Tell us a little bit about your shop and its history in the shred scene.
Dave and I established Oncore in summer 2011 to provide our Flagstaff crews a core skateboard and snowboard shop. Our first year exceeded our expectations not only with all the support the shop received locally but with the support we received from the brands we work with as well.
What makes your shop different then all the others?
Our customer services, our products and our staffs knowledge and ability to educate our customers. We also try to give back to the community. We do numerous video premieres and events to help provoke the stoke and show our appreciation for all the support we've received.
Do you have the “couch vibe” or is it more about the product? What is the vibe in general?
I thinks it's a little of both! The brands we carry are a reflection of us and how we want Oncore to be perceived. We're trying to step out of the the comfort zones. We've seen so many shops get into here and offer more specialty driven product lines. We're definitely backing the brands we carry and you'll see that here.
Does your shop carry skate and surf or is it all snow? Briefly describe what we can find on the shelves.
We're a skate shop as well. We have a large selection of skateboards, shoes, apparel and accesories.
What are three things it takes to work in the store?
- Previous shop/retail experience
- You've got to ride here!
- Overall we just want people working here who have the same passion for skatebording and snowboarding as we do!
If it’s a hammering snow day and some of the best pow ever, what do you do to keep employees in the store?
Hide their boots!
Describe your crew that works there.
We have a lot of knowledge and experience in this crew. We've all put some time in this industry and we're still as stoked as the day we started to be doing what we're doing! There's a lot of love here!
What is the most played shred flick in the history of the shop and why?
This past season I'd have to say Capita Defenders of Awesome!
Who are some riders on the come-up that visit your shop... a rider people should look out for?
Flagstaff has a grip of talent. We've been working with kids like Alan Splitter and we're hoping to see some big things from our homie Tyler Harris this season.
Where is the shop local hang out? The best place to grab a drink after hours, or chill with some friends?
Monsoons Downtown! 2 blocks from the shop and the strongest whiskey cokes in town!
If the Rome crew came through would you be cautious to let them in or does the reputation surpass them?
Our doors always open and they'll find cold ones in the fridge!
