Who are we?

Alternate skate is a skateboarding brand focussed on providing you with the best media, apparel and hardgoods from the Belgian and European scene.

We try to deliver the best content we can and work hard to make it. Our clothes are made in-house and it warms our heart to see people wearing them and standing behind the entire concept 
of what we do.

As skating is more to us than just a sport, we try to portrait the family, passion and people we encounter.

We do this out of love for the scene. Out of passion for the sport. Out of gratitude for everything skating has done for us.

Skating has changed each one of our lives. The people we meet doing it, give us new perspectives on life and make us learn more about it.

We do this for you, as a thank you for all the love.

This is our grateful response to everyone that makes the skatescene as great as it is.

Thank you ❤️

The roots

About 4 years ago we found our roots in Downhill Skateboarding, and started Alternate as a media collective.

We just loved the adrenaline, speed and being able to share that feeling going down the hill with all your buddies.

At that time, there was a fast growing scene in Belgium. Supported by core store ‘The Cave’ in Ghent. This is where we grew up and also discovered how skateboarding was just another way of expressing this feeling.

When the main downhill event ‘Wallonhill’ wasn’t being organised anymore, and a lot of homies had kids and work replacing their weekly downhill activities; the scene kind of started falling apart.

This is what really started the transition to skateboarding for Alternate as a brand.
Which board we had under our feet didn’t change anything about the love we have for skateboarding.

We just loved making video’s and pictures to portrait our love for the piece of wood and the lifestyle.

And this is what we’re still doing to this day.
