Sin City Skates was the first Derby specialty store established in 2005 by Ivanna S. Pankin and Trish the Dish. For more on how it all began read their story below

In January 2017 the torch was passed to new owner Kelly 'Bo Toxic' Timm. Sin City Skates shop relocated to new location in the heart of San Diego, CA and continues to serve the skate community around the globe.

Bo Toxic is a ten year Derby veteran and has travelled the US playing at thehighest level of both banked and flat track derby. Bo is well-versed in transitioning from surface to surface utilizing different rule sets to her advantage. She has captained and coached all levels over the years and is currently a private coach specializing in one on one training. In Roller Derby Bo is in known for her strong communication as a pivot and aggressive blocking style but believes the key to success on any surface is team work.  Bo Toxic
Bo recently retired from ranking play but can be found skating for pick up teams, coaching and enjoying street and skate parks during her free time.

On a personal note, Bo was born and raised in San Diego, CA. She has a backround in accounting and business management and has worked in many fields through out her career ranging from Office management to sports marketing but she's happiest doing what she loves, sharing the stoke of roller skating. Bo is happily married to her husband of 12 years and has 2 daughters.

That's Trish the Dish on the left and Ivanna S. Pankin on the right of our very first customer in our very first storefront location for the shop, back in 2006.

Ivanna actually started the shop doing mail-order in our living room in Las Vegas in November of 2005 when she got tired of buying crappy gear at inflated prices from stores that knew nothing about roller derby or equipment for our sport.  Ivanna's co-captain, best friend and biggest rival, Trish the Dish, joined the crew shortly after to help her with the first "Christmas Rush" and the shop has just grown from there!

There were no derby shops at all back then, and not very many teams, either, but we decided our team - and our opponents & friends - deserved better than equipment choices developed for other sports and shyster online shops pushing their tired backstock of recreational skates on new derby players that had few resources to look for better.

So we started researching gear and helping manufactures create gear that makes sense for derby.  The sport of derby grew quickly and the shop grew with it, so we hired more teammates as the shop just got busier and busier. 

Sin City Skates has moved a few times now - temporarily to Tucson, Arizona, and finally landed in San Diego. We were the first derby shop and we're still the best, with the most stock on hand and the most awesome, knowledgeable, patient and experienced employees ready to help you get exactly what you need to play your very best game.
