Skate Corner Gunnison
Gunnison's only skater owned and operated skate shop
Our goal here at Wheelies and Waves is to spread our love of skateboarding, and share how accessible it is for everyone, old or young. Gunnison has a brand new skatepark built by the world famous Team Pain. We want to invite everyone to share this public space with us, and give you resources you need to enjoy one of Colorado’s hidden gems.
Brands we Stock
In response to the corporate owned, big box stores and companies, we here at Wheelies and Waves are dedicated to only stocking brands that are skater owned, and backed personally by our staff and our friends that spend every chance they get on a board. We are proud to carry local boards from KNUX in Crested Butte, as well as a handful of Colorado companies that are keeping the skate culture alive in our state. All of our boards are pressed by reputable companies to help guarantee they won't snap on that first ollie (PS Stix is our personal favorite).
Our commitment to the community
Every summer, with the help of the local skate community, we organize an event collecting gently used skateboards and skateboard accessories for local middle schoolers in need. In 2018, Twenty skateboards in total were put together and donated to the Middle School, and many of those donated boards have since been seen getting ripped up at the skatepark!
Thank you once again to all of the local sponsors who contributed to the effort: Mochas Coffee Shop, Twisted Fork Gunnison, Ace Hardware, The Gunnison Liquor Company, Gunnison Pizza Co, Frozen Smoke Dispensary. You all helped spread the love of skateboarding to our youth (the highest calling!)
We want to invite Gunnison Valley locals to support kids in the community by participating in our 2nd annual Skate Drive. Each year, we put on the Skate Drive to spread the love of skateboarding to our local youth. We want to play a part in developing a strong skate community that encourages kids to stay active, build connections, and support one another.
Thank for all the support yall! Please follow our skate instagram @Skatecorner_Gunnison to see product updates and pictures/videos from our local skate community.
Remember, skateboarding is for everyone, you're never too old (or young) to start! See ya out there!
