This is an event for the little person!! Skateboard companies like Bombora Board literally started because of swap and now are a major sponsor. Small companies like Skate Invaders, Zero fuck bolt company, Champstiles Woodburning, Skate Surface media, AM Wood skateboard company, Longboard Haven and most importantly anyone who has an idea! You can come to swap and start your business, get rid of clutter and make new friends!!

After the Swap Meet excitement, we head down to Toronto’s best slide jam hill aka the poop chute. The chilly weather was calling for snow and buy the end the sky let the snow fall down. That didn’t stop this years season “opener” skaters. Ontario did not let bad weather stop them from sending it hard! Even completely blind from all the snow!!!
