Est. June 2011
It all started with the age old question that a dad commonly asks his son when they're a teenager “what do you want to do with your life”? In my case, it was at the age of 16 years old. Being an avoid skateboarder and soon to be snowboarder the answer was easy, “I want to own a Skateboard shop”.
As the years continue to go bye, both school and jobs inevitably come and go but my dream never died. When I caught word that my good friend Joel Hersey was moving out my way, I took it as a sign of potential things to come. Given Joel's history having previous experience having already managed and owning shops, I thought he would be an ideal fit into helping me establish a local shop out here in the Fraser Valley.
During one of Joel's visits, I mentioned to to him... “Hey get in the car, I want show you something”. I drove him to one of the local Chilliwack strip malls by the Bottle Depot in Sardis and said “I want to open a skate shop called "theTRUTH" right there and I want you to be partners with me”. Without missing a beat, Joel agreed and we haven't looked back ever since.
With all that said, here we are now years later and we're still living out the dream of the 16 year old boy owning a skate shop.
