Hey everyone, thanks for checking out my site, Boardcoast! My name is Robbie Janes and I have been skateboarding since I was 9 years old.

I grew up watching incredible skateboard videos like Cheese and Crackers, Bag of Suck, and Yeah Right! I couldn’t stop from watching other skateboarding movies like Grind! or even the Jackass movies and Viva La Bam either. I was fully dedicated to the skate culture.

Although I never became a pro skater, I worked as a store manager at a Zumiez here in Canada for a couple years and continued growing my knowledge when it came to skateboarding, the culture, and the sweetest skate gear.

With a college diploma in journalism and a love for the sport of skateboarding, I’m here to help guide you through learning new tricks, where to find some sweet skate spots, and hopefully steer you in the right direction when it comes to buying new skateboards.

If you want to contact me, please do by emailing me at [email protected], I check and respond to every email that I get, even if it takes a couple days.

Cheers guys and happy skating!
