  • Stay in the loop with all things skateboarding/snowboarding, from new gear releases to events, so you can provide up-to-date and relevant information to our customers.

  • Basic math skills and familiarity with using a point-of-sale system.
  • Flexibility to work weekdays, weekends, and evenings, as our shop operates to accommodate customer schedules.
  • Physical ability to handle tasks like lifting and moving heavy items, standing for extended periods, and bending and reaching.
