The shop is not required to reveal where the skateboards are created but owners feel that it gives their products a special touch.
"I'd feel guilty if I were to manufacture a product that the person purchasing didn't know where it was manufactured and if it was gonna be top quality," says co-owner and founder Rodney Smith.
Amateur Skateboarders like Shawn Powers feel a connection to the products made at Shut.
"They're American made, they're from New York. It represents home, where I'm from," he says.
The boards are made at a plant in Maine out of hard rock maple from the Great Lakes region. Since distance is not an obstacle, owners are able to keep a close eye on the process which ensures that high standards are met.
Shut Skateboards is expanding its inventory with a clothing line that will develop with the help of local seamstresses. Although it would be cheaper to turn to other countries for production, it is not a part of Shut's business philosophy.
"We're proud of the product we make and we're proud to stand behind it," added co-owner Andam Schatz.
