About us

Established in 2000 by lifelong skateboarders, Escapist strives to provide Kansas City skateboarders with the best selection of skateboarding products and to strengthen Kansas City skateboarding and bring national attention to it. Our employees have several years of first hand skateboarding experience, which ensures that our customers receive knowledgeable assistance.

We live and breathe skateboarding and are here to support it - to give back what it has given so much to us - and pass it on to the next generation, not only by providing great service and selection, but by inspiring kids with events such as pro demos and signings, giving them a chance to see and meet professional skateboarders, as well as other special events such as video premieres, etc.

Your scene is what you make it.
