MARCH 2012 SHOP OF THE MONTH SLAPPY'S GARAGE

We are proud to announce SLAPPY'S GARAGE as our SHOP OF THE MONTH for MARCH. Slappy's is a prime example of a skater owned and operated skate shop. San Diego Legend Jason Carney and Jake Doomey have opened themselves up a nice little shop in the hills of Ramona. IF you ever find yourself up that way, be sure to pop in and show some support!
