows you to buy in a more direct fashion therefore saves you money. Presently we only take cash & checks. All money for items not shipped for any reason will be refunded, or you can choose something else. Realize that most goods are seasonal, and when they are gone they are gone for good. Spending your money with us helps build skateparks and support the growth of skating in the Midwest. We have maintained Skank Skates, the oldest private park in the world, and we are currently involved in building skateparks in Chatham, Springfield, and Madison, Iowa. We put your money to work for you!
