Our small town in Cornwall, UK 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!
TR7 Skate began in 2018, when I (Chaz Merryweather) was filming constantly down at our local skatepark ¨Wooden Waves¨. I would put all the clips I filmed together and make short edits out of it all, posting them on youtube/facebook.
My girlfriend Martina and I began selling out of our flat, with just a bunch of decks and hoodies but soon grew out of our flat and were lucky enough to find a small storage unit in town which we converted into our showroom early 2018.
We settled into that shop nicely over the first year but soon after settling in started feeling like we needed somewhere bigger....
In october 2019 we came across our dream building, with space to do a really nice shop, a chill out room and most importantly, an indoor skatepark!
Part of making this big transition from storage unit shop- indoor skatepark was hiring new staff and we were more than happy to welcome Harry to our team of staff as he already rides for us and is a great carpenter!
We got to work immediately after signing the papers and 2 months later here we are, with a finished skatepark and shop!
We pride ourselves on our customer service here, we are the only skater owned shop in the area, Harry and I are both fanatical skateboarders which makes us very passionate about our jobs and we can offer you bucketloads of advice wether it be what board you should buy or even how to ollie higher!
We are open to the general public but our main goal with the skatepark is to offer a wide variety of lessons/sessions which allow the kids to continue progressing in the sport alongside making loads of new friends, regardless of the weather!
We want our skatepark to be a safe place where people of all ages can come and have a great time!
Our new location is Prow Park, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 2SX.
Find us in Google Maps as TR7 Skateboarding.
