Newquay is a small town, located in the South West coast of Cornwall, UK. For 13 years our local park was wooden, which over its lifespan slowly started to deteriorate into soggy wood with rusty copings.
Nonetheless, the local skate scene was solid. I picked up a camera a few years ago and began to film the happenings at Wooden Waves and started putting together little edits and uploading them to youtube under the TR7 CLIPZ account.
The videos started doing well and after a while I started getting people suggesting that we should start doing our own clothing too and from there grew the idea of TR7SKATE (which is what tr7clipz has now been re-named to) and the whole idea of starting something new began!Newquay has been a big part of UK Skateboarding for many years, mainly because of the ‘Boardmasters’ competition held once a year but nowadays it is the local skateboarders that are beginning to get some much deserved attention... With the new “Concrete Waves” park being built by the amazing Maverick Skateparks crew, Newquay now has a wide variety of wood pushing enthusiasts, from the young guns right up to the older skaters.
TR7 Skateboarding is all about our tight-knit community, showcasing the local skate scene in our little paradise, hence the name TR7, the post code of our beloved town! We are so happy to finally open the doors of our first local, core skate shop, and would like to invite all locals and future visitors to pop by and check it out!
We are the only ‘skater owned’ store in the area and all ages are welcome! Take a look at our website & feel free to ask any questions!
We are all about looking after the local skaters, as well as getting people into skateboarding who are new to it. Skateboarding for me is an art form as well as a sport but more than anything skateboarding is all about a bunch of people of completely different ages, cultures and backgrounds all coming together and having a good time! I’ve skated more than half my life and I want to give something back now, Cornwall isn’t America and skateboarding isn’t huge here yet but with a bit of luck it will be in the years to come!
Thanks for visiting us!
Chaz, Martina & The TR7 Team!
