Live to skate
Once you head down the path to the "darkside" you will never want to go anywhere else.

For anyone who skateboards, Darkside Skateboards is the place to go to check out the collection of old skateboard memorabilia in the Skateboard Museum or to purchase a new skateboard, deck or wheels. It is indeed a place of inspiration and dreams and hey many many skateboards to choose from.

Dark side skateboards
Skateboards galore

"Darkside Skateboards opened in Surfers Paradise in September 1997. The real beginning though was 20 years earlier though when two ten year old kids started skateboarding after school, everyday. Mark, who owns Darkside and Don, who runs their Miami store were those kids. All they cared about was skateboards, bikes and the beach. "

I remember taking my eldest son to buy his custom skateboard a few years ago and have recently taken a trip down to Miami with my youngest to find that perfect skateboard.

Here you know the staff enjoy their job. With a love of skateboarding and working in a shop full of everything skateboard (including clothing), what is there not to love? The staff here are fantastic and extremely helpful and knowledgable.

Everything you could want is here from short boards, trick boards to the cruising long boards, decks, wheels and bearings. Whether you decide to create a custom skateboard and choose your parts or choose a brand name, they have all the skateboard brands here. Darkside also have their own custom branded skateboard put together with good quality parts.
