Looks like we’re gonna have some dry weather today! (And hopefully this week!) Luckily we restocked on bearings, wheels, all that good stuff plus TONS of new boards! New stuff from one of our best sellers Toy Machine, and pro board from Canadian pro Nate Lacoste from Roger Skateboards. Always bringing you the best in small independent brands, we also got our first boards in from Lifeblood and The Killing Floor!
Also restocked on Toy Machine completes. At $110 if you’re gonna get your kid his first board, a Toy Machine is a wise choice!
Got our first shipment of Hopps boards, a super sick indie company ran by east coast legend Jahmal Williams. Also restocked on Sk8 Mafia decks!
Two more sick brands new to the shop! Politic from the east coast featuring a pro board for legend Danny Renaud, and Welcome Skateboards, one of the raddest companies out there. All Welcome boards are wide and uniquely shaped, but THESE ARE NOT JUST CRUISER BOARDS! Have some fun and skate something interesting under your stank ass feet!
We’re stoked to let you know that we are now stocking Plains Hardware, a brand new company founded right here in Saskatoon by our friend Derek Gusikoski. Clean packaging, small heads, nothing fancy, just good hardware. Plains already has a sick team lined up including Ninetimes team members Mike Campbell and Justin Schwan.
Plains t-shirts available at the store too!
Check out the company and the rest of the team riders over at https://www.facebook.com/PlainsHardware
Just got in three styles of Diamond Supply Co polos, guaranteed to look fresh in these! Also a nice selection of new snapbacks and five panels (most available in other colours.)
New Summer 13 Huf shipment!
Another one of our favourite companies Roger just released a nice little edit of ditch skating. Super fun company that you shouldn’t sleep on! We have Roger in stock right now waiting for you goofs!
“Diving Into The Concrete Horizon (D.I.T.C.H.)
We spent five years and fifty-thousand dollars filming this monumental video. Seventeen different countries were visited and Bill Pierce nearly died from malaria. Twice. It was all worth it though. We present to you, Diving Into The Concrete Horizon: A Skateboard Video So Good You’ll Probably Either Quit Skateboarding Or Start Skateboarding Again.
Rated R for Robocop.”
Magenta Skateboard’s Hill Street Blues video that premiered in late 2012 and sold out in the store immediately is now online in full! Check out the video to get a feel of what makes this company and their riders unique. We always have a full selection of Magenta boards at the shop!
Just because we’re under renovations doesn’t mean we’re not getting new stuff! Just got in the debut Chocolate pro models for Elijah Berle, Raven Tershay, and Stevie Perez!
Also new Palace pros Danny Brady and Benny Fairfax’s first pro boards for the company.
Two new ones from Huf, the Southern in grey/black and the Mateo in black/gum. Both are super good skate shoes, if you haven’t tried out Huf shoes yet, quit blowing it!
Photos from the renovation! Stripped the front of the shop completely and removed the super low tiki roof.
Then ripped out the rest of the ceiling for an open ceiling in the new store.
You find all kind of interesting things when you tear down 15 year old walls. Doors and windows to nowhere!
The temporary back room store is open for business with a sick new hand painted sign to go with it courtesy of our friend Dave Stonehouse! We still have all of our skate stock and a great selection of clothes and shoes to keep everyone hooked up, so come check out a little taste of what the final renovation will look like!
You may have noticed recently we’ve had a lot of work going on around the shop and in the back room. The reason for this is after 15 years in business we’ve finally decided Ninetimes is due for a renovation/expansion.
So on Sunday, June 2nd we will be closing the front of the store to strip everything down. However, we have set up a temporary shop in the backroom with the door in the alley facing 8th Street so we can continue to hook you guys up with all the boards and shoes and clothing you guys need while we renovate the front.
After the front of the store is done, we will be knocking out the wall in between the two spaces for a bigger, better Ninetimes. Same stock, same staff, same service, just a bigger and better space for the only 100% skater owned and operated skateshop in Saskatoon.
Thanks for keeping us in business for 15 years and hopefully you guys will keep us going for another 15 in our improved shop! Stay tuned for mid-summer 15th anniversary celebrations…
