Building Shops and Skating Streets since 1978
Skaters - Shop Reviews and Testimonials
This is the best skateshop I have ever been to. Last weekend went to several stores looking for components for a custom build. No other store had any of the parts I wanted in store. I was amazed to find they had every single part I was looking for and was able to make suggestions to improve my build! Super nice staff as well.
My school recently got a donation from CalStreets. Everyone was really happy. We had a competition where the winner would keep a really cool Critter skateboard. It's very rare we get donations, especially from a store so far away. I would like to thank Rick Tetz for taking the time to donate such amazing gifts. He is a really cool man.
Ordered from Toronto and it was super smooth. They added a little personal note to the order which made me smile. The shipping was quick and free for the dinghy I ordered. A way better experience overall than when I ordered from Royal boards in Calgary, who didn't update the stock on their website resulting in me purchasing an out of stock item and then having to pay a 4$ PayPal fee to get a refund. I'm going to go straight to Boarder labs in the future!
Good selection of all things skateboarding. Check them out online before you visit the store as prices differ. They offer a great selection of electric boards. Definitely worth a visit.
I bought an Evolve board from Brandon. Awesome service and super helpful. I'd reccomend these guys for there honesty and integrity. Great business.
Amazing service and great products. Easy to find location and tons of selection for every type of skater. I would recommend.
Picked my first board there, I didn’t know anything about boards before I walked in that shop. Staff there were super nice and helpful, gave us lots of suggestions, and helped us built beautiful boards. This is the best shopping experience I’ve ever had!
These guys are phenomenal!! I've purchased a BB and a onewheel XR from them and in every aspect the team at Boarderlabs goes above and beyond in every aspect. If only every business operated like these guy - top notch!! Give them a shot, you won't be disappointed!
Bought the 1st skateboard for our 9 year old at this store. Great advice, lots of options and friendly staff made it a great experience. I ended up buying a longboard for myself as well!
Couple of thumbs up to Graham and Brandon for their help with my order! Both were very helpful and courteous! Graham even took the time to call me back to let me know the particular color of one of my item wasn't in stock just so I knew it could cause delays... I ordered the second choice color... Thanks guys! As much as the online shopping thing is convenient, it doesn't beat good ole real people support like I got tonight! Hey Boss man (or lady), please get em a beer on my behalf! Seasons greetings guys! Cheers!
I have been skateboarding since 1975. In 1988, I visited Vancouver and went to the original CalStreets. It was insanely cool. Of all the shops I have visited, CalStreets Boarder Labs has the most incredible range of product I have ever encountered. The store is FILLED TO THE BRIM with skate goodies.
Biggest selection of skateboards and skateboard accessories in Vancouver.
Boarder Labs & CalStreets is definitely the most complete skate/longboard shop in Vancouver. Complete skates, all the separated parts, accessories, gear protection, fingerboards, carver boards, apparel etc...They also have the best electric boards in the market!. Friendly and knowledgeable staff! Recommended!
Absolutely a first class experience. Staff are both professional and knowledgeable. The owner of the shop is genuinely a great guy. Him and one of his staff members, Brandon, made the whole experience fun, easy and memorable. Hands down the BEST skate shop in Vancouver.
My go-to board shop from now on. They went all the way to make sure I got exactly what I wanted.
Huge diverse selection of gear and really fulfills their title as a "skateboard superstore". This shop caters to every niche of skateboarding imaginable and the staff is very knowledgeable about all their product. Ive been a regular in the shop ever since they opened about three years ago, and love it how they always have new creative displays and murals each time I visit. Their customer service is outstanding, and I would definitely recommend you pay them a visit if you are ever in the West 4th area. Or just love skateboarding! Keep up the amazing work guys!
Not knowing much about Longboards and having to purchase one as a gift for my nephew, i found the guys there to be very helpful in getting a setup that would be good for a 13yr old who is just starting out. I was also able to get all the protective padding there as well, which was nice. Id definitely recommend Longboarder Labs, i left the store feeling happy with my purchase and will definitely go back.
Knowledgeable staff and gr8t selection of street, freestyle & downhill boards and gear. Best selection of electric longboards in BC.
Great store with a huge range. If you need anything skateboard related, I almost guarantee they have it. Got an enjoi complete from here at a great price.
Excellent store, very helpful staff and a great selection.
Helps me with all my longboard problems.
Great people, such help to someone who knows nothing about boards. Will definitely be coming back here!
