Meet the locals - @doricskateboards 🛹 ❤️

Meet Gary Kemp, owner and creator of Doric Skateboards. Looking to get into something creative, fun and start a passion project for himself, Gary created Doric Skateboards in 2017. Since then, Doric Skateboards has grown organically and become a known local name throughout Aberdeen.

So what does Doric Skateboards sell? Maybe the name gives it away, but he sells skateboard decks, however a big portion of what he sells is also clothing! All Gary's designs are inspired by the North-East of Scotland, Aberdeen, the people and the culture. A lot of his customers are non-skateboardy people, most of them appreciate the celebration of Aberdeen, from those pesky gulls to iconic bars that have closed down. Born and raised here, Gary always had interest in history of Aberdeen, so it made sense to centre his brand around the city!

Doric Skateboards collaborates with a lot of local designers, having done 12 in the last six years, his most recent being one with Hello Radical. He has also recently engaged with a group of graduates from Grays School Of Art to work together on all the ideas he wants to see but doesn't have the time to, so these four talented designers are working with him, plus it also gives them a platform to showcase their designs as well as getting money for their time and effort!
