Holystoked Collective was started by a group of friends with the dream of creating a free skatepark in India.
Dropping headfirst into the unconventional life (when it wasn't a thing) was the beginning of rediscovering ourselves and our friendships. Who knew... a board with four wheels would teach us not to take ourselves too seriously and have fun.
It became our compass in navigating through the challenges of leading a skater life, an unknown concept during the late 2000s in India.
As capitalism was getting ready to slam us face first, we decided 2011 was a good year to start balancing fun with responsibility. We registered Holystoked as a company to start the oldest skate shop in the country.
We love spreading the feeling of getting stoked through skateboarding. By promoting the holistic development of the skate culture, we are creating a gateway for people to empower themselves and live their dreams.
Skateboarding teaches us to celebrate our failures, an important life lesson we want to spread to everyone. Only when we learn to embrace our mistakes do we learn the value of success.
