Get On The Dinghy

This year Landyachtz has re-released the Dinghy. They've taken all their knowledge and research in the downhill game and have made one of the best little cruisers on the market today. They made it a bit longer and wider and added a function kick-tail, which means you can take it to the park and rip it if you want.

We're fully stocked on The Dinghy in both Manahawkin and Beach Haven, so make sure you grab one to make this summer the best you've had.

Go Skateboarding Day 2013

This year for the 10th anniversary of Go Skateboarding Day we will be running a few different activities throughout the day, all intended to get you skateboarding and hopefully get you some free gear! Here's a rundown of some of what we're doing (there will certainly be surprise contests, activities, and giveaways throughout the day so pay attention to our social media and stop in the shop at some point):

Jetty/Vine trick contests:
Film a trick at either the Barnegat Light Skatepark, the Waretown Skatepark, or the West Creek Skatepark and tag us AND Jetty on Vine in the video. The best trick at each skatepark will receive a free Jetty t-shirt and sunglasses. And the best overall trick at one of those parks will win one of our NEW shop decks. All videos must be posted by 6pm to qualify. Also make sure to hashtag #goskateboardingday

Instagram scavenger hunts:
We will be hiding 2 boxes of mystery goodies at some point on Friday in random locations in our area. We will post a photo and give a few hints as to where they are. If you find the boxes please take a of photo of yourself with them and tag us in it so we know they were found. Also make sure to hashtag #goskateboardingday #theshackscavengerhunt

Instagram a pro:
If you go out of town to one of the bigger Go Skateboarding Day events and see a pro skater, Instagram a photo of yourself with them AND tag us in it and you'll get yourself a free pair of Stance socks. Also make sure to hashtag #goskateboardingday

the Nyjah Huston shoe is on the horizon

The Nyjah Huston DC signature shoe is on it's way to The Shack Board Shop and should be arriving any day now. We've already received a ton of promotional gear to go along with it for anyone who purchases a pair of the kicks (and maybe we'll even run an Instagram contest of some kind if we have some leftover goodies...).

But while we patiently wait and watch Nyjah on Street League this weekend, check out this clip that Thrasher just dropped on Friday—it's insane. When did skating get to a point that a f/s blunt down an 18 set even seem possible. Or maybe it's just because Nyjah and others have brought it to that level...

2013 Philly Am highlights courtesy EXPNVM

The quickly growing Philly Am skate contest at Ambler Plaza went down last weekend, and Exploitation Video Magazine was on hand as always to get you the goods. Overall it was another great event, and is easily one of the best contests around.

Check out all the results here, and peep the vid above (there's even some clips of some Shack riders). And congrats goes out to friend of the Shack Ronnie Kessner for taking 3rd place in the Sponsored division, as well as a solid placing down in the Maryland Am the weekend before.
