About Us

We offer Western North Carolina's best selection of Skateboards, Longboards, and Snowboards. We feature a large selection of hardgoods, apparel, boots, and accessories from the BEST BRANDS IN THE INDUSTRY!  We strongly support rider-owned brands that are keeping Skateboarding and Snowboarding innovative.

We are rider owned and family operated since day one.  We strive to redefine your expectations when shopping for a Skateboard or Snowboard.  We believe in brick and mortar staffed with knowledgeable people.  Don't buy your board from a big corporation or close out company on the computer- buy your board from a small business.  Don't buy your board from a mall store- buy your board from a local shop that gives back to the local community.

Flipside Boardshop was Western North Carolina's original skateboard and snowboard shop.  Our first location opened it's doors  in 1994 and was purchased by Krista in 1999.  a staple of "old Asheville" in beautiful downtown for over 21 years.  The Asheville store was purchased by Krista in 1999.  On September 1, 2020 we closed our Lexington Ave location to pursue more time with our family and focus on our rental shop in Maggie Valley, NC.  We kept the old phone number as a cell so please call or text us.  828-254-9007

The real story of Flipside begins with a chance meeting of Krista and her now husband Jason in 2006.  The two fell in love and starting dreaming about having a location in Hendersonville, NC; where Jason grew up, as they remodeled the Asheville store together.  They found a great location within walking distance of the proposed Patton Park Skatepark and opened in 2007.  Flipside Boardshop of Hendersonville was the first snowsports store in the county supporting a huge local scene of skateboarders and snowboarders.  In June of 2018 we chose to close our Hendersonville location to focus on our snowboard rental shop in Maggie Valley.  We want to thank the Hendersonville community for a decade of memories and long lasting friendships that we developed along the way.  We appreciate all of our loyal customers that continue to support our existing location and order from us online.


Our third location in Maggie Valley, NC was certainly a dream come true as our owners really wanted to be part of the amazing community surrounding the Cataloochee Ski Area.  Flipside Boardshop of Maggie Valley opened it's doors in 2013 as the area's first true snowboard shop that didn't also sell skis.  We have grown our rental department with brands that we carry in store to allow the intermediate and advanced riders more options in the area for rentals.  We also stock demo boards from popular models to allow the customer to try a board before the buy it.

Flipside is very proud  to support rider owned independent brands that are at the heart of the skateboard and snowboard industry.  These brands are giving back to our industry and pushing forward progression in technology and quality.  We have been rider owned since day one.

Our owners are both natives of Western North Carolina and share a passion for board sports.  They have over 40 years of combined experience in skateboarding and snowboarding.  Owning their own business is a dream come true.  They are both owner/operators and enjoy building a relationship with their customers whether it be in person or online.  

"I have always said that have the best customers in the world.  Now thanks to my online sales I can say that I have amazing customers all over the world.  You have allowed me to do what I love every day for over 22 years.  I am blessed to know every one of you and sencere thanks to all of you that have allowed us to be part of your families.  It has been a pleasure to have been part of such an exciting and dynamic industry for so many years."  K.
