How’s the shop doing?
Who is your typical customer?
Skateboarders, local rippers, and snowboarders in the Wintertime.
Do you have any interesting shoplifting stories?
Once, a mom tried to steal a Zero hat for her kid. She was, like, 300 lbs. So, if that lady is reading this, you're fat.
Do you get any crazy people coming in off the street?
I had a dude come in last week with pamphlets about Jesus and Earthquakes.

Do you have any shop team riders who are flowed by éS Sales Reps or team flow?
Nope. But I've been training.
What’s the best part of running a skate shop?
I get to be an old man and still be involved in skateboarding. Also, I get to try to keep skateboarding fun for my customers.
Which éS shoes sell the best in your shop?
The Accel, Accel Plus and Accelerate. They're just solid shoes, and come in lots of colorways. Plus, we promote them, and kids love the System G2™.
What's the best part about éS?
The best part is promoting skateboarding and keeping skateboarding dollars in skateboarding.
