About Us

Here’s the cold brutal truth: We started the shop in 2020 with hopes and dreams of growing it into something of a really sweet atmosphere for snowboarders and skateboarders alike. 

In 2020 I had this golden opportunity to fix up a place for us to go, & I took it and ran. I didn’t quite love the location but accepted it anyway moving full steam ahead. When I opened our doors, I didn’t think we’d make it. I faced a lot of challenges, a move, the decision to pick up a full time job to keep this place going, pouring more money than it made, back into it. 

We haven’t quite made it and hell I don’t know if we will. But I’ve grown and changed since starting this shop that I love dearly and hate some weeks too. I’ve learned community, love, support and that a little care goes a long way. That wouldn’t have been possible if we weren’t rooted in the heart of West Virginia deep in Appalachia. 

So here’s the plan: keep creating a sense of community through the little shop called Bane Board Company & Celebrating our Appalachian culture that I can’t seem to pull away from if I wanted to (I don’t.)
