We’re back with another episode of Shop Talk! After hearing from some young New Yorkers, and some obvious New York transplants, we figured that if we wanted to continue to hear from the everyday skater we had to leave New York. So we took a trip to the foreign land of Jersey City to visit NJ Skate Shop to hear from some locals.
Although it’s only a 45-minute drive from where we filmed our last episode, the locals at NJ Skate Shop were much more critical and willing to talk shit. The guests go from telling us that Ishod doesn’t claim Jersey enough to saying that Tik Tok is just for single moms in their 30s. I guess shit-talking runs deep in their blood.
If you want us to stop by your favorite 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.
