NJ Sk8 Legends Collection

Adding board #5 to my New Jersey Skateboarding Legends collection! Chris Pastras, aka Dune! I love this board & am tempted to set it up & ride it…but I won’t! For all my non-skater friends, Chris Pastras is from Metuchen & we skated together sometimes like at Kendall Park roller rink or […]

Putting Together a Team!

Kids ask me all the time: do you sponsor?  Well, kids, we sponsored some of the gnarliest shredders to come out of New Jersey!  Pat Guidotti and Ricky Oyola both skated for ABF in 1989!
