About Fargo Skateboarding
Fargo Skateboarding is everything skateboarding: a skate shop run by skateboard enthusiasts, and a nearly 10,000 square ft. heated indoor skatepark. Originally opened in 2007 as Smalltown Skate Shop by NIU graduate Ariel Ries, the company recognized a need for a year-round community space that would be a training facility for skateboarders.
In 2015 Smalltown moved 4 blocks east, changed it's name to pay homage to it's new location in the recently restored Fargo Theatre that was built in 1929. Expanding from being strictly retail, Fargo Skateboarding now offers skateboard lessons, classes, and skate session times, along with special events including contests, live music, clinics, and art shows. Fargo Skateboarding welcomes and encourages people from all abilities and ages to progress their skateboarding skills in a safe, fun environment.
