clip of the week: Street League Training Day at The Berrics

Well, the 2013 Street League season kicks off today down in Brazil in conjunction with the 2013 X Games. A few of the top Street Leaguers decided it might be a good idea to get some practice in, seeing how skateboarding is a sport and all. And what better place to do that than The Berrics?!

Check out the clip of Mikey Taylor, Chris Cole, P-Rod, Shane O'Neill, Luan Rivera, and crew tearing apart The Berrics (click the picture or right here to see it). Then tune into ESPN 3 today at 11 am and all weekend to catch all the action from the first stop of this year's Street League.

Introducing The Quiet Life

Our latest new brand to arrive here at The Shack is The Quiet Life. It's right in line with our theme of expanding our cut and sew options in the store, but The Quiet Life is not right in line with anything else you've ever seen.

Crazy patterns, risqué photo tees, crisp designs, and top notch 5-panel hats—these are the things The Quiet Life is known for. The Quiet Life is some tight stuff, and you'll definitely want to be coming in and checking it out now that we've got it stocked.

Plus, they sponsor Daniel Espinoza, who also rides for Cliché (professionally now, congrats!), and can be seen in the upcoming Bon Voyage premiere we'll be having next week...

The 2013 Philly Am skateboard contest

The Philly Am is quickly approaching. It's one of the best, most organized contests in our greater tri-state area.

The contest is going down Saturday May 11th at the Ambler Skate Plaza with registration starting at 9am. If you plan on skating we highly recommend you pre-register, as last year skaters were turned away because it filled up so quickly.

You can pre-register here:

If you don't plan on skating it, definitely try and check it out though—you won't find a better contest anywhere around us!

We got a quickie spring order just in and have tons of LRG goodies coming for summer, fall, back to school, and the holidays. And be on the lookout for further expansion...
