Cheapskates: Since 1978

Since 1978

For 40 years Cheapskates has been leading the way in Skate Culture and Skate Fashion.

We were there at the beginning of this modern era of Skateboarding and Streetwear. Powell Peralta, Santa Cruz and Vision Streetwear: Cheapskates represented all these brands as they first began to land on our shores in the very early 1980’s. Whether you’re wanting to try something new, or have been shredding it for years, Cheapskates is your destination for the authentic skate vibe.
