Common questions we get

What's the Sanction story?

If you grew up north of Toronto and loved to skate, you probably got your first board from a little shop called Boardzone.

In 2008, Boardzone grew up and became Sanction. Since then, we've built the best place to get any skateboard or snowboard gear in Canada.

Today, we're proud to have the widest selection of bindings, boards and gear anywhere.

How do your prices compare to other shops?

You'll be pretty hard pressed to find better prices than here at Sanction. We're proud to sell the most premium brands in skateboarding and snowboarding.

Why support local?

Our mission has always been to provide the best service to our customers and the widest selection of product in the country. This level of service isn't available from big box retailers who just want to sell you product that may not be properly suited to your needs.

Supporting local shops is vital for nurturing local skate and snowboard communities. These shops are cultural hubs that contribute to local events, help grow young skaters, and support the industry. Buying from local directly invests in your community and helps maintain a unique ecosystem that encourages skateboarding. Plus, our knowledgeable staff provide personalized advice on gear, promoting the growth of the sport at a grassroots level.

How much do you guys know about the products?

We are incredibly proud of the expertise our staff brings to the table when it comes to skateboard and snowboard gear. Each of our team members is not only a seasoned skateboarder or snowboarder, but they also have an in-depth understanding of the technical aspects of every piece of gear in our shop. From the nuances of deck shapes, trucks, and wheels for skateboards, to the intricacies of board profiles, bindings, and boots for snowboards, our staff can provide personalized guidance to match each rider's style, skill level, and terrain preference.

They spend significant time staying abreast of the latest trends, technologies, and safety features, ensuring our customers get the best advice and most suitable gear. At Sanction, our commitment isn't just about selling equipment; it's about sharing our passion and helping our customers to have amazing experiences.

Do you ever host events?

We do! Our biggest event of the year is the Del Boca Vista Social at Mt. St. Louis Moonstone, just north of Barrie, ON. Don't miss out this year, where you'll get a chance to try out all next years gear.

Is Sanction hiring?

We're always looking to add great people to the team who are passionate about skateboarding or snowboarding. Get in touch if you're looking to be part of an amazing team.
