RIP CITY SKATE Grand Opening!!!!!!!!!

Post  Revolutionist on Fri Apr 24, 2009 7:59 pm

Due to the overwhelming growth of The Board Room at The Mountain Shop I have decided to move the Skate Shop to its own location at 1510 NE 37th on the corner of 37th and Sandy in the "Budweiser Building." This will be Rip City Skate. The new storefront will feature over 1000 sq ft. of pure skateboarding! Rip City will offer a massive selection of boards from Subsonic, Long Board Larry, Eastside, Rayne, Sayshun, MandM, Arbor, Gravity, and Madrid. RCS's focus will be on the downhill end of skateboarding, but we will carry a selection from all ends of the skateboard world. Exciting new additions to the shop will include precision trucks from Kahalani, Monkey, and Bear, ultralight speed boards from LBL, Sayshun, and Rayne, and we will be working towards building a demo fleet of boards, so that you can ride before you buy! It has been quite process to get the shop to this point and I promise this is only the beginning. I now get to spend 100% of my time improving the skate shop, so you can expect to see even more growth before the summer is up. This could not have been possible without the support of all the kickass riders here in Portland, and I want to thank you all for that. It is important that you all have input in the growth of Rip City Skate, so if there is anything you can't find at the shop that you feel is worth buying let me know, and I will do everything I can to bring it into the shop.
For those in need of skate gear now, and have been turned away from The Mountain Shop this past week, please stay calm. Rip City will be opening its doors on Friday May 1st. For those needing gear sooner than that give me a call on my cell: 503.545.5833 and we can work something out. For everyone else:
Friday May 8th will be the grand opening of Rip City Skate!!
Starting at 7pm Rip City will have live music while running videos compiled by Billy and Casey.
Free food a and beverage will be available.
To culminate the evening at 8pm we will run a screening of Colabo's new video "The Fellowship of The Bearing."
Bring you friends, enemies, girlfriend, boyfriend, mom, dad, brother, sister, dog, and anyone who says you are crazy for bombing hills to the grand opening of
Rip City Skate

My return flight got fucked up from DITCHSLAP, but I'm going to try really hard to find a way back before the opening. If I don't make it back in time, Brenda is the only person I know in possession of a DVD with my skateboarding videos on it. I don't remember how old it is, how I burned it to DVD (since I can't even find any DVD burning software on my computer right now?), or if it even works, but if worst comes to worst, tell her to bring it. You can also download videos from Vimeo, and they are in better quality than it shows, then you can burn those to DVD yourself.

Fuck yah! Congrats JP, that rocks!

I have a question. I'm leading the Midnight Mystery Ride later that night and am looking for a meetup spot. Basically this involves ~50 bikers congregating between 11-11:59pm and then riding off into the darkness. Is this opening going to be bumpin that late or are you trying to hustle people out the door after the screening? Either way, I'll be there, cheers!

I've been going through random old raw footage for the last 14 hours and it turns out I have a lot of cool stuff I haven't found a home yet for. I've got 37 minutes of (mostly) unseen video for the grand opening, so far. I still have to go through a lot of DITCHSLAP clips. 4 hours worth of of them... I'm not doing anything fancy, there is no sound since live music will be playing over it, but there is some good stuff. I'm shooting for not over 45 minutes of video, because Jon and Billy have 15 minutes of their own... I'm stoked for this whole weekend!

Damn Casey...can't wait to see all kinds of footage...this weekend is gonna be rad! I talked to Ryan and David (Mitchell) and I think we're gonna try and have a freeride sesh out in Beaverton by Weir at Murrayhill Park after the Rocky Butte Race and lunch. Should be plenty of out of town riders too. cheers
