FunBox Skateboard Distribution although heavy into longboards on the Website is deeply rooted in street Skateboarding. Back in the 80’s (I am old lol) like every kid I had a dream to become a pro skateboarder. Although very different back then I knew that if I could not make it as a pro I was going to work in skateboarding some way or some how. I started my first “skateshop” when I was 13 or 14 years old called Dan’s Decks and I went to the Ocean City MD trade show to check it all out. I really wanted to be able to offer affordable skateboards to the homies and get stuff on the cheap. Funny because now that I think about it that is what Funbox does and seriously I just put that together right now. wow!
