We’re back with another episode of Shop Talk.
This time around, we hit the closest place to Tompkins where you can set up a new board and smoke a spliff before a session, the Fucking Awesome store in Manhattan’s East Village (420 East 9th Street New York, NY). As usual, homies were lurking, joints were burning, and shit was talked.
Now that 2023 is in full gear and already kicking our asses, we wanted to hear what the East Village locals had to say about last year’s SOTY race, companies making comebacks, and New Year’s resolutions. Shout out to the Fucking Awesome store and staff for letting us sit around all day in front of their shop grabbing customers.
If you dig this series and 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.
