Thanks to the Vans Syndicate group for highlighting our humble store. We do the best we can and it is appreciated.
check out the Syndicate blog post HERE for the write-up:
Syndicate…. is the embodiment of the culture that chose us. I grew up in what I would consider the “golden era” of skateboarding, in that I was aware and influenced at a young age in the 80’s, became an active participant in my teenage / adult years, and am now honored to keep up and affect change as a store owner of 20+ years. The Syndicate group highlights these very things — showing respect to the past – taking that history and rebuilding it into a strong current story line – and setting the tone for the future by integrating new technologies, ideas and relationships. It is a kindred spirit in this ever changing environment. We consider the Syndicate crew, both past and present, a part of our extended family, and treat the brand as our own.
It is a rare thing to be able to look at the back catalog and grow more and more fond of literally each and every release. For this I am grateful, to be able to participate and contribute to a small degree, and celebrate the skateboarding, musicians, artists and brand builders that helped to shape the person I have become.
