With a heavy heart, the East River Skate Shop family has decided that it's time to close our doors. The husband and wife duo of Richard Oates & Marisa Kompar officially opened our doors in May 2015. Rich started the shop in order to do something he loved and be closer to his family. As a committed member of the local community, the shop has been instilled with their passion for skateboarding, creativity & a connection to the community. Tragically, Richard was fatally injured in an accident on January 12, 2016. With overwhelming support from the community, we re-opened the shop and have continued to run it over the past year. It’s been a great year, but it's time to say farewell. We wanted to express our thanks & appreciation to all our partners, skaters, families & friends who have contributed to the community that is East River Skate Shop! Our last day of operation was Sunday, January 22nd.
Thank you for your continue love & support!!
