Flatspot Camping Knives are made out of skateboards, by skaters, in a skateshop. Its like a pointy skate-ception of awesome.
The 2017 North Vancouver City Fest was another epic year of fun in the sun with the youth of the North Shore!
This year we were out in full force as always and hosting the longboard race, our Learn to Stop Sessions, a new format Boarder-X course and some Dancing. We have worked with the youth of the North Shore all year to help plan this event and could not have done it without the incredible volunteers. We also could not have put on the event without the support of the City of North Vancouver, North Shore Neighborhood House, the North Shore Alliance Church and our sponsors, Cariboo Brewing, Predator Helmets, landyachtz Longboards, Sector 9 Canada and Skate Slate. // read more
One of the things we do at Flatspot is teach people how to skate. Some basics can really help you figure out your new life on a skateboard and some tips and tricks can help you progress from there. We like to call our regular skate session ‘Lear To Stop’ because learning to stop is often a lot harder than learning to roll. Felling safe about getting off the board helps everything else come more naturally. Stopping is also going to be your first tool in an emergency, not going faster. // read more
Its summer. Glorious, warm, long days are ahead of us and its up to us, and only us, to make sure we get the absolute most out of every drop of sunshine!
Flatspot team rider Sho Ouellette took to the hills of California with Alex Colorito for the ShoCal Sessions video and dropped a beauty of a raw run with us for some bonus footage.
We’ve been getting to know Neil E Dee and his Danger Thrill Show for years now thanks to Coast Longboarding. We recently hosted Neil at the Flatspot Juke Jive Jam and learned he might not be able to attend Danger Bay this year and were bummed, so we convinced him otherwise! // read more

These boards are definitely skateboards. They are also significant pieces of art and culture. A really unique and striking blend of Jason Lee and David Bowie.
