An Irish skateboard company for skateboarders by skateboarders.
Welcome to the home of the Irish skateboarding team Boarderco, founded in Ireland in 1999 by Irish sponsored skateboard pro Wayne Gallagher, aka Wayne G.
Our vision for Boarderco was to create a skater owned skateboard brand that would directly appeal to the Irish skate culture. As the global phenomenon of skateboarding was taking off globally, back in the late 1999s Ireland, skateboarding was only in its infancy stages of popularity. It was around then that Wayne G had a vision, instead of waiting for the industry to truly seep across the Atlantic into Irish soil, Wayne decided to take the business leap of faith and decided to create his own skateboard brand Boarderco. Since the beginning, Boarderco has rapidly and creatively embedded itself as one of the ultimate status symbols of Irish skateboarding. At the true heart of our company, we always had deep down desire to try help and promote Irish skateboarding, we sponsored many riders over the years to give them a solid foundation where theycould build their careers as sponsored skateboarders. It was this positive drive and inspirational vision of two skateboarding friends, Mike Keane and Wayne G that officially launched Boarderco into the world.
Over the years, Boarderco has been somewhat of asponsorship flying saucer hovering over the Irish landscape, ready to spot and abduct the next generation of skateboarding talent to add to ourteam. Throughout the years, the team consisted of a number of extremely talented Irish and International pros, along with a lethal crew of hungry amateurs. Some of Boardercos former team riders include, Bernard Rae, Blayney Hamilton, Rob Benson, James Black, Jason Reddan, Joe Hill, Thomas Kalbolm (Norway) Johno Whelan, Martin Regnal (Swedan) James Garner (UK) Steve Kelly. Two names that stand out are Conhuir Lynn and Gav Coughlan who have got on US Flow ‘Massive respect to them both’. It is great to see some Irish skaters on the way up, building their careers from the raw concrete streets of Irish skateboarding.
