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.

Behind the Shack
We started Shred Shack to create an honest and transparent resource for board sports. Below is the squad.
Billy thought of the idea for Shred Shack when he was researching for a new cruiser. He started skateboarding when he was 5 years old (25 now) and picked up surfing/snowboarding soon after.
In his free time, he loves surfing, cruising on his surfskates, and trying to convince his one-year-old nephew to shred.
Mikey is the filming genius 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 COD.
You can find him on Instagram if you have any questions/feedback.
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 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 (Billy) got kicked out for having such a low GPA.
I spent most of my time building websites and longboarding instead of going to class (sorry mom).
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.
A lightbulb went off and I thought of the idea for Shred Shack. Create a website that reviewed boards based on our actual riding experience.
Something that could actually help consumers, filtering out the marketing bs.
I started off by buying every board that Penny Skateboards offered and put out a video discussing the differences.
People seemed to really enjoy it, and the rest is history.
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.
