Shorty’s Short Stacks 1/2” Riser Pads


The Shorty’s Short Stacks 1/2” Riser Pads are the absolute perfect half inch riser. They are not 100% hard plastic. Unlike other pads they offer a thin foam cushion layer to add extra comfort as well as prevent stress cracks. These sweet pads require 1.5” hardware and work on both longboards and skateboards.

Shorty’s claim to fame includes the black magic eraser, first pre-cut grip sheets, half threaded small headed hardware, and the shock pad. They are one of few skater owned and run companies left in existence.

Shorty's Short Stacks 1/2'' Riser Pads Vancouver Canadashortys-short-stack-stack-pic-all-sizes-infoShorty’s Short Stack riser pads are a foamtastic way to raise up your board. Foamtastic? Yeah thats right. The riser pads feature a thin foam layer to help prevent stress cracks and give the rider a more comfortable ride. Truly a great way to raise up any longboard or skateboard. You will need 1.5” hardware for these risers! They will accommodate both old school and new school holes.  

Hard to believe a high school drop out could be so successful? Hardly when your heart is in it 100%. With a gut feeling and 200 bucks, Shorty’s was born. But why Shorty’s? I mean whats that name even mean? Well, way back when, we all used to rock fat riser pads and 1.5”-2” hardware. Shorty’s was a name given to their much shorter hardware. As now, people had given up the fatty risers and were riding low. No need for your hacksaw to cut your bent bolts down anymore. How did they do it? Shorty’s scraped by and managed to put out products by working feverishly to fund the company through other means. (Cleaning homes, nothing illegal!)

Shortys Canada Online Sales Pickup VancouverCan you believe how a high school dropout could rise to such success? Well, when you pour your entire heart into something, success is hardly surprising. With just a gut feeling and 200 bucks, Shorty’s came into existence. But why Shorty’s? What does that name even signify? Back in the day, when everyone was using thick riser pads and 1.5”-2” hardware, Shorty’s was the name given to their significantly shorter hardware. As trends shifted and people abandoned the bulky risers for a lower ride, there was no longer a need to trim down your bolts with a hacksaw. How did they manage it? Shorty’s hustled and scraped by, funding the company through sheer determination and other means (like cleaning homes—totally above board!). One of their most iconic ads, "Rosa," started as a playful jab, poking fun at the typical girly posters you'd find in an auto shop. They didn't stop there, though. Shorty’s even courted controversy with an ad so bold that it was actually confiscated by Japanese customs for being too provocative. Shorty’s rose to fame with innovations like the black magic eraser, the first pre-cut grip sheets, half-threaded small-headed hardware, and the shock pad. They stand out as one of the few skateboarding companies still owned and operated by skaters themselves.
