Shredding and sharing our honest thoughts. Skate, surf & snow.
Anything that’s reviewed on this website is based on experience. If we wouldn’t recommend it to our friends, we won’t recommend it to you.
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.
Here’s a shot of Billy launching off a ramp 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 Billy dropped out after a year because he wanted to go in a different direction. He spent most of his time building websites instead of going to class (oops).
Over the past six years, we tried every online business you can think of (all of which failed).
The Start of Shred Shack
We found too many websites that were mass-producing their content and clearly not actually helping anyone. Almost every site was trying to funnel us to Amazon so they got a commission.
You could tell they didn’t care if these boards were actually good or not.
So, we put out some helpful YouTube videos that were honest and people seemed to really enjoy them.
Whether you’re skating, surfing, snowboarding, or whatever else you’re shredding it’s all about having fun.
We’re just sharing what we love to do and hope it helps you.
