Hard Times Skate Shop is located inside of Cradock’s Historic Afton Square Shopping Centre at 67 Afton Parkway, Portsmouth, VA 23702. Just a few blocks away from George Washington Skate Park. Some of the things that set us apart from our competitors are exceptional customer service, free WiFi, a knowledgeable staff and special orders, all in a comfortable atmosphere. Hard times isn’t your typical skate shop, we carry a little something for everyone, being that we are located in the middle of the Cradock community. Don’t get it confused though, SKATEBOARDING is always our 1st priority. The majority of footwear, apparel, and skate goods are from core skate companies, but we also have some fun items from some exciting non-skate brands. We are open 7 days a week to serve you, and are always open to questions, concerns and suggestions.
