ABOUT SUPER ORANGE SKATEBOARDING

Super Orange Skateboarding is a skateboard brand based in Oegstgeest near Leiden in the Netherlands, with Canadian roots. Simplicity, quality, old school, family and friends is what typifies Super Orange Skateboarding: Dutch design on Canadian decks.

Douglas Gordon is the driving force behind all of this. A seasoned skateboarder from White Rock BC Canada who started back in the days a skateshop overthere named "Boardkennel". During spring and summer he worked in his little shop and in the winter he traded his skateboard in for a snowboard to conquer the Canadian Rockies. When his father passed away, Doug traveled the world for a long time and finally he settled in the Netherlands to continue his dreams together with his Dutch girl.
