Holystoked collective and company 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 start to rediscovering ourselves and our friendships. Who would have known – a board with four wheels would teach us never to take ourselves too seriously and have fun.
It was our compass in navigating through the challenges of living the skater life, an unknown concept at that time in India. As capitalism was getting ready to slam us, we decided to balance having fun with responsibility. We registered as a company in 2011 and started the oldest skate shop in India.
Holystoked collective focuses on spreading the feeling of getting stoked in India through skateboarding. By promoting all-round development of this culture, we are creating a gateway for people to empower themselves and live their dreams. Skateboarding teaches you to celebrate your 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.
