Select Scooters - The stunt scooter people
We created Select scooters because we believe that action sports are a great way of developing confidence and channeling energy into postive channels. We love to be involved within the local community and are constantly impressed by the enthusiasm and progression of the sport within the UK.
In the future, we plan to reduce entry barriers to those that would like to give the sport a go in the forms of free stunt scooter lessons in and around the Stockport area with intentions of implementing them in other skateparks around the U.K

Owner - Alex Watson
A rollerblader at heart with a passion for all rolling sports—also, someone who finds it strange talking in the third person. With a degree in marketing and psychology, experience working in B2B and B2C businesses, I wanted to find a way to add value to society on my terms. A skate shop was a childhood pipe dream that fit well with the demand for rolling sports gear in the Stockport area gave birth to Stockport Skateshop in November 2018.
With no retail experience other than a few months at Nandos and many other skills lacking, help from many friends to fill those gaps was essential for the shop's sustainability. Owen Peters, Elliot Jones, Morgan Mcshane, Nick Hart, and a few people are why the skate shop ran as smoothly as it did; I am incredibly grateful for their help and support.
In 2020 we decided to focus our energy on one sport to serve our customers better, and Select scooters were born and our sister brand Alchemy Scooters. Starting a business has been a catapult to personal growth, and I enjoy the journey of incremental progression. I would recommend biting the bullet if you have a venture in mind, even just in your spare time, to see how far you could take it
