Skate-NYC Shop on NY Skateboarding

When I think of skateboarding in the late 80’s, I could not forget my first shop sponsor Skate-NYC. Skate-NYC was founded by Steve Schwartz and Tom Agawa. If I remember correctly, Kenny Usamanont was the first sponsored rider for the shop then came me, then came Jeff Pang, then Harold Hunter joined the team. It was a great lineup of what became my extended family of friends; full of laughter and exploring the raw city discovering new skate spots. This video features a glimpse of Skate NYC’s team and the skaters who were just rolling with the crew. Go check out the full article on NYSkateboarding. NY roots, UXA.
