Damage Boardshop

By Lewi Yonas, UMD Student Intern at Destination Duluth

What first started out as a passion project and a dream of stellar proportions has now become an undeniable success with no slowing down in sight. Damage Boardshop, located at 1904 W Superior St., is Duluth’s very own taste of West Coast culture with a northern Minnesotan twist.

Diversification is key, folks. This is the very foundation that Damage has built their reputation, namesake, and competitive advantage on. Perhaps that is also what has allowed them to prosper for 13 radical years, and right here in Lincoln Park, as a matter of fact. Ben Olson, founder of Damage Boardshop, had a vision of owning his own shop at a young age and pinpointed his ideal location in West Duluth’s budding community.

With cold weather, harsh winds, and the abundance of snow Duluth sees each year, snowboards and the accompanying auxiliary equipment get their fair share of attention. Damage hosts a plethora of events in collaboration with neighboring Spirit Mountain, Chester Bowl, and Giants Ridge.

What’s up-and-coming for Damage Boardshop? Well, limited edition sneaker drops, constantly updated Damaged goods, events posted monthly, and many other promotional items that’ll be sure to make any boarder take note. Make sure to visit their website at and take a peek at their expansive social network, found at @damageduluth. Stop by their shop and skate off a satisfied customer!

Help Sponsor the UMD Internship In Lincoln Park

Destination Duluth has seven interns from UMD working with them this semester. Sponsors of this program are able to have interns promote their business by writing about it, taking photos, promoting your business on Facebook, and even possibly having a drone shoot video of your location.

This is a great intern program that Destination Duluth is managing, and they are looking for additional sponsors to help cover their costs. It can be a tremendous benefit for your business–these interns are creative, smart and enthusiastic, and have experience in marketing and writing. By being a sponsor you will be supporting a very worthwhile program in Lincoln Park.

Please check out Destination Duluth’s website at for all the great things they do to promote Duluth. Contact Jerry Thoreson of Destination Duluth to find out more about their intern program. He can be reached at
