2017 marks 15 years of Giliskateshop; an institution of the Israeli skate scene. Gili himself opened his doors in 2002 from a small warehouse that he built in his own apartment, and from there his business, and his vision flourished. Gili has made it his business to support the skate scene as a whole; beyond the strict parameters of the sport itself; be it organizing contests or hosting local djs in his store; exhibiting local artists or encouraging the young skaters of the city.
Gili is the corner stone of the Jerusalem scene. Over the past 15 years Gili has had shops all around the country, but now has chosen to focus on his hometown, Jerusalem, and any visitor to Downtown Jerusalem would be a fool not to stop by and say hi. – giliskateshop.co.il
