Fairman’s Skate Shop Since 1977!

I have been shopping/supporting Fairman’s Skate Shop for about 10 years now and stand by it as one of the best local shops in West Chester. I remember the first time walking into Fairman’s and feeling nervous, I was very young and new to the whole skateboard scene/lifestyle at the time… Also because I was walking into a place were I knew many legendary skateboarders have worked and came out of, such as Bam Margera, Kerry Getz, and Andrew Cannon just to name a few. However, As I entered the shop I was quickly greeted by staff and they were very helpful and kind, right then and there I felt nervous no more, I felt right at home. After that first experience at Fairman’s I have been shopping and hanging out there ever since, I am now close friends with every staff and team member. I have Fairman’s to thank for growing my love and passion for skateboarding and thank them for helping me assemble my very first skateboard years ago.

Next time you’re in town make sure to stop by Fairman’s located on the corner of West Gay and North Church Streets in the heart of historic downtown West Chester. Even if you do not skate, snow, or surf they offer a wide selection of apparel and shoes for everyone. Below is a short description of the shop and hours of operation… Happy shopping!

“Fairman’s was established in 1977, It is one of the East Coast’s oldest and most respected Skate, Snow and Surf shops. We are a single-location, family-owned business.  We’re proud to be skating into our fourth decade.”

West Chester: Philly AM Recap

The Philly Am isn’t one of the largest skate contest series on the east coast, it’s THE largest skate contest series on the east coast. Once again, Jon Crans and the rest of the dudes at ThreeSixteen Skateboarding threw together a great contest at the new Providence Skate Spot in downtown West Chester, PA. Just about 100 kids skated in the contest and they had about 200 spectators come in and watch throughout the day. The format was fairly simple. Five skaters at a time for a five minute jam sesh. At the end of the day, Abe Howell from West Chester came out on top in the sponsored division winning a solid three hundred dollar check, and Kevin Liedtke came in second. Honorable mention goes out to Henry Jones who absolutely killed it. Everyone should go check out the new skate spot though! It’s open Monday-Wednesday 3pm-dusk (free and padless) and there is permanent ledges that are open to the public 24/7. – Eric Witmer

Top 6:

1st: Abe Howell
2nd: Kevin Liedtke
3rd: Henry Jones
4th: Tyler Thomas
5th: Kyle Knoblauch
6th: Jeremy Murray
