  • About

    www.imperialboardlords.com.I was born in 1972 and grew up in the small city of Waterville Me.I started skateboarding around 1985. In 1989 I tried snowboarding for the first time and loved it.After high school I moved to Sugarloaf USA and started my life as a snowboard bum.At the time snowboarding was a relatively new sport.All of the riders on the mountain knew eachother and I forged alot of the friendships that I still have today.In the early 90s I moved out to the bigger mountains of the west and spent a few years out there between Utah and Oregon.In 96 I moved back to Sugarloaf USA and continued snowboarding.In 98 I purchased a small camp in Carrabassett Valley.In 2000 I blew my ACL and went on to tear my MCL and a good portion of meniscus before undergoing surgery in 2003 In the fall of 2005 I decided to start up a snowboard/skateboard shop in Kingfied,Me. RECENTLY moved shop to Farmington Me.

    Thanks brother. Things are going well over here, just staying busy. Its funny we have a distributor in Canada, but not in the US, so we need more shops to carry Scoff here. Maybe you'd be interested? Love and Respect, SCOFF SKATEBOARDING

    Man, September is always slow for us, but this September is better than usual. We just have a community college here, so not many longboard sales. However, the snow gear is rolling in here too, and it is awesome. We got these new Union bindings in and one set was wood grain. Awesome.
