Catch a Frozen Wave on Cape Cod [Business]

Cape company ramps up skate and snowboard prominence

Local entrepreneur and life-long Cape Codder Brandon Bader is the second generation owner of the Olde Tavern Motel on Route 6A in Orleans. While he continues to run the successful Lower Cape lodging, Bader has been able to also attain his dream of a career in the skating and snowboarding industry.

Although the company carries a full line of apparel including hats, hoodies and t-shirts, and skate accessories, it is probably best known for its skateboard and BMX ramps. In fact, Steez Magazine dubbed Frozen Waves "New England's premier ramp company."

Frozen Waves has constructed several indoor and outdoor skate parks and even rents halfpipes (skateboard ramps) for birthday parties. The design and materials Frozen Waves uses allows you to create your own custom skate park right in your driveway or backyard.

According to Bader, he has enjoyed being able to find success "meshing live music with skateboarding and snowboarding." Although online only now, Bader hopes to open a local shop here on the Cape soon.

Contact Frozen Waves by email or by calling 774-722-8808 if you are interested in purchasing or building your own ramp or if you are looking to rent a ramp for a special event. And don't miss Frozen Waves' ramp specials now through the spring.
