A Specialist SkateBoard and BMX Store
The Boarding House is a specialist Skateboard and BMX store, established in Fore Street Exeter since 1984. They carry a full range of Skateboard and BMX equipment, hardware and clothes shoes. They also offer servicing/fitting of equipment.
Anything not in stock, can be ordered at short notice specifically for you.
Tim, the owner, says:-
We are firmly of the opinion that a good local store should be a integral part of the local scene, and so have worked hard to this end – campaigning, fund-raising and building the first skatepark of the current era at Arena Park, and working with Exeter City Council on all the other skateparks since (Exeter now has 4 separate Skate facilities)
We also have Skate and BMX riders representing the shop from the local area, put on local events such as competitions, video screenings and also produce a free guide to Skateparks in the South West area.
Excellence In Customer Service
The Boarding House is proud of the extent of its knowledge and customer service. They feel strongly that buying specialist equipment can never be fully successful ‘online’, as nothing beats getting the right advice in the shop. The shop also serves as a hub for locals to meet up, fix equipment, find out what’s going on.
The Boarding House Story
My background is Skateboarding since 1978 and BMXing since 1980. I worked in the shop in the mid-90’s, then took it over in 1997. I’d worked in the industry since 1987, and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do really! Skateboarding and BMX are the best, and to help and advise people get into these great pastimes is a reward in itself! We are constantly involved in promoting the Skate and BMX scene here in Exeter, with video events, comps, magazine/website coverage.
Tim has also worked in consultation/construction of Skateparks since 1999, a service he continues to offer, with many successful projects completed for Local Authorities.
