See Spot Shred is a new book from our friend Dylan Goldberger. Dylan is an artist from Brooklyn. This is his first book and is written and illustrated by him. It’s amazing! IT’s the “first ever alphabet picture book about skateboarding dogs.” !!! This is perfect gift for any skateboarder of any age!!
We are overstocked! Holiday lines are coming in daily! See, the problem is, I’m a fan of this stuff that we sell. So, I buy it all for the shop so I can have it! BUT, I have to pay for it! That’s where you come in! You need to come buy it off me! Then I will have money to BUY MORE STUFF I LIKE to sell to you! Everything in here is sweet! Trust me. You will look good and be happy. Today- Friday the 13th (spooky!), all longsleeves are 20% off! That’ll save you $10 on a $50 hoodie! Put that $10 in your gas tank on PLUS! You’re welcome!

Today was the Beginner and Intermediate divisions of the 15th Annual Fall Classic. Weather sucked-typical for Fall Classic! Cold, windy and intermittent rain. Did that dampen our mood? HELL NO! We charged on and the skaters killed it! Actually when it was dry, it was great skate weather, just not great for sitting and announcing!
All the beginner skaters killed it. Cayden Byington who comes from Grand Rapids area for the contest took home first place beating out a surprised Jason Simmons who had great style. Local Antonio Keka took third.
Intermediate had double the competitors of beginner which made it fun. Alante Wilsin cruised to first with a fast, powerful style. Brandon Zuzak got second, and plusfam Kiernan Fitzsimmons got third. Intermediate is filled with dudes who could compete in Advanced. Lots of great skating in that division.
After Intermediate, we held the annual Tic Tac Race. The Tic Tac race is open to anyone who’s at the park. It’s meant to remind everyone that skateboarding is fun and should not be taken seriously! Tony Christopher tic-tac’d his little heart out and took first. Repeat winner!
We ask had two special ‘Styley Rider’ awards presented by Bob’s Boards. Custom boards were awarded to the skater who showed style throughout the contest as judged by Bob’s Boards owner RJ Mcguire. Winners were Elijah Abrams and Jalen Elkins.
Thanks to all the sponsors of the event–I’ll have a list up soon. Thanks to Alfredo Meyers, aka DJ Rapidfire. Thanks to Josh Rubin and Tony Christopher who were the judges. And thanks to RJ Mcguire who was timekeeper and helped with setup and tear down. Couldn’t do it without you guys. Thank you!
