This Christmas when you are gift shopping for family and friends, please remember to shop your local core skate, bike, and scooter shops and your local indoor skatepark (if you are lucky enough to have one in your town)! When we shop local, the profit generated from our purchase goes to local business owners and their families, not to huge multinational corporations or online retailers headquartered far away and often in a foreign country.
Local shops and parks are the ones who organize comps, demos, and video premieres. They are the ones that will be there to support efforts to get a new skatepark in your community. The big mall stores rarely (if ever) invest time, effort, or money to build the local scene, they just move their profits to head office.
Skateparktour.ca really appreciates the support of several excellent core shops over the past year, and two outstanding Canadian skatepark design and construction companies. We want to recognize and thank these businesses for their help in keeping Skateparktour.ca alive and growing!

Since Skateparktour.ca went live in August of 2006, it has helped people locate and navigate to skateparks near where they live and travel. Skateparktour.ca also allows skatepark users to check out parks before making the trip to the park, to make sure it s one that they will enjoy riding. Skateparktour.ca is the perfect tool for planning your own skatepark tour, like the one taken buy the Miler family during the summer of 2016. I don't know if the Millers used Skateparktour.ca to plan their trip or not, but they could have, because all of the 14 parks they visited are in the Skateparktour directory!
