About Us

Welcome to Cardinal Skate Co., the newest Toronto skateboard store.  Cardinal Skate Co. is Bloor St.’s only skate shop, and one of only a handful of Roller Derby Stores in Canada, the only one in Toronto.  We are 100% dedicated to the Skateboarders  and Derby enthusiasts in Toronto and the rest of Canada.  We boast a solid team of Skateboarders and sponsor Derby Leagues across the country.  Although Cardinal is on of the newest Toronto Skateboard Stores, opening in April of 2010, we have roots tracing back nearly ten years in these industries.   Cardinal Skate Shop is the result of a merger between Common Ground Skateboard Facility, and www.rollerbug.com.  Common Ground was an indoor skateboard park that operated from 2003 til 2006, and was one of the largest and progressive indoor skate parks that Canada has ever seen, hosting a slew of Professional skateboarders like Eric Koston, Dustin Dollin, Mike Vallelly, Jamie Thomas, Rick McCrank, and too many others to name…  With the addition of Roller Derby Gear, we have changed our name to Cardinal Skate Company.  RollerBug, is an online roller skate and derby store that established in 2005, and played a key role in starting the Toronto Roller Derby League and roller derby in Toronto in general.  Now these two businesses operate under the same roof as Cardinal Skate Co.  For more information, and to make online purchases of roller skates, go to the RollerBug site.
