For Black Friday we wanted to offer some of our cut and sew online as well as some online exclusives product. Make sure you stop by our online store for new upcoming product. We have Mighty Healthy jackets and pants available now. I am sure you can find something in there that you will like.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Hope your Thanksgiving is better than Franklin’s.. Speaking of “post-racial,” stay tuned for the Mighty Healthy Post-Racial tees dropping real soon. You’re gonna love them (or hate them)
Back in the day kids from Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, Long Island and New Jersey would meet up at the Brooklyn Banks to shred. Eventually when you got your crew together you would take a trip to the Financial District to skate downtown. Maiden Lane and the South Street Seaport were always my favorite places to hit.
This Venture ad your’re looking at is Mike Kepper doing a crail slide at the Harlem Banks. To be honest, I was shook heading up there because that’s when skaters were hated on and people used to always fuck with us. It was pretty real back then for sure.
If you needed to make a pitstop to grab a board, wheels, griptape or gear you would stop by Benji’s in the projects.
Benji’s had a skate shop his apartment which later was relocated to Chinatown. I wonder what happened to that dude…..
One of my favorite skateboard companies that I believed represented the East Coast well was Shut Skateboards
I wish I kept these 3 decks for the archives
Barker Barrett, Billy Waldman, Felix Arguelles, Mike Kepper, Harold Hunter, Coco Santiago and Sean Sheffey killed the streets of NY on the regular. They made their presence known in NY and always represented.
I will never forget how these guys made their mark in skateboarding!
This clip from the Deathbowl to Downtown Trailer explains how we were all inspired
