Bringing you quality gear since '09
There's something truly natural about the way skateboards explore their surroundings, in the way they redefine familiar places, and push boundaries with every push. But spend enough time on any early skateboard, and there was bound to be a problem—the parts. Screws would strip out and corrode for starters. Bearings often didn't come with spacers, and the ABEC ratings skate shops often sold them by didn't seem to add up.
So Rajewski started doing what any skater would do, figuring it out with his friends, and by march 2009, they started began what would eventually become Fireball Supply Co. What started out as no-nonsense skate hardware, would soon start rolling at unbelievable new speeds when in 2010, Fireball Released the 76 mm Beast...

premium gear, designed for life right here in California
Instead of establishing ourselves as individual and apart from the ecosystem around us, Fireball Supply Co. aims to be a unifying force in the world of streetsurfing. By accepting that a casual approach is often the most sustainable, we'll do our best to support not only ourselves, but everyone we come into contact with when it comes to creating a complete look at skateboarding.
Frustrated with the fact that he kept blowing through bearings, stripping out screws after a single use, or watching them corrode into dust simply because of the salty air, Rajewski began the process of sourcing, sorting, testing, and trying part after part until he began to find more success than what was currently offered on the market.
The process of sourcing and sampling some of the best parts in the world lead to a lot of testing. A lot of testing meant a lot of parts. So many in fact, that is started making sense to buy parts in bulk and selling the best ones using our research as guidance. Sure, we were getting by on our own supply, but with a habit like skateboarding nobody gets away entirely clean. A web store in 2009, and by 2010, we released the 76mm Beast onto the streets of the world
One of the first of it's kind, The Beast came Slide-Prepped, center, set, and lips rounded just enough to let Fireball's first free ride wheels to slide into the hearts of skaters everywhere.Not settled with the success of just one wheel, Fireball recognized the need for different wheels on a skateboard just like fins on a surfboard—where fin shape not only changes functionality, but fun itself. Two years later came the Scorch, and then the Beast. Today's Tinder series makes for some of the smoothest swipes you'll ever make off your phone.
Not settled for just wheels and hardware, Fireball has recently collaborated with several shapers to make shortboards for riding day to day, but we're keeping our options more flexible for the future.
where we're heading
The truth about skateboarding starts when one understands the fastest way to find a skate spot is to look for a “No Skateboarding” sign. It takes confidence to fall freely away from common sense, but once you get your balance, the exploration has just begun. At Fireball we plan on using the principles we were founded on, namely that shortcuts only limit exploration, to ride new ways into the future of fun.
At the end of the day it’s just skateboarding. But at the end of the day, sometimes there is JUST skateboarding. We take that to heart.
