The homies over at Supra Distribution, Canadian distributor of Deluxe, were awesome enough to hook up an interview so we can get to know them a little better. Shout out to Marco and the rest of the Supra crew for agreeing to do this. Enjoy!

How long has Supra Distribution been in business?
Going hard since ‘99

Where is Supra headquartered and how many locations do you have across Canada?
The main headquarters is North Vancouver, with offices in Toronto and Montreal.
What brands do you distribute and what territory do you cover?
Girl, Chocolate, Royal, Fourstar, Quiet life, Lakai, DVS, Matix, Diamond footwear, Real, Spitfire, Krooked, Thunder, Anti-Hero, Venture, Alien Workshop, Habitat skateboards & footwear, Mob grip, Palace….. a long beautiful list. We distribute from the pacific to the atlantic in Canada. Such a blessing to be involved with all these brands and the people behind them are some of the greatest people in the world! Our brands are at the heart of skateboarding and the people behind them are truly exceptional.
Who rides for Supra Distribution?
Too many dudes to list, but always looking for more. If you got a sponsor-me tape, please send it to Dane@supradistribution.com. He loves them!

It seems like bigger decks and wheels have made a comeback in recent years. What is your top selling deck size? What size wheel do you sell the most of?
According to our warehouse experts, 8.125 and 52mm whites are the hot sellers lately.

Why are skater-owned shops important?
Passion and persistency are more important than profits to skater owned shops. Skaters that own shops are often at the heart of the skate community and therefore they throw events and promote skateboarding for their shops and brands. That kind of passion cannot be replicated and must be respected.
