Before skateboarding, a “fakie” was a counterfeit nickel and a “pop shove-it” would put you in the hospital. Kick flip into the twenty-first century with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of skateboarding gear and apparel at Shut Skateboards.
Shut Skateboards' boarding barons construct durable decks, solid gear, and fashionable apparel, all designed to conquer New York's legendary skating scene, which the Shut skate team has helped to cultivate since 1986. Peruse the selection of pre-assembled pothole-hopping boards, or customize any deck by choosing from a dizzying array of trucks, wheels, bearings, and patio furniture. To keep bodies from being exposed to glares from hot-dog vendors, the shop stocks stylish accoutrements for hydrophobic land surfers of all types. Hip-hugging barb belts prevent belt loops from going obsolete ($19.99), while Shut Posse shirts ($9.99) and Shut windbreakers ($49.99) keep torsos in style. To provide busy boarders with convenience and an ollie-like sense of elation, Shut Skateboards invites patrons to scour items online or with the help of a knowledgeable staffer at the store.
