Welcome to the site

welcome to the site
Here you can find the latest news on what’s happening here at The Boarding House.

We don’t have 140 pages of glossy products you can buy - we’ve been here since 1984, we deal with everyone; anything you want - we can get it!(if it’s not already in our well stocked shop).

I’ll let you in on a secret - those massive website shops with a picture of every part under the sun on their pages - they don’t have some mega superstore with every product available ready to go- they order it in, then sell it on to you. 

Just like us.

Except, we’re here for you - when you need to come in and ask advice so you get the right part . . .
we can (if required) fit it for you so you know it's been correctly installed . . .
or if you want to borrow our tools . . .
maybe find out where the best parks are . . .
and meet mates to go to FPot skatepark 5 mins down the road.

Check out the shop history page, we’ve been involved in building/campaigning for every ramp and skatepark in Exeter since 1988! And next year see’s a massive new concrete park being built at FPot, carrying on the epic sessions that have gone down there for the last 10 years . . . 

Thanks for all the support since ’84, hope to help you out in the shop soon,

The planning and design stage for the replacement of Flowerpot Skate Park is now well underway. The Council have set up a mailbox - newskatepark@exeter.gov.uk and they welcome your ideas and suggestions, they want as much feedback as possible. Going to be concrete, email them now and have your say!
