We just got an awesome order of new decks in! We are proud to welcome AFTERNOON SKATEBOARDS to our lineup. The only problem is they might be too nice to skate! These are a superior quality deck and are wicked to skate. They are tried and tested by our shop riders who all love them! Get in here for a coffee and see these in person.
