About the Skate Bunker and Pardon My Thrashing
Pardon My Thrashing: Chicago Based Skateboard Company
Pardon My Thrashing is a collective of like minded skaters whose core lies deeply in the belief that fostering a community of skateboarding is as important as the act of skateboarding itself. Community drives passion, motivation and therefore thrashing. PMT is the sharing of the pure excitement of skateboarding through the camaraderie fostered by critical mass.
It’s no accident that many PMT’ers are of an older generation of skaters. A good portion of us have re-kindled that passion upon meeting others getting back into the fray at the same time. Its pretty inspiring to be part of a group of skaters rolling up at a park that are older than many of the parents watching their children. However, there is no reverse ageism happening here, many of us have found their way to the collective purely based of the exuberance for skateboarding as it was back in the day; fun, inclusive and creative with no rules.
Pardon My Thrashing ‘the company’ is born from all of these feelings. It’s an extension of these passions into the physical world. The art and the shapes of our first boards are burned into all skaters’ brains. Everyone can remember their first decks with great detail; how it felt to stare at the graphic, associating our skateboard personality with those qualities. We aim to rekindle those feelings with art and shapes that inspire, just like the old ones did.
The Skate Bunker: Indoor Skate Facility In Logan Square
When Pardon My Thrashing formed as a LLC. we planned that one day we would have a office, warehouse, and place to skate, all under one roof. For the past four years we have used home offices, coffee shops, a Ford Flex…all as offices and storage. Huffing decks and merch up and down stairs at a home office gets old. Storage at our current California Ave. location is super limited. It’s fun to be surrounded by skateboards but when you can’t move it’s overwhelming!
Through constantly looking for a proper space, some good connections and a little bit of right place, right time, we found our spot. We at Pardon My Thrashing are so grateful by the support that we have received. Our goals are fairly simple. Support skateboarding, support Chicago skateboarding, support local business, be decent humans, offer the best quality products that we can, give great service, and have fun all while contributing back to the community.
The space has everything we need, really. (Well, you can never have too many ramps, right?! so we’re gonna keep building). We don’t want to just shut the door and make this some mysterious place that is unapproachable and people have only heard about in stories. We want to make this spot a true skateboarding community hub in Chicago. While this is not a true skatepark ,we will offer a limited amount of monthly memberships and have open skate sessions on select days as well as skateboarding classes and events.
Again, thank you for your support of Pardon My Thrashing and the skateboarding community – PMT.
