Store Owner

I opened this shop with my oldest son back in 2003 because we wanted to have a family friendly specialty skate store in Brisbane. Since then I have had all 3 of my boys work with me and help me grow it into the reputable business it is. What a journey it has been. I have learned so much, been constantly challenged but the biggest personal growth I have discovered “Is never to judge anyone by the way they look.”

Over the years I have had the pleasure of helping many young skaters achieve their goals. Skateboard and long board riders are sponsored not only by Extreme Skates but international companies are supporting them too. Inline aggressive skaters (not so big now) and Roller Derby Skaters also have, through sponsorship with Extreme Skates, been supported by international Brands such as Riedell Skates, who support Jambi, Bont and Atom support TraumaJunkie, and Crazy Skates support Dodge N Bolt. I am so proud as are my staff to be able to contribute positively to everyone’s skating goals and life goals too. Because we believe by helping our customers/friends with their skating needs we help them achieve their goals.

Over the years we have had the pleasure in helping many community events, we get involved in the Children’s Christmas Appeal, YMCA and various school fetes to help raise funds. Extreme Skates also sponsors a Ugandan Refugee Family who support children rescued from war lords to grow up in a warm safe environment.

On a personal note my time away from the shop which isn’t much is spent with my wonderful family and two beautiful dogs Trooper and Noodle who give me so much joy, and my interest in everything Leadership, as I have always so much to learn about being a better leader.

Hi I’m Tom!

I’ve been skateboarding since I was 14 and I’ve been lucky enough to skate in different countries while travelling. I have been an Extreme Skates customer since I started skating and now I’m the store manager! I get a kick out of providing the best customer service I can and ensuring people get the best products for them. I always appreciate learning new products and technology within the skating demographics and hope to provide you with the best product knowledge.
