About Us

ESS was established in 1985 by professional freestyle skateboarder Reggie Barnes. As the owner of Endless Grind skate shop in Raleigh, NC, Reggie quickly gained a passion for brick & mortar shops as the lifeblood of any skateboarding community, as well as a deep understanding of what it takes to make a shop successful. Since day one our focus has been to support real shops and the communities they serve by providing a diverse product selection under one roof. As the largest skate & surf distributor in the world, we offer something for any shop and take pride in offering the most comprehensive wholesale selection!
