About

Shredding then sharing.

Anything that we publish on this website is based on our experience. If we wouldn’t recommend it to our friends, we won’t recommend it to you.

We always want to be transparent, so we created this page.

You can see every product we’ve ever reviewed (if we bought it out of pocket or got it for free) and the guidelines we follow.

Behind the Shack

We started Shred Shack to create an honest and transparent resource for board sports. Most importantly, it’s based on our experience. Below is the squad.

Billy

Billy started Shred Shack because he couldn’t find the content he wanted. He started skateboarding at five years old. Picked up snowboarding, then surfing soon after.

He loves to surf the Jersey coast, shred some surfskates, and design websites.

You can find him on Instagram or email if you have any questions/feedback.

Mikey

Mikey is the filming wizard behind Shred Shack. Similar to Billy, he’s been skateboarding and snowboarding since a young age.

In his free time, he loves to film buttery cinematics, learn a new flip trick, or 360 no scope in Warzone.

You can find him on Instagram if you have any questions/feedback.

Growing Up…

Skateboarding and filming was our life, there was nothing else we wanted to do.

We’d skate pretty much all day, then spend hours editing the coolest video we could think of.

That’s me at 13.

High school came and we both drifted away from skating. It was a huge part of our identity and without it, we felt lost.

Add in the social dynamics of school and it was a dark period for both of us.

We spent most of our time on YouTube learning as much as we could about filming.

Then we went off to film school… although I got kicked out for having such a low GPA.

I spent most of my time building websites and longboarding instead of going to class.

The Problem

I was researching for a new cruiser and couldn’t find a simple and transparent resource.

I’d either find a website funneling me to a crappy Amazon board or a website that wrote a full-blown novel that left me confused by the end of it.

You could tell these sites were mass-producing content without actually trying these boards. It was frustrating, to say the least.

I ended up buying the wrong cruiser and had to purchase another one, wasting hundreds of dollars.

The Solution

Create a website that reviews boardsport products based on our actual experience.

Something that could actually help people, filtering out the marketing bs.

Whether you’re skating, surfing, snowboarding, or whatever else you’re shredding it’s all about having fun.

We’re just shredding and sharing our honest thoughts.
