About us

This is our story - Tasmania's local skate brand

Jimmy's Skate & Street was founded by Jimmy McMacken in 2005 and soon after, brother Paul McMacken came onboard to help manage the growing business.

The idea was to create a skate shop dedicated to skaters.  Owned and operated by local skaters, for local skaters.  Jimmy's was actually, the first shop 100% dedicated to skateboarding in Tassie.  

As a local, family owned and operated business, Jimmy's is truly Tasmanian and we like to treat all of our customers like part of our crew.

Since the first little store was opened over 15 years ago, we've come a long way.  Now we're stocking the latest in street wear and shoes, and Tassie's largest range of skateboards.  This includes both our own apparel label and our own skateboard brand.

We're always trying to stay up the the current trends, so that Jimmy's is the first point of call for skate and street wear.  And we're pretty bloody chuffed to be helping the next generation of skaters come through.
