A few months ago an old friend told me he was contemplating opening up a skate shop in BH. Then he went and got a space. And now he’s finally opened up his shop. C’mon on in and take a look!
Yup, it really is a skate shop, look at all them boards! When I was younger this sight would have made my day. Instead I bought my first real-ish board from some toy shop on Whittier. I thought it was the best board ever.
Don’t forget the trucks. They come in all kinds of colors. The green ones go faster, the red ones are for quicker stopping. Sure, why not.
Oh yeah, they also have wheels, which are an optional but useful feature on skateboards. Hmm, I didn’t see any rusty metal ones like the kind I used to ride, maybe they ran out. BTW, thats the board CHAKA used to ride a long time ago.
They round out their shop with some interesting t-shirts…
… even some punk classics…
… and a bit of art, some not even skate related!
Some shoes, tees, and a fridge for cold water and refreshments. Looks like the making of a decent after-school hangout spot.
Meet Mando and the crew! When you go to get your next board, don’t tell them I sent you or you’re likely to pay more than full price.
Good Luck, Soul Skating!
