Clash of the Crews 2015 presented by Vans

20 skate shops went head to head last weekend for our Clash of the Crews contest, presented by Vans. It was a tough call, but Island Water Sports came out on top with the SPoT team at a close second. Congrats to everyone who placed and thanks to Vans for making this a success. Shouts to Big Storm Brewing too, for hooking up their own prizes for this and providing the free sauce all weekend. Check out the recap, photos, and full list of results here.

Concrete Courtyard 2015 Update

The courtyard at SPoT is getting some additions that should be ready by the end of the week.

Team Pain is putting in work again, so you know the quality will be on point. Check out a few photos I took of the progress and stay tuned for more as we get them.
