Spring is certainly in the air down here in beautiful Wilmington North Carolina and the vibe around Eastern Skateboard Supply reflects this 100%. We have had visitors from NHS Distribution as well as Kebbek longboards new brand manager who all handled their business along side the #ESSCrew for the week. Its always rad to meet individuals from other regions, possibly even other countries eh?, who share the same stoke for skateboarding but express it with a different flair. Skateboarding has no limits and has no rule book outlining a particular format in which a participant must abide which allows for a very controlled anarchy in which every individual has the freedom to disregard every preconceived notion society tries to attribute to the masses and express their own personal brush strokes on the canvas that is Babylon's pavement.

I am amped to be able to bring media from various locations featuring multiple approaches to more accurately represent what skateboarding really is; an art that unites a community all the while encouraging and fostering individualism. Thank you Chris Gallagher for helping to make this possible by providing such high quality skateboarding images as well as thank you to all the skaters featured in this latest installment in the Photo Editorial folder. JAH Bless y'all and make sure to grab yer sled and go for a rip of your own! Stay tuned for further skateboarding media from Chris to come on Beauty Out of Babylon that will hopefully help to push our community in a positive direction as it continues to grow.
I am a skater who lives in Baltimore, MD. I am looking to spread the love of skateboarding through both visual and written means.
