Welcome to SHOP OSF!

Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) is a Toronto District School Board reengagement program that helps students earn high school credits by running a skate/longboard design business. In addition to learning how to build skateboards and longboards, students at OSF create their own skate and street wear brands. This site is both a portfolio and shop, showcasing our students' products as well as the OSF Shop Brand and retail collaborations with Community Partners.

All purchases are considered a donation to the OSF program to cover material costs with profits of each product going to the student designer in the form of an honorarium when they succesfully finish each semester. Your support of OSF helps students develop transferable creative and entrepreneurial skills...Thank-you!

To order any OSF products, get a student to design a hand-made Canadian maple board with your own logo or original custom graphic, or to request an OSF teacher/student-led SK8 or Street Art workshop in a school or community setting, please contact OSF Founding Teacher Craig Morrison at oasisskateboardfactory@gmail.com
