Top 5 Questions I get asked working at the Shop

1. Do you sell Crocs? WTF ahhhhh no we don't.... Well do you know where I can get some? Do I look like the kinda person who wears CROCS

2. Do you carry heelies? I hate that cause we our a skateshop that we have to be associated with every crappy "extreme" toy that is out there on the market.

3. What board has the most pop? I tell people who ask me this question "Pop is all based on having a solid balanced breakfest usually with a snap and a crackle"

4. Do you have any Darkstar impact resin9? No that sh*t is just a gimmick... all you need is 8 plys of maple

5. Are these all your Vans? yes they are! The distribution company who supplies our Vans is based out of Montreal and they have nothing for instock in there warehouse ever.

Most Under Rated: Matt Beach

I never know what to say in these things but watch his video so sick. I'm excited that he is now on Skate Mental and I am looking forward to seeing a full part from him in the near future.

New Poll on Antwaun Dixon

Watching the new Deathwish Tour video I cannot decide if I like Antwuan Dixon. His skating is so damn good but the face tatt's and his need to fight everyone??? His Baker 3 part was one of my favs in the video but now a days I'm just not sure if I am down with what he is up too. So I made a new poll... what do you think about Antwuan?

Most Under Rated: Wade Speyer

Wade is a true ripper who can skate anything and everything. Wade skates ramps like a champ and is always full of explosive energy. He layed quietly under the radar in the 90's and in the early 2000's and mostly let his skating talk for himself. The first footage I saw of Wade was in a contest video and Wade was tearing Marsielle up. It seemed that Cardiel, Omar, and Wade were blasting higher and farther than everyone else.

Watch his part in the Think video "Dedication"... it won't disappoint. I'm going to try and make a small post of my favorite under rated skaters once a week here on the blog. Hope you enjoy.

This Saturday: The DC Nationals

When: Saturday June 13th
Where: The Forks Plaza
Time: Practice starting at 10:30/ Contest Starting at 11:00

Prizes include first place winner gets a free trip out the DC Nationals held in Vancouver B.C., decks, shoes, tee's, and more.
