We’re back with another episode of Shop Talk! After realizing how eager people are to talk some shit and let their opinions fly, we decided to take a trip to the only other place where there is more shit-talking going on than the skate shop – the skatepark.
There are plenty of debates that pop up every single day at the skatepark, and sometimes they get more heated than you’d expect. Did you see Palace’s newest video? Who deserved to win SOTY? And does that pro’s new board brand actually kinda suck?
If you want us to stop by your shop or skatepark and interview the local heads, all you have to do is buy us a plane ticket out there and convince us it’ll be a good time. Fuck it, we’ll probably do it.
