We Scam Artists are proud of our work. It is our policy to ensure that all boards that leave our door are of the highest quality. That is why we use 100% hand-inspected hardrock CANADIAN maple in all of our decks. The majority of our boards are CNC cut, ensuring accuracy down to fractions of a millimetre. Our boards are pressed between machined forms for 12 hours each, guaranteeing a perfect bond between veneers and an in-press cure (Many companies remove boards from the press once the adhesive has set, and let it cure without pressure). We pride ourselves in keeping customers happy, contact us if you experience any trouble with your board and we'll do our best to help you out.
Scam Skate began in 2009 when two Portage la Prairie high-school kids, Gavin and Joel, decided to start printing t-shirts. They bought their first screen printing setup when they were in grade 11, and started a line of shirts that featured simple characters they designed while in class. The character shirts started to gain popularity in the school, and eventually weaselled their way into the local skateshop, Platform Skate. After high-school, the partners began to build longboards and add them to Scam's line of products. In 2013, Scam Skate incorporated and became a legal business. Scam Skate has continued to increase in popularity and demand, encouraging Gavin and Joel to continually increase their product quality and production capacity. Now, Scam Skate boasts over 40 unique products and happy customers across Canada.
