Notes to Editors
SkateHut was established in 2007 by Mark Johansen-Berg following a family holiday to Florida with his wife and three sons. When his eldest son spotted a pair of Heelys in one of the theme parks, he just had to have a pair! Upon arriving back to the UK, they realised that Heelys were nowhere to be seen. Mark and his family decided to do something about it.
Skatehut has grown a lot since then, now stocking skateboards, scooters, skates, bikes, clothing, footwear and just about anything else skate related! SkateHut consists of three warehouses and three stores – SkateHut Halesowen, SkateHut Corby (Adrenaline Alley), and the newest addition, SkateHut Manchester, located in Graystone Action Sports Academy.
