April 2007 Skateboard Blog Post

Then the Next Day Everyone has a favorite skate shop - well, most everyone. I have a new one. It's Day One in Bridgeport, CT. I used to live down the street from it's location (wasn't there at the time - dammit!). I pass through the area every few weeks and have gotten to know the owner. He's a really cool guy and runs a great shop. He carries a lot of local brands and is very active in the sk8 community.

On my last visit I picked up Thrasher's Box Set of DVDs - an amazing find of awesome vids - The whole Thrasher VHS collection on 6 DVDs. I also found out that the guys from Grindline were breaking ground on a new sk8 park in Stamford, CT. I had to check it out...

Park In Progress - CT I love visiting skate parks - not just to skate, but to check out the different styles, scenes and all that good sk8 shit. Upon hearing of a grindline park in the ground breaking phase, I had to check it out. It's in Scalzi Park just a ½ mile from the Stamford, CT train station. A couple of the guys were on-site and let me walk around and shoot a few pix. With the train station a ½ mile away, I'm sure there will be a lot of NYC dwellers heading north to check it out.
