Olio Festival + Color Magazine presents SLAPPY DAYS with BLVD Skate Shop
The early days of street skating can be traced back to the shutting down of skateparks in the 80's. Those that were possessed to skate weren’t about to let that hold them back and took to their neighbourhood parking lots to make use of the most plentiful resource they had… Curbs!
BLVD Skate Shop invites you on a friendly skateboard trip down memory lane where pants were big, wheels were small and the only thing in your way from learning new tricks was the extent of your imagination.
Along with teammates Mikemo Capaldi & Justin Eldridge, legendary Girl Skateboards alumni, Guy Mariano introduces "Pretty Sweet" to the skaters of Vancouver, BC and takes a moment away from the slammin' after party to speak on 'Internet Parts' and what it means to be part of such a large team video production in 2012.
