Considering the history- it is probably the very first skate shop in Nepal founded by Nepal-born Marius Arniko Arter. Arniko who spent much of his childhood in Nepal returned from Switzerland after completeing his carpentry apprenticeship. Due to the lack of decent skate shops in Nepal he founded Arniko Skateboards in 2007 and later opened the first store in Thamel, Kathmandu in 2009. Kudos to the whole team for being very ethical, giving employment opportunities to Nepalis as well as doing something innovative- since it is not doubt that to say that number of young players belonging to different informal clubs were really suffered from guardianship of single umbrella and was fulfilled through the official establishment of the association and working with in close coordination of National Sport Council.
