Growing up in San Fransisco in the 1970's, skateboarding and surfing were a way of life. Skateboards were how all the kids got around. I rode my skateboard EVERYWHERE and learned everything I could about them and the skating community. When we moved to Grand Rapids I quickly found the best skate shop in the area was in Rockford, Michigan. I asked to go there everyday to check out the new gear or maybe meet one of the professional skaters that would stop by the Rockford shop. I dreamed that someday I would own a similar shop. Fast forward many years... I was a father of three and hadn't skated in... well more than a few years. The skate shop I loved as a kid was no longer in Rockford but an indoor park had opened in Grand Rapids. I grabbed my old board, tightened my trucks and headed to the park to see if I still had it. One drop in the bowl and it all came back. I knew this was something I wanted to continue and share with my kids. When my family moved to Rockford a few years later I kept thinking, this place needs a skate shop again. After seeing how much my own kids and their friends enjoyed the sport I knew it was time. Rogue Skate Shop was born. We are a full service, old school skate shop here to bring a beloved sport to the community and help service all your skating needs. Stop in to see us today.
