Born from a scene video in 2008, Skateboard Cafe never had a plan to be a board company, it was just a bunch of mates from Bristol, skateboarding and having fun. As all good things do, Cafe grew organically from small runs of the iconic 'starfucks' tee, and slowly advanced to a small run of boards in some local shops, into what it's become today.
As Cafe has grown so has the team and their video productions, in an age of throwaway Instagram reels and TikTok skateboarding, Skate Cafe stands out from that mold by producing some of the finest British skate videos from this side of the early 2000s (in my opinion). The team includes Harry Oglive, you know the guy who hippie jumps everything? Yeah, him. One of Bristol's most prolific skateboarders and all-around athlete, Kohran Gayle, alongside the likes of Sheffield's own Shaun Currie.
Rich Smith is at the helm of Skateboard Cafe with his VX in hand, the man behind the scenes and the reason Cafe started in the first place - Rich knows his shit, and you can see it from the videos he puts out to the graphics, it just feels authentic, it's hard to describe.
